1 IL, United States Review updated:

This company allowed multiple charges to be falsely made to my credit card. They mailed items to an address other than on my account and refused to give any information about the order. Other vendors (i.e. Target, LL Bean, etc) caught the fraudulent charges, refused to send the items and contacted me. I feel Abercrombie is negligent in allowing this activity to occur. Their utter disregard to prevent fraud and poor screening system allows this type of activity. Their irresponsible attention to fraudulent activity is part and parcel of the fraudulent charges. Criminals can only committ these types of crimes if the vendor allows them to. Obviously, Abercrombie is more interested in making a sale and could care less if it is done fraudulently. Other company's, like those I listed above, caught the discrepancies with the orders and prevented the transaction.

    I don't know if this will help but I have covered/scratched off the numbers on the back underneath the magnetic strip. If you have ordered online, you will know that those three numbers on the back (in addition to the front numers and expiration date) are pretty much all you need to complete a transaction. If you hand a card to someone that is cashing you out all they need to do is what is called skimming (illegally copying credit cards with a swipe device). Even a cell phone with a camera that will discreetly take a picture of your credit card. It doesn't take much. You can also contact one of the three major credit reporting agencies and add a fraud alert to your report. This will prevent additional credit being granted to anyone that may have got access to your identity. Mainly your social security number. You are entitled to one free report every year from each of the three of the major credit reporting agencies. These reports will tell you if there has been any attempts to open additional credit and flag any unauthorized purchases that you did not make. Hope this helps.
