Ordered something from CD wow this morning, and just received a phone call from the bank saying they suspected account fraud. They confirmed details etc so we know it was definitely the bank (and didnt give them any details just in case!)
They said that there were 2 payments taken from abroad and told me the amounts. Realised that it was from CD wow and said they were ok. They then said that there was later £1 taken for apple itunes - which we dont even have an account with. They said that they often find that people using someone elses details will make a £1 purchase to test it out before using it more.
Account has been blocked and a new card is being sent out
Would steer clear of CD wow in future as this is the only place we have used that we havent previously (always use big name companies and never had a problem before) and now it looks as though the details have been stolen.
Well done Halifax for being so on the ball about this!
