Credit/debit card Scam

Guys, this has happened to me from my halifax current account so please read the link below... I didnt order anything from the company that the author is referring to but its clearly a scam on the rise so please check your bank accounts just in case.

http://www.bootblock.co.uk/home/2010/01/29/credit-card-scam-lenovo/

The transaction appeared on my account as:
O2UK (Nelson) 01753 565969 £30

Apparently the scammers take a small amount as a test (hoping it will go unoticed) before going for the jugular. It's very frustrating as I've had to cancel my card, fill in a fraud form and have a new card issued.

Just be aware...

Makes you wonder how they get your card details - I've been trying to think if I can recall anything suspicious over the past few weeks but I'm at a loss!

Have you ever used the card to buy something online?
Have you ever used the card at a restaurant where they take the card away to process?

will keep a look out aswell, when I topped up £10 on o2 it says CARD PAYMENT TO O2UK (NELSON),10.00 GBP so should be fine, as dont have the phone number in the transaction details like the one above.

Not bought anything online for ages or allowed anyone to take my card from my sight. I've never used shopto either. I guess these scammers find ways and means. As the article says, it could be random number allocation but who knows?!

i had £60 taken out of my account buying 02 vouchers a few weeks ago and they then tried to buy something for £300 which my bank picked up on and cancelled it.

I got my money back off the bank straight away

I had only used my card online at amazon.co.uk

A lot of companies keep your CC details on file,you have to go in manually and delete them each time you use it,Amazon is one company who do this and so do M&S amongst others.

I don't think it's a good idea so now i always go back and delete the details as i've had O2 top ups crop up on my card fraudulently too:x

Mines most definately was not - I don't have a pay and go phone therefore I never need to buy top ups.

I got this a while back but the bank (halifax) stopped it and called me to see if it was a genuine transaction, obviously i said no and they said they would look into it, never heard anything since and all they done was send me out a new card and only one of the digits on the card number were different!

I also had my credit card compromised... not going to bother calling the bank or the police though .














The thief is spending a lot less than the wife does.

Hi
Its not a scam but BOS Halifax have chnged the way they show a payment to o2 on your bank statements, it showed up on my statement but as I had spent money topping up and it was the same amount I enquired before hitting the panic button and found out that it was genuine most of you should know if you have topped up or spent anything with o2 I.m surprised nobody else sussed it tallied up with their spending.

I just noticed 3 x £10 taken from my Halifax bank account to O2 UK PAY & GO CD 3633
I don't even have an O2 phone.. Bank has blocked and replaced my card and refunded mu account.
I have no idea how anyone has got my bank details... BUT i use Amazon which stores them. I also used a Holliday Inn recently who also take bank details. The scam happened 1 day after i was in hotel in Slough. May be a coincidence but no one else has my details.
#19
I haven't noticed this again since it happened to me but at least the banks are refunding the fraud amounts. It's just the inconvenience of having to replace your card etc.
#20
Yep just happened to me. Someone attempted a £20 top up - merchant O2 UK Nelson. Luckily Credit Card company was on the ball and checked if it was genuine. Just the ball ache of having the card cancelled and new one sent out, so it's still happening
