    Anyone get hit by this recently? I just had several charges on my Paypal Debit Card. Put in a dispute with them over the phone but its going to take a few days to resolve at least. I use it occasionally online but I think this was done somewhere locally. Luckily they didn't clean out the account. No, I haven't bought from tfsource.

    Just looked. Middle of August was my last order. Prior to that was April. Thanks for the link, going to check it out now.

    The april date matches up to the OP in that thread. Hope the club store tightens security or changes processors. Something messed up along the line somewhere.

    My last order with them was also April 27th (like the OP in the Allspark thread), plus I bought the Iacon package recently (not having seen the thread at that point), so I've gotten into the daily habit of checking my credit card statement online, just in case.

    April 27th here too. I check the account daily and now i'm glad I do. Thanks for the heads up, now i have an idea where it was compromised at. Was pretty sure it wasnt the USPS lol.

    Funny how you bring that up. The Transformers Collector's Club won't take my mom's credit card because they said it wasn't mine. I'm astonished to hear if someone else used their card on their website and got unusual charges.

    After reading the thread in that link, everyone should always be on alert for phishing and fraudulent calls. My bank's fraud dept. did call me on a PP transaction, but it was legit, both the transaction and my bank..I called the local office to discuss the info instead of the 800#.
    Good luck everybody.

    Paypal has put a hold on my card before when they had questions about some transactions. They were legit then. This time i knew right away something was off when the balance was wrong.

    Thanks for the heads up. I was one of the TFSource buyers where my account was hacked. I joined Lifelock after that happened.

    It happened to me the morning after I bought a TFCC membership, so I guess that's why I got hit after all.

    I was one of the lucky one who managed to actually purchase the club exclusives yesterday and I've since had two fraudulent charges appear on my CC. Anyone else have this issue?

    Its a good thing they are changing processors, then. I'm going to try to use a prepaid with them from now. Sorry to hear you got hit as well.
