TWX*AOL QStore / Debit Card Fraud
Someone stole my debit card information and charged $1 through this service. This was just a check they were using to verify the validity of the card and account. After this transaction went through for them, they then charges $1050 to western union.com for a money transfer, additional fraudulant postings to the account included Verio WebHosting for $465.70, Web Calling UK, PeopleFinders.com, FotoVista for $10.75, and 2 charges to MOVEON for $5 each (I suspect they were testing the account with the smaller charges. My bank has been fantastic, but this fraulant activity can not continue. If criminals can this easily steal this much money in a few hours, how can we consumers feel we are getting good value for our money? Everyone of our transactions has a built in payment for the company to cover the costs of thieves and criminals stealing from them, and ultimately from us. The bad guys are winning if we don't demand better security from these companies that seem to foster this type of activity and the companies that make the equipment that scans credit cards, etc. Do thes people not have security controls? Will they sell this equipment to just anyone?
