As much as I love bashing Hasbro, Im gonna side with them on this issue. Even Alcatraz security was breached at one point. Pointing fingers is not important anymore. What is more important is making sure it never happens again. And also to reimburse those who were affected. Maybe a free years membership would be appropiate. It's not like every time somebody hacks a gas pump or ATM do you get an official company statement. Life goes on...
So SONY was not issuing all kinds of warnings and public statements when they got jacked? I think they were.
One years membership $40, credit card fraud charges $4000. Hmmm... Not that most cc companies won't remove the charges if you can prove that it is fraud. If they won't you should get a new card.
Moving on for some after this is easy. For others whose finances are a but more crunched...not so much.
All Im saying is credit card fraud happens every day. You discover it, report the charges to your company and get them removed, and get a new card. That's the credit card companies job. They take the hit. They make billions in interest on people who cant pay their bills in full. What else can Hasbro and Funpub do except issue a statement and request information to help track down the theif ? But It seems Transformer fans are expecting a free handout. Thats why I suggested a years membership free. $40 bucks is more than enough reimbursment for making a few annoying phone calls and cancelling a card.
If you write your own checks and review your monthly balance before you pay, any fradulaunt charge should be detected and removed before any hassle. If you pay $4000 in charges and then review your statement after you paid, youre fault. That's why I dont authorize my bank to make any automatic payments. It's not the banks job to catch fake charges, it's mine.
