its a website, dont post deal links from it in the forum as it seems to remember your personal details when you do...

That's what I was thinking. The same happens with DSG sites as far as your cart is concerned. Can't see how they actually managed to buy the items though unless the postdata contains your login as well, very **** website if it does and definitely one to avoid:thinking:

How much credit do you have that allows someone to order 100k worth of goods?

well i dont...that's why it didnt get charged i think...i don't know really.

yes it is a pants website and i have warned them about this too...

i think it was through my gmail account...not sure....changed all my passwords now and stuff so it's okay, just very annoying.

2 members contacted me about it so i have no reason to believe theyre lying and that someone was messing about with it, although maybe not 100k lol....

The problem was that the URL contained session and user identification information which looks something like this:

http: // www. anywhere.co.uk.net.com.html? csid=abc123xyz345def678

Always remember to log out of your account before linking to another website that has your personal info on it.
Good that you've reported it to Qfonic too ryoooh

Have they told you when my delivery will be yet? :whistling:



Just kidding, its a scary thought that your account was available to view just through that! Its certainly made me think!
