    Just a quick note from me, I preordered a set of the new Casualty Brut repaints, and the same card was recently blocked due to fraud charges to university of Colorado at Denver and some dating site out of SanFran, never been to Denver and never been to that site.

    To be clear, I'm not saying the site was the cause, just that I had my first identity theft incident ever, and it happened a couple weeks after my first order with TFS.

    Hey Everyone,

    This thread has gone WAYY off topic, several times. It's gone from an alert thread (twice) into a discussion on TFSource as a whole, to Store vs Store, to analysis of specific non-CC issues, with people pro and against, for the most part just arguing with each other.

    There are still reports trickling in, but they are not as frequent as they were a month ago. This thread will be shut down for now, since it can not stay on topic (repeatedly), and the immediate need to alert fellow fans and try to figure out what happened is over.

    Curt has posted here, and made a decision to handle communication in his own way. Please continue to discuss the matter with him via email if you would like further issues clarified or resolved.

    IF another large round of security issues happens specifically with the Transformers community, someone can start another thread then. Keep in mind, I don't want the TFGD to become a credit investigation unit. This is not the place for that. We all have credit cards for the most part, and all of us will probably get hit at some point.

    In the future, please try to make sure that a CC issue you report to this TRANSFORMERS community is related some how, with proof, before starting another thread. That's valid and welcome. Just saying that you got hit and happened to shop somewhere is not grounds for starting another thread.

    One last point, other discussion was going on in here prior to shut down, off topic. If you would like to leave specific accounts of how you personally interacted with a sponsor or a member here, please use Junkion Exchange's feedback section. We don't have a clear defined way of handling he-said-she-said situations right now, and that will change. But for now, please use that method and follow the rules in that area accordingly.
