1. 1/31/12 Gamestop.com $49.99 purchase
2. 1/16/12 Experian credit report purchase of ~$17 (which is odd and the AMEX rep said "maybe they're trying to steal your ID"....great....)
Really lame but AMEX is great and am disputing them with no issues.
I use my AMEX for everything I can, BBTS, TFSource, and, most recently, Toy Arena in late December. My first purchase from them so maybe that's related? I use it on plenty of non-TF stuff as well so who knows.
I am so glad that Seibertron posted this. I recently caught the fraudulent charge of an Experian credit report membership on my card, and filed a fraud report with my card company and they have refunded the charge and issued me a new card.
The reason I am glad Seibertron posted this and that I read the post here from Shemovedon is that now I am almost sure I know where it came from. It was either BBTS, or Paypal that got hacked. My charge for the Experian report membership was dated right after I had purchased items via Paypal, and BBTS.
I suspect Paypal more, but since Shemovedon had same fraud charge after BBTS purchase, unfortunately I think they might have been the ones hacked. For me to have the same fraud charge as a Seibertron member I don't even know, and using a different card then mine, is too much of a coincidence to be sure.
I love BBTS, but they may need to do some investigating for hacks. I am holding off on further purchases via BBTS until further information is researched.
