Was it not a Chinese fella?

Way ahead of that shit. Called and cancelled the order (which has been caught by their fraud detection), then called and cancelled card (I've also been screwed for an order from some Drinks company in Alabama ofc), then changed all my passwords, gathered an Acer laptop box, shat in it, then sent it to Tottenham.

Neine. I believe it was Saudi Arabian Telecoms or something like that. Tried to take £250 in £20's in the space of 3 hours. Daft sod.

Indeed, you can't make £250 out of £20's

Some tool tried to use my card, tried to deposit £500 in to a betfair account, stupid idiot.

 

Someone cloned my boss's card and spent a shitload on it, he got it all back like with the added bonus that they'd done the same as what happened to you and had then won a load of money which was credited back to his card! :lol:

If you really did that it's class.

 

Except a criminal gang now has your personal information and is on the way to do you.... maybe.

 

I haven't, but I really would like to do something.

 

My dad bought an Acer laptop a few months ago, I've got an Acer box, so it really is a consideration.

 

Do gangsters have DNA machine things?

Run a full antivirus & spyware scan on your PC for starters, to complete that order someone has either been able to access your Tesco.com account and place an order with a saved card number or they've got hold of your card security information.

 

Contact your bank asap to get a new card issued & change any passwords for important websites (banks & anywhere with saved card details).

I've changed passwords for everything I can think of. The only way I can think this jerkhead has bought this thing is either they've got some ins with Tesco Direct, or they've got my password through hacky means. I wouldn't imagine it'd be from my home setup though, perhaps a random PC that I've been on.

 

I've got a Mac. I'll have to find some form of searcher to look for Spyware-esque crud.

There aren't too many pieces of malware out there on OS X, but there are some trojans. Here's a free antivirus programme for OS X if you want to be sure.

Cheers. I've got 2 other apps scanning right now, I'll go for a third too!

Sticking hundreds of pounds in betting sites is a classic technique for a card fraudster. Hard to reclaim once it's there, and easy to move to another account.

Someone used my Barclaycard to book flights on a European airline once. Thankfully I noticed it when it was in the 'pending transaction' stage when I looked online, and got it sorted very quickly. I'd just come back a few weeks before from Amsterdam and Prague and the hotel in Amsterdam was a bit suspect, and I'd used the card there. Just pleased I got a refund quickly, it was £500+ so I was cacking myself at first.
