they charged $9.84 to my card, I have no clue who they are. 
 
called the number 855 531 1090 on their doo-dee web page and they wanted more of my personal info that I would not give. They would not give me any info on what they do other than to say they take money from the internet. sounded like a large call center and the person I spoke with was being coached when I started pushing her.
 
 
not sure if you guys have had the same thing?  bank card is cancelled and a new one should be here in a few days.
 
 
now to figure out what I had that number attached to.  :banghead:

You should also report the charge as fraud, if you didn't already.

 

I've also learned that there are two types of card payments, one time charges and "subscription payments" which may be honored against your account even after you change your card number. You need to ask the bank about the "subscription payments" separately if you request they cancel the card / reissue you a new one.

Target is a great a example of what can happen during a major data security breach and the cost to a business unit as well as loss of confidence by the consumer. I am using this as an example here at work on the importance of data security. I would be interested to know HOW the perps gained access to such a large pool of data. Must have been a central server somewhere.....but the interesting part is this only happened with scanned cards received at the actual store, none of the online transactions were compromised.

Couple of possibilities....

 

If the corporate network is breached the hackers can get at the central database these big chains keep on all the customers.

 

Another approach is possible cause the store's registers are networked into the corporate HQ systems. The hackers have figured out how to break into the corporate network and infect the point of sale terminals so that they can capture the card data directly from the card readers / registers and transfer the data to servers controlled by the thieves.

 

This is not uncommon... Happens a lot and I've read stories about it several times.

Most of it is covered under PCI compliance. Target can be hit with a $10k fine for every instance of a card being used elsewhere due to a breach in their system. That will add up.


Scott, you should have someone on staff who is familiar with PCI compliance, if not, that is something that should be addressed asap.

There are tiers within pci compliance, based on transaction volume that dictate what steps need to be taken.

Apparently the card data stolen from Target has been found for sale by multiple sources...

I vote porn!

 

However, I've had my card compromised twice. Both times they pulled a small amount initially, then dumped the account a week later.
