    I'm so annoyed!!

    just checked my bank account online & there were 2 payments of £15 each that went out of my bank account on 25th to O2(UK) prepay & i'm with virgin!!! Phoned my bank & they are doing a fraud case now on those transactions & have to wait 7-10 days to get my money back!!
    thought i'd be careful & transfer the rest of my money into our joint account but accidentally transfered it into my son's savers account which isn't showing the money i transfered available :$ so not a good day here :-(

    Those pesky O2 scammers got £30 out of my account too.



    And me:x

    I think it was something to do with buying online from the Carphone Warehouse at the time:w00t:

    This happened to me too a few months ago but I had 2 x £30 taken out! I had to wait almost a month to get my money back!

    My Barclaycard was used a few times over the weekend. Barclaycard picked up that they were false transactions and didnt allow them to the account. They've cancelled the card and are sending a replacement... God knows how someone got the long number off the front but they didnt have the pin at least.

    i ordered an out of stock bluetooth kit ages ago & was sent an email saying as soon as they had stock they would send but have never received or been charged for it so they would have my details from that :?

    I have been scammed a couple of times.

    A card was cloned once from a petrol station.

    The best was last year when some person bought a return flight from Spain to Italy.

    I noticed just after the first flight was taken. The return ticket was then cancelled.

    Imagine the look on their face when they went to check in after their 2 week holiday.

    O2 are well known to be an easy hit for card cloners. my daughter was hit twice on 2 different cards

    This is interesting.... I have recently ordered over the phone with carphone warehouse. Last week my bank called to ask about some suspicious transactions to T Mobile. Never used them, always been with o2. Pesky theives!!! Is all the more annoying because it was about 50 quid for phone top ups, I mean what flipping use is that in the world? Maybe they needed the credit to talk with the other crooks out there???

    My credit card was hit for a £30 Vodaphone top up the 1st day then £700 for Eurocar the 2nd day but luckily my bank stopped all transactions on the card.

    well after reading all of this thread i'm glad i've transferred the rest of my money into my other account for now

    What was worse at the the time,Halifax were supposed to have cancelled said CC and they didn't and i hadn't realised,a week or so later another o2 top up appeared on my online banking:x

    One £30 and one £50 on 02 for me, then £20 and £20 on vodaphone. Grrr

    thanks andy :thumbsup: would be interesting to know how many others have had this happen to them as well

    I had £80 taken out of my bank account a few months back, via £30/£30/£20 increments for O2 and Vodafone top ups. Got the money back straight away thankfully, maybe it was via a Shopto connection, or maybe having an O2 contract - as their are rumours about O2.

    Anyway, went to log in to my eBay account on Sunday and I couldn't access it, someone had hacked into my eBay account and changed the password. Then they listed 2 lots of nearly £850-£900 in supermarket vouchers(Asda/Sainsburys).... then logged into my Paypal account to find that was also hacked and a third party was trying to use it to send themselves the money.

    Regained control of both accounts, eBay deleted the 2 fraudulent listings(and £85 fees!) and Paypal are reviewing my account as per my request that they take the £850 back(one was thankfuly reversed by the buyer).

    I'm near paranoid about it happening again - every time I log in to my bank account/eBay/Paypal:-(
