CREDIT CARD FRAUD WARNING

CREDIT CARD FRAUD WARNING
I have been tracking illegal and fraudulent activies on my credit card (which I use to accept payments from paypal) for a week.

I have been wrongfully charged over $500 on seperate seemingly random charges from both US and Indian compaines (as well as a Swiss Clearning Account) since June 24th.

I have notified the fraud squad at visa/my bank.

I only deal with reputable companies, so be warned! I would rather not say which one I am suspecting until I know for sure, but I'll give you one guess.




FOR MY CUSTOMERS:

I will not be able to accept payment until I can get a replacement method of payment setup (I am looking at 1-2 weeks for this to happen).

In the mean time if you wish to buy one of my plug-ins, contact me and I will arrange something.




Thanks very much.

MY CUSTOMERS (UPDATE):

I have enough protection and assurances now to continue to accept payments in the normal fashion. (I just can't collect the payments). But if you wish to buy a plug-in, then you can continue to pay - safely -by normal means. If you have any questions, just message me.

Thanks

That is pretty rotton of Paypal! They should not have charged you.

I actually phoned them up yesterday to try and straighten a few things out.

Sorry to here you were a victim also!

Now you see why I stopped development for Paypal.

Also, ebay is buying paypal, which means even more problems, since ebay is more arbitrary than any other company out there, and I wonder how they will adapt to the strong federal banking regulations??

The cost of doing your own payment processing in Canada is obscene to say the least. The alternatives are few, and costly.

I see a market opening up for a pay-pal competitor here, especially in light of the ebay aquisition.

Watch what Yahoo! does relative to payment processing. Whoever they go with will be the next payment beast on the net.

How did you get defrauded? Is there any way to combat it?

From what I understand, someone: pays for a product; collects that product; disappears; actually paid for the aforementioned product with a stolen card, which means that you lose money. Is this what happens?
