Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

stolen identity

i know its been posted before and me saying that it has will result in some of you asking why i decided to make a new thread regarding the issue. however, i made a purchase from pbk about a month ago and now have 4 new transactions in my name using my card for random things.

just want everyone to be aware when making a purchase from this website. i love pbk and have nothing against them, i just wanted to make the issue known for the 1000th time.

Holy crap!

Do a search man, read the paper, watch the news...It is not PBK or Ribble or any other online vendor...It is the processing centre that they use...There was a security breach! It had nothing to do with the vendors...

Contact your CC and they will reverse the charges, pretty simple...

For the 1000th time use a one time use CC number! PayPal has 'em and you could get one from your CC issuer.

Stolen CC number is not the same as a stolen identity.

Wrong answer. The FIRST time this stuff happens, it's the processing center. But the fact that they CONTINUE to use this processor, despite REPEATED issues makes it their problem.

Two wrongs don't make a right, but you need to have a second look...

The OP said he made a purchase from PBK about a month ago...So I can surmise that his card info got nabbed at the same time as all the others and it took a little while longer for them to start using his card...Simple as that!

They don't get your info and use it the next day, they wait...They sell it to others and they wait...Then when you least expect it they charge away...

Had my debit info nabbed a while back, did I use my card online...No...I use it mainly at bank's ATM machines and make about 4-5 purchase a week using it. One day I just happened to pick the wrong store and they got the card info and PIN...Who knows when it happened?? I noticed because I had two withdrawals for $500 from my bank account. I didn't panic, I did get pissed, but I called the bank. The card was suspended and I was issued a new one that day. I transfered money from my savings account to cover the debit and within 7 days then bank had returned my money.

No harm no foul...

No I make sure to keep a close eye on all my accounts for odd activity and I changed my PIN numbers on a regular basis...

Face it, there is no full proof way to protect yourself...Well maybe there is, toss the plastic and only use cash...But, come on now what fun is that

Your sort of missing my point. I ran my own business for a while and I can guarantee you that something like this would happen to one of my customers ONCE. Because as soon as it happened the first time, I'd have been all over my CC processing company to fix it - and I don't mean just making it right for my customer, but also to prevent it from happening again. And if it did happen again, I switch to a different processing company.

If you look on this forum there have been multiple threads regarding problems with PBX that have happened repeated over a significant period of time. It seems they've done nothing to fix the problem as it keeps happening. Which makes me believe that, quite frankly, they don't give a sh**. Great customer service there . Pity they're not in the US, cause if they were, you could almost guarantee a couple of lawsuits, but it's hard to press legal action oversees.

Unless PBK was the ONLY place the card has been used you can not blame them could of happened anywhere.
