    has the website not done a check on the route source n ip that accessed ur account ?

    This (almost!) happened to me with my credit card. Fortunately the card company blocked the transactions as suspicious & then rang me to ask if it was really me. The only transaction to actually get through was the original gambling site registration fee, but this was refunded immediately.

    I've been phoned a few times by the card company to check transactions are pukka, fortunately for me as I could have been stung for a lot of money this time!

    i dont have an account with the company/website they have used my bank account to fund the payments. the company/website have asked me to inform the police and that they would give them all the information that they have. ip address used etc.

    DON'T EVEN BOTHER contacting the police, go into your bank and make them fill out a fraud form in front of you, sign it and get a copy. This is then passed to the police for them to act on. This is the only way it is done, if you don't, you will end up fighting the bank like I have done for (7) years (but that is about to come to a head shortly).

    i went to the bank yesterday CAN YOU BELIEVE they didn't even want to cancel the card that has been used and re-issue me with another,
    so i said what is going to stop this happening again and are you going to give me the money for my mortgage that comes out tomorrow and give me the money to buy the things i need for my 6month old child, with that the very STUPID lady in the bank went to cancle my card and order me another.
    she did however tell me it would be ok if it happened again as all i would have to do is inform the bank again (WHAT).

    Ring up their CS and ask them why you can't complete a police fraud form in the bank, you have nothing to hide if the police want to verify that you did not use the money. They are being lazy and there must be some other rerason why they don't want this sort of thing logged against this branch, the mind boggles.

    Good for you getting a new card, even if she would not do it, you could always break your card in front of her and request a new one there & then, and that would give you a new issue number as well. :giggle:
