I was like "What".
My OH and I have two cards with different numbers on the same account. And some how these bast*#ds had got hold of OH credit card number and has spent €1200.00 in one afternoon, on pizza and phone credit and daft things like that
The bank had no idea how they got hold of number or anything. The insurance will cover it, but now I have no credit card and I found a great deal on the Internet for a hotel room in France and now I cant book it!!!
This is the first time anything like this has happened to us...
Has anything like this ever happened you any of you???
I will be scared to use my credit card online any more!!
I had a text from the bank on Saturday morning to ring them ASAP. So I rang them and they were like there has been 15 transactions on your credit card since yesterday
That is awful, it happened to my sister last year. She booked a weekend in a hotel in cork & the next day someone was buying clothes etc on Macy's website they clocked €1800 on her credit bill, took ages to sort out but 'seemingly' someone had hacked into hotel website & used her credit card number but thankfully insurance covered it. Hope you get sorted soon
OH had got something off Amazon a week before, I wonder would they have hacked into that???
can you buy those temporary credits that only have a cerrain limit on them to book your holiday? i,m sure there is a proper name on them but i cann't think of it. brain is still in monday morning mush.
I know somebody who bought off Amazon recently and their card was used for other transactions so maybe it's something to do with their site??
Oh My God,that's awful!!!
It happened to me a couple of years ago,i booked an hotel over the phone and a few days later i got my cc bill and got some shock.Rang the customer service line,got through the fraud squad and chatted to them.They sent me out a form i signed it and that was it.
So never give your cc details over the phone,even hotels.Had to cancel the cards and got a new one the same week.The f%ckers bought stuff in california
[b:186cx45l]THERE IS A CARD THAT YOU CAN ORDER FROM THE PTS BANK. IT IS CALLED A 3V VOUCHER BUT IT LOOKS THE SAME AS ATM CARDS. THERE IS A MAXIMUM LIMIT OF €300 OR €350 SO IF SOMEONE DID GET THE DETAILS FOR IT THERE IS A LIMIT. CHECK OUT THE TSB SITE BECAUSE I ORDERED MINE OFF THERE. ITS VERY HANDY IF YOU DONT LIKE USING YOUR CREDIT CARD DETAILS ON SITES. [/b:186cx45l]
