Won’t go into into great detail here, but yesterday, after just paying off the small amount outstanding on my credit card, I had reason to check my account late last night, and found that the credit card had been ’emptied’, by two fraudulent transactions, exactly the same amount as each other, that took my ’empty’ card over the credit limit. I don’t know if this is related to the current Ebay disaster, which company, I understand, was hacked recently:
It’s such a pain to have a card ‘compromised’: ebay’s hackers, if you read the article above, accessed a database containing encrypted passwords and other data after obtaining a small number of employee log-in credentials, the firm disclosed.
The other data included:
- email addresses
- physical addresses
- phone numbers
- dates of birth
So, beware everyone! It’s a bummer as I was going to buy my ticket to Colombia in the next 24-48 hours: that trip is only 6 weeks away. I’d really appreciate your prayer for the team going with me, too, as I was pretty sure that the enemy wasn’t going to like this trip, and that seems to be the case!
