I have had multiple unauthorized charges on my credit card in the last weeks totaling over $800.00. The bank is claiming that the card has not been compromised and is insisting the charges need to be disputed. It appears that accounts have been set up with this credit card for the following companies:
Wallet8004717182 - RENO
[protected] SUB00 OF 00
While I am fully aware that many of these are legit businesses (such as paypal and yahoo wallet), accounts with them have never been set up with this card. The bank said that sometimes online software companies will have hidden agreements. Just prior to the appearance of these illegitimate charges I made two software purchases online: DiskWarrior and FastTrack from ALSOFT and AEC Software.
Could these companies have given my account information out? Needless to say it has resulted in hours of time on the phone, much frustration, and even when I am able to have the money refunded I loose on the exchange rate (I am in Canada and these charges are being made from the States).
