Ewc Payments Pty Ltd. Donvale Auau - Credit Card FraudOn December 27th I logged into the Best Buy web site to make a purchase. I entered my VISA gift card information and clicked submit.
The purchase was declined as it was more than the amount on the card which I knew, but was hoping to be able to use 2 sources of credit for the transaction, but could not. I decided to go in person to Best Buy the next day. Unfortunately, when I got to the counter and they ran my $1000.00 gift card it showed a balance of $73.13.
I had never used it except on the Best buy site the night before. In the end there were 4 fraudulent purchases made, 2 of which I was able to cancel. Two I could not. One at the GAP online store for $161, the other thru EWC payments in the amount of $612.00. I'm still trying to recover this loss thru the credit card company. They say it can take up to 90 days.
Interestingly enough a ship to address and phone # appearred as part of my account on the best buy web site where one of the fraudulent purchases was attempted. The address was 9100 Mills road Apt 905, Huston, Tx 77070. I've filed a police report. They are investigating the person at that address and are aware of EWC payments fraudulent activities. I hope someone is brought to justice. Anyone have additional or similar information to share regarding this address, the person at it or EWC payments, please pass it on to me. I will pass it on to the authorities.
