I am just curious and I want to share this all with you guys, in hopes that it doesn’t happen to you.
I am a fairly advanced computer user, I make many transactions online utilizing my Credit/Debit card. I was notified yesterday (March 24, 2010) that someone had fraudulently used my card to make a transaction by way of Thai Airways to buy a Web Ticket to Bangkok for $412.19. Now I have gotten everything under control, I have still no idea where or when this person got a hold of my card number. I figured I would post this because:
A lot of children or minors use this site and it DOES support International users. As such a lot of kids don’t know that things like this can happen.
I doubt the problem originated from this site, but I don’t know anyone in Thailand, or anywhere outside of the US to be completely honest, considering this is the only site that I frequent that houses international users I figure it could be beneficial to notify the community in case some scumbag may have gotten a couple of you guys too by sheer coincidence.
So, if this has happened to you at all, especially recently please post a reply, maybe we can help others.
EDIT: I am in NO WAY implicating YYE as being the origin of this, I am just trying to help people be aware.
