I know most of you guys are too cool for Walmart, but this was the first time I recall actually being hacked to involve money.
I checked my email this morning, and Walmart was thanking me for my order for some CD/DVD sleeves and 2 $50 gift cards. Yeah, I'm sure I'm losing it mentally but not so much that I'd forget online purchases there. I looked at the cc # and it's one that only I'd ever use, not someone else in my family. Then I tried to log in to my Walmart account and it was no go. Finally, I called Walmart's customer service and they eliminated the purchase, which had already been flagged for further enquiry, and closed the account. My email for the account had been changed to some ip in Munich.
Apparently this is a thing, who knew? Matlock never once addressed the issue afaik.
Anyway, my story's boring. I bet you've got a better one involving hacking and your accounts...
My wife's PayPal got hacked by someone in Mexico. Instead of even a moderate amount, they just made up like 5 or 6 transactions of like 15 pesos. What a waste. It was like when someone broke in my car for some loose change.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
Maybe checking it out initially to see if it was even active? Then hit it for muchos pesos?
You're right, I'm too cool for Walmart.
classlessthug: I have too much on my plate to worry about the fact that my junk intimidates some needle D undergrad.
There's being too cool for Walmart, then there's a level of coolness above that where you're so cool that you go to Walmart and laugh at the freaks. It's like going on safari.
Around Christmas my credit card also got hacked shortly after a trip to wal mart.
I went to Walmart in Glen Burnie last week because I knew they would have NASCAR gear. I was correct.
Should have gone to the one in Dundalk. It's perfect.
I pretty much roll everything north of Severna Park into Dundalk. Dena, Glen Burnie, Brooklyn Park, Curtis Bay, etc
this thread is worthless w/o pics:
I think I talked about it here when it happened, but I had my amazon account hacked.
The worst part was that I recently had bought some stuff for my boss (He's old and Amazon was over his head) and the card they used to purchase with was his credit card. I got the email from amazon that the email associated with my account had been changed. I then found that this person had bought a laptop from a user in their marketplace and that it was being shipped to my address. I was able to cancel the purchase and change all my passwords and stuff. The seller account was also pretty sketchy, so I imagine they were the same person and selling an imaginary laptop.
I don't know what you mean, but it had the cadence of a joke.
My debit card got hacked a couple years ago, I don't remember using it for anything sketchy leading up to that so I don't know how, but I got a call from my bank asking if I'd spent $300 at a Target in California that day.
Yeah, I don't understand how they were going to make money - the shipping address was my house. Wouldn't I end up with some crap I didn't want? Were they going to stake out my mailbox?
No, nobody EVER steals shipments to other people's houses. That would require people to put some kind of surveillance system by their door to try to catch the thieves, and who's got time for that?

On the other end of the spectrum, I got a call from a customer last Monday angrily asserting that his MasterCard had been used for "unauthorized charges" following a visit to my restaurant. He knows it was us because he has not used his card again since visiting, but there are these charges in Oregon now. He wants to know what he can do and asks if he can walk with the server to the payment terminal and watch him swipe his card because he likes our restaurant yet knows we have shady staff.
After apologizing profusely, I ask him to help me find out who his server was so I can deal with it appropriately and also help him. He doesn't have much info - he was in the previous Thursday or Friday, didn't remember his server, etc. All he could really tell me was where he was sitting, but obviously dozens of people sat there between Thursday and Friday so that's only so useful to me. Eventually, I get the last 4 digits of his CC and start searching for checks from Thursday. Nothing.
On to Friday. Nothing. Hmmm. I do the previous week's Thursday and Friday. Wednesday. Saturday. Every damn day for two weeks.
I go back to our reservation books use his phone number to find out he had made a reservation for the Sunday a week before he called me. And sure enough, the spot he described to me was where he was seated that evening. Using this, I go through our physical collection of CC receipts from Sunday night. I find the check I believe to be his, and sure enough there's his name and signature. Except this card is a VISA and ends in 4 different numbers from the number I'm looking for.
So I call him back and confirm this was the meal in question - he did have the wine and entrees, so yes, this is the correct visit. Oh my, I'm so sorry, he tells me after I explain that I have a different card than the one he told me had been misused. What a feeling of relief to not have been responsible for his misfortune, yet all I can think about is having lost my morning.

What moron would assume that the last business they patronized would be the source of their credit card fraud? The card info could have been stolen days before.
What can he do? He can dispute the charges through his credit card company like a normal person.

Not a hacked story but an attempted rip off none the less.
After checking out at the local white trash grocery store (Save A Lot) I had an urge to check the receipt as it seemed high for the few groceries we had purchased. Turns out the last charge was for a $10 gift card we had not purchased. I went back in and showed to receipt to our fat, smelly, cashier who had no idea how the gc was added to my total. She promptly refunded my $10 while pleading ignorance. We see/smell her every Sunday as we always shop on her shift so now we have one more reason to feel uncomfortable going through her line.
Unless JoeSmith dv'd this post, I'm hornswoggled.
There are those who are too cool for walmart and then I guess there are those who have online walmart accounts.
These ripoffs are small potatoes. If you really want to get taken to the cleaners, get braces for your kids.
I had another instance where my card was used at a CVS in NC. According to the credit card statement the card was present at the transaction despite being in my wallet in MD the entire time. Credit Card company had the charges reversed in a few minutes, but the CVS didn't seem to care that one of their employees was ringing up a bunch with a stolen credit card number and making it appear as though it was there in person.
