    ShopNeo - Can't find them on the HUKD site any more ?

    Was going to make a comment about ShopNeo but can't find them on the HUKD site anymore.

    Why's that?

    Anyway, beware, when you register at their site they send an email out containing all your details including user name & password!

    CREDIT CARD JUST BEEN DONE - SHOPNEO SOURCE

    Just had one of my credit cards bumped by someone using it at an online Casino.

    Already reported this to Card Company & Police.

    Done a spreadsheet of places it had been used and looked at the details that had been used at online Casino and suspected Shopneo as the source.
    Passed this info. on to Card Company & Police.

    Got a letter from Shopneo today (no date, no signature) admitting that some of their customers have had illegal transactions processed through their credit cards.
    No exploanation why.

    Best thing to do is to stay clear of this company I think.

    omg thats awful! hope it all gets sorted

    Over on MSE forum it seems dozens of people have been done - 9 pages on the particular thread. I personally know of two close friends who've had money taken / cards cloned. I've also cancelled my credit card I used with them a couple of weeks ago just in case which is the advice for anyone who's shopped with them in the last 3 months or so. Some people had amounts of over a £1000 taken from their cards - also debit cards too. It also seems from some posters that addresses, dates of birth and telephone numbers were taken too which obviously leads on to ID theft possibilities for those affected


    So just to re-itrerate, even if you haven't got any fraudulent transactions right now, but you've shopped at shopneo in the last few months, then CANCEL your card now.

    Not sure of the rules on posting the link to the original thread at MoneySavingExpert but if anyone wants it I can PM them it (or post it here if it's allowed)

    It's been mentioned in another thread tef89, and posting links to MSE is fine, not against forum rules

    Are ShopNeo banned from posting on here?
    I wonder why he's not been back if he ain't banned.

    I think he hasn't responded in any forums in the last while. We are currently not allowing deals from shopneo.

    OK, Thanks Emma.

    I think Paypal is a Paypal option, that should be safe and secure. Strange.




    Edit
    Yes Paypal is an option and that seems like a secure option.

    Are shopto.net and shopneo the same company? I believe both deals for both sites are prohibited on HDUK or do they just have similar names?

    No they are not the same company.
    I don't think they have been banned. I've seen them mentioned on here.

    ShopTo deals are banned too I believe.

    Avoid them like the plague is the simple answer.

    When I spoke to them about sending out my registration details (username & password) in an email the guy just said "but we don't send any credit card information."

    I said yes but anyone could use the login details to get into my account and see all my contact details including date of birth!

    It was someone on a Virgin Cable account IP Address that used my card and ShopNeo are in a Virgin available area.

    Since when?

    Since when?



    Since a lot of newly registered members were posting multiple deals advertising the Shopto.net site. We've removed all deal posts.

    K the link to the thread on MSE :
