    Egg .com Fraud !!!!!

    Had my Egg card blocked by Egg for some transactions that were actually o.k.
    They had sent me a message ... We will unblock your account when you confirm these transactions. At the time I thought well I use my other credit card more so I will leave it and cancell later.
    Checked my account today and they have let 2 transactions go through 1 I know about but the other is from a Ricarica da 155 milano It, which I have never heard of !
    I rang and Informed them and this has been passed to their fraud dept.
    But why did my account get unblocked when I did not confirm the earlier payments ?
    Advise to anyone getting an account with these guy's ...DON'T.
    They have tryed fobbing me off with excuses why the account is now active, but obviosly I am well miffed ( not allowed to swear)
    The fraud payment is an Italian tellicoms or some such, did a search on google.
    Be aware guy's this getting more and more common

    2 guy's at work had money taken from their account via the cash m/c scam and 1 guy lost money via the paypal scam.
    I have saved the message from Egg telling me my account was blocked so will just wait and see.

    I can see you are no expert.
    I had the message from egg on the 3 apr, saying my account was blocked, the fraud came out of my account on the 29 apr. If the account was blocked why would I need to check it every day?
    When I checked the account today by the off chance It was then I noticed the fraud.

    I have just found out that I've had two fraudulent transactions go through on my Sky Card account on 29 apr too - both labelled up as RICARICA DA 155. One is for 100 Euros, and the other for 50 Euros.

    I've only used the card once in the last 4/5 months, and that was in mid-April to purchase some films from CD Wow.

    Got it sorted at long last.
    This is a common fraud, I am thinking this has something to do with shopto.net.
    They have been hacked a few times and they had my details, can't prove it though.
