Just a short post to make you aware of a savings card scam my wife and I were a victim of recently.
We live in Aussie, don't use credit but have a savings card into which our earnings are deposited and pay by that card for bills, etc..
Just did my Monday morning check of the account and found that small amounts have been debitted to the account the last 4 days. (over the weekend)
Amounts ranging from 20 to 50 dollars. A check of the company accessing the card revealed - "ORDER.WISH.COM" SAN FRANCISCO CA 0301. Maybe our
american friends can help me out with that one.
Anyway, straight to the bank, had the card cancelled and will have to wait until the payments are investigated - about 5 to 6 weeks before any
payments can be recreditted to the account.
In saying all that we are very careful with our respective cards and I guess now anyone can fall victim to a scam like this where it appears the card
was hacked. Funny that this particular card was not used to purchase on line at any time. I wonder how many others were hit or perhaps will be
I will probably check my account more frequently now down to the smallest withdrawal. The dirtbags have ripped us off and I'm glad I checked the
account when I did else it could have been worse.
Cheers' beers and watch you transactions,
