This morning, I tried to make an online purchase, only to have my card declined. I checked my account and all looked well, so I tried the transaction
again and got the same results. I called customer service about my account and was told that my account is in good standing and there was no problem
on my end, but there is a "known problem" with Master Card today that they were working to resolve. The customer service rep couldn't give me an
estimated time in which everything would be functional again, but I was told it should be "soon."
I checked around with a few people I know and one of my friends who works in a small town bank told me the bank employees had been informed that
Master Card had been hacked and many people had fraudulent charges on their accounts and many who used their debit cards to pay their Master Card bill
had funds missing from their checking accounts. I haven't had that problem myself *knock on wood* but I was wondering if anyone else in here is
Honestly, if this was a major problem, I would expect it to be plastered all over ATS right now, but I haven't seen it. People tend to get freaked
out about not being able to access their money, so this must not be widespread.
So, the point of this post... Anybody else had problems? Sorry I don't have any links or info to link to. I'm just going by what I heard. I
haven't tried to use my card since earlier today so I'm not sure if my card is functional again or not. I did a few online searches and couldn't
come up with anything. Can anyone confirm that Master Card isn't working?
