Card details stolen

My brother checked his Lloyds account this morning and noticed two debits that were nothing to do with him, both for airlines? called Lloyds to report it and they have cancelled his card and sending him a form to sign and they will credit his account and issue a new card next week,

I posted here a couple of weeks ago about shopto having their computers hacked and 15,000 customers card details were stolen, he hardly ever uses his card (he's more of a cash in his wallet person, shields his hand over his card when using cashpoints and never pays for anything out and about with his card) and the only recent online company he's used in the past 3 week is shopto, so any one out there who has used them should check there accounts just to be sure everything is ok,

I posted it here i think it was 2 weeks ago, they released a statement on their website about it, this was part of it:

"Details are very sketchy at the moment but it seems that the ShopTo security certificate weakness may not be related to the leak of 19,000 credit card numbers. However, if you are in any way unsure about the security of your details, contact your bank or card issuer to take the appropriate action"

Neither myself or my brother have had a problem with them, been using them for a while now, its just two things in two weeks, maybe just an isolated problem

I had to check who Shopto were to make sure that I'd never bought anything from them, and I was quite relieved to see that they seem to deal mostly in software sales. Good thing that I'm a pirate and that I download all of my games, could've been costly for me otherwise.

My card details were stolen a few weeks ago ; my bank were on the ball and called me to ask if i had just made an internet transaction to Littlewoods Home Shopping for £1200 - as it was not the pattern of my usual spends was flagged up (also cause i didnt have £1200!!). When i told them i would call them back to confirm it was not me, they stopped my card there and then, its a horrible feeling, i am meticulous about firewalls etc etc but it could have been from anywhere.....;-)

They just emailed me saying they don't keep details on file, etc etc...

Message sent to you follows:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At ShopTo we consider your security to be of the highest priority and for
this reason we've several measures to ensure your card details are not at
risk. With the systems we have in place we consider ourselves to be the
most secure gaming store on the Internet and you can shop safe in the
knowledge your experience with us will be a protected one.


Repeat Transaction - We don't store your card details

Normally when you shop online you will store your card details with a
retailer. The retailer will then for each order pass these details onto
their payment gateway, which will in turn send the details to the bank to
take payment. With our Repeat Transaction system we will only send your
details to our payment gateway (SagePay) one time. For all other
transactions thereafter we will simply send SagePay a request to repeat the
initial transaction with the required total of your new order.

By doing this it means we do not need to store your card details on file
and none of your details will need to be sent over repeatedly to our
payment gateway. The only thing well pass over is the transaction reference
number from your previous purchase, eliminating the possibility of any
details falling into the wrong hands in the improbable event they could be
intercepted between us and our payment gateway.

For your own personal reference we will store the last 4 digits of your
card and your expiry date on your account so you are aware of which card
you previously used and will be used for your next order.

FAQ:
Q. I'm a new customer and wish to make a pre-order, how will you repeat my
transaction if I've never made an initial payment?
A. When you first store your card details it will make a £1 test payment
(which is refunded immediately) to verify your card details are correct.
This is the transaction we will repeat to charge you for your pre-order.

Q. I've got a new card, will you still be able to repeat my previous
transactions?
A. Just like with new customers when you submit your new card details for
the first time it will make a test transaction, this is the transaction we
will repeat when taking your payment.

Q. My card details are still on file, I thought you were no longer storing
them?
A. We are phasing out the storage of all credit card details but those
accounts with existing pre-orders on them will not have their details
removed immediately.


Security Question

To change important account details such as your e-mail address and
delivery address you need to answer a security question. This prevents
details being changed against your will in the event someone you didn't
authorise was to gain access to your account.

If for example you were to click the change delivery address button to have
an item sent elsewhere, on this page you would have to confirm the answer
to your security question to authorise the change. You would then also
receive an e-mail confirming it.

The security question is set when registering a new account, for customers
who registered before the security question was introduced you'll be
prompted to set your security question when you attempt to change some of
you account details. Before its confirmed you will receive an e-mail
containing a link that you'll need to click to confirm the request to set
the security question.

FAQ:
Q. I've forgotten the answer to my security question; can you send it to
me?
A. Your answer to the security question is encrypted in our database, so we
cannot tell you what the answer is - Please contact us for assistance with
getting it reset.

Q. I've not received my e-mail to confirm the change, what do I do?
A. First of all be sure to check your junk e-mail folder in case it has
ended up in there by accident. Failing that please make another request to
change the details and a new e-mail will be sent.

Q. I've no longer got access to my e-mail address on file so cannot receive
the confirmation e-mail to change it! What can I do?
A. Please contact our customer service team who will be able to go through
a security check with you to manually reset your e-mail address.
3D Authentication - Verified by Visa / Mastercard Securecode

For all high value orders we require a card that is signed up to Verified
by Visa or Mastercard Securecode. This system is something you will need to
sign up to with your bank directly.

The way this system works is you'll prompted for a password by your bank
when checking your item out. You will choose the password when signing-up
so its completely personal to you. This means if your card details were to
fall into the wrong hands they would not be able to buy items from our
store without knowing your personal password.

FAQ:
Q. My card does not support Verified by Visa or Mastercard Securecode, can
I still purchase from you with this card?
A. While you will still be able to purchase low value items unfortunately
you will not be able to purchase large value items with this card and will
need to use another.
