Personally, I don't trust ShopTo anymore, which is the case for many people.

I know some say they're fine and have never had any trouble - but just read around, and it's no coincidence that so many ShopTo customers have had fraudulent activity on their account(s) after using their cards with ShopTo.

I had to deal with the fraud department regarding my credit card after using ShopTo - and then five weeks after using my Visa bank card at ShopTo (a card that I'd had for over two and a half years!!) - I was contacted by the fraud department at my bank. Coincidence? I think not.

Not voted either way, but personally, I wouldn't order this game with them if they were selling it for £12.95 - it's not worth the hassle that will come eventually.

they had one incident were they were hacked into a few peoples card details were stolen but it wasnt shop to fault it can happen to any website + they now have safty measures to stop it from happening again

and if they were selling it at £12.95 you would bite there hand off like everyone else

I've never had a problem with shopto, 've ordered a lot from there and you get it at least a day before release day, the problem with the cards was not at shopto's end, evryone just likes to say it is without actually reading up on the subject.

Hot from me, but i've already got mine preordered from them

i have used shopto loads of times and they have been spot on with price and delivery.then i had £30 stolen from my account when i used them last time,reported it to barclays fraud dept. and was refunded the money a few weeks later.
i dont trust them anymore so will not use them again which is a shame because they have some good deals with rapid delivery......google it and see we are not the only ones:x

From the shopto forums

My name is David Fennell I am the technical director here at ShopTo. It has been brought to my attention recently by a few customers that they believe we are the cause of fraudulent activity on their credit cards based on nothing more that the fact they have recently purchased from us (even if we were not the last place they have used the card). So we have decided to make a statement explaining the real causes of card fraud and what you can do about them.


From what we can tell there seems to have been several major credit card leaks in late 2008 and in the early part of 2009, these credit cards are now making their way into the market and it seems that nobody can guarantee their card is secure even if it has never been used online.

One of the most widely published leaks was the caching of 19000 credit cards by Google back in March 2009 which was claimed to have been from a gateway but later shown to have come directly from card issuers. For some reason our name got attached to some posts regarding this leak but we cannot fathom why that would be, it is simple enough for us to prove it's nothing to do with us as there are American Express cards in the list and we do not take American Express as a form of payment.

Since then a much larger leak has been reported from a "clearing house" called "Heartland Payment", the details of this seem to have been tightly controlled and no exact numbers have been released but I understand they are used by both Visa and Mastercard and *millions* of cards could have been compromised. On top of this the BBC did a report on how easy it is to purchase credit card details in India, details which have been taken by staff at the call centers out there, call centers which are used by uk phone companies:

http://www.thetechherald.com/article.ph ... -breached-
http://forums.weebls-stuff.com/showthread.php?t=78702

The last link is an example of someone falsely blaming us then actually finding out the real source of the problem - unfortunately this is all too rare and most customers never really know how their card details were leaked. When looking over a credit card statement for "likely suspects" is seems many people will blame us because we are a smaller company however this is a very bad assumption, it is actually the larger companies who have massive call centers where it is easy for someone to remain anonymous and quietly sit in a corner taking down card numbers.

On top of this there are a number of a number of computer viruses (trojans) which are particularly prevalent at the moment that can steal your credit card information from your computer when you enter them into a website. We would suggest all Internet users make sure your virus scanner is up to date and always use a modern browser when shopping online.

From all this it appears if you have not been issued a new credit card in the last few months, you could be at risk of unauthorised transactions even if you have never used the card either online or in person. Regrettably, the only course of action available to credit card holders is to ask your card issuer for a new card, it may be inconvenient but it will not cost you anything and may stop problems in the future.

At ShopTo our focus is very much on the customer and that of protecting them in every way possible, without you we would not exist. If you have read the security sections on our site you will know that we do not store credit card details - they are all stored at our payment gateway "ProTx" (currently changing it's name to "SagePay") and a "repeat transaction" system is used when a purchase is made. Even in the event that someone did manage to illegally gain access our system there are no credit card details for them to take - this is a statement that very few online retailers can make.

We have recently puchased and implemented the highest level SSL secure certificate available - an "Extended Verification Pro" Certificate from VeriSign. This certificate not only offers 256bit transactional security to modern browsers but also forces old browsers to use 128bit transfer when with other certificates they may use 60 or even only 40 bit encryption.

ShopTo acknowledges the frustration and hurt that can be caused when a customers card details are stolen and misused, but at the same time, we do not feel that any of our own systems, software or method of processing orders has led to or assisted in the theft or misuse of any data. Rest assured that ShopTo will always strive to be at the cutting edge of systems that safeguard customers transactional and personal data, whether that be the first or multiple repeat transactions. If anyone reading this has or knows of any evidence that can confirm a problem with our security we would urge them to contact our customer support immediately and pass this information on so we can take steps to rectify it.

We thank all our loyal customers who have been trying to defend us in the forums and thank you all for your continued custom that has made ShopTo the largest independant retailer of computer games in the UK.

Regards,

Dave Fennell

I made a preorder from Shopto a couple of weeks ago. They won't let you preorder unless you have a card stored (I wanted to pay by paypal). So I tried to register my Maestro debit card and it came back with a weird error (something about my card provider not being registered with something or other?) - I've never had any problems shopping with it before, so I tried again - same error..... I ended up registering my visa card which I didn't want to use.

Anyway, when you register a card, Shopto charge £1 to it and then refund it. I found out a few days later when checking my bank that Shopto had taken 2x £1 from my Maestro and not refunded it. (I had been refunded correctly on my visa).

So I rang them, three times in total, and then finally sent them an email before they eventually refunded it. Yeah, I know it's only £2 but appalling customer service and I won't be shopping with them again unless I'm desperate.

I've preordered Uncharted 2 from the Game deal instead........

Been using Shopto for ages now and will continue to do so. They are far and away the best at getting pre-order games to you on time and their prices are usually the lowest around. I have five games on pre-order Drakes Fortune 2 is just one of those.
#17
This deal is bogus as shopto DO NOT offer quico on preorders.

GF had 2 x £30 O2 amounts debited from her CC after her only ever purchase online (at shopto)

I had £44.99 taken out by steamgames.com after using my card at shopto!

Use paypal if you must shop with these shysters! :whistling:

Strange enough, I used shopto.net. Afterwards, my card got charged with 2 X Tesco mobile topups at £20 each, and I had to cancel the card and get a refund from the fraud department of my bank.
