Credit Card Fraud
 
hello everyone

I'm just writing up this thread because I just had my bank call me about my credit card. Turns out somebodies got my info.

Now this card is only used for online things and has a 500$ limit.
They tried to take money from me 29 different occasions today alone.

I had just purchased a NS SL-r for total of 480 so they only managed to get 20 bucks out of the account.

And the only things I've use the card for in the past month were a speeding ticket and this board so its a little suspicous.

I bought the board from the boardroomshop.com. Not sure if anyone has any previous experience with them but be careful.


Now this is not an accusation or anything as I don't believe it was the retailer, but no less it was a concern which my bank had found before too long, and I felt the need to tell other people to be careful when dealing online.

Wow that sucks. I use other people to buy my crap on line and then pay them back. I'm a paranoid SOB when it comes to the Internet; and it's because of things like this.

Do you call in orders? Or just submit them from the comp?

And is it honestly the ONLY thing you use it for besides the ticket? No liquor, beer, gas at all?

Don't lie you use it for internet porn.

I did it from the comp.

and no i don't use it for anything else because the stripe is messed on it so it can't be read in machines at the stores or atms

and yes the only things I have put on that were my speeding ticket and this board, and I lied i just checked my statements its actually been 2 months since i used it and i did those two transactions within a week of each other.

and it can't be the computer cause I've got all my banking information on the computer and that was the only card affected.


and if it wasn't the boardshop transaction that means that toronto parking tickets does not have a secure website LOL.

I work in the service industry where we deal with alot of debit and credit transactions. You would be surprised that even at palces you dont expect would skim cards.

Usually when cards are skimmed, they dont use them til at least 6 months or more. That way the card user and banks would have a harder time to trace down when and where the cards numbers are swiped.
