I was informed by Ebuyer today that my credit card payment was declined, so I phoned my credit card company and asked what's going on.
They told me that a attempted purchase of an airline ticket on Monday 5th had been blocked and so my card had been suspended pending verification of this transaction.
They also queried another payment on Monday 5th for another airline ticket (but this one went through)!
I did not make either purchase!
Now I rarely use my credit card (not even to withdraw money - it's not my bank's credit card), and the only transactions I have since January have been with Scan Computers (2nd Feb) and Amazon (27th Feb).
I wondered if anyone else has recently been a victim of credit card fraud and placed an order with Scan Computers or perhaps more importantly Amazon?
I imagine it's likely the card would be used for fraudulent transactions soon after the card details were discovered, this would surely arouse suspicion of Amazon!
