Cornerstorecomics and credit card fraud

Post by drspleen on Sat Jun 13, 2009 2:49 pm

Hey, sort of old news, everyone here knows that orders placed at CSC around the DCUC wave 7 time got compromised and the credit card details ended up out there.

It looks like this has happened again (timeframe ~DCUC Cool, I got hit again. However, a number of people the fwoosh have been hit too and are up in arms. Instead of addressing it professionally, like they did last time, CSC appears to have clammed up.

I've already put in a pre-order for wave 9 though this time I'm going to switch it to a paypal payment. Which brings me to the point of this, apparently a few people at fwoosh have noted fraudulent paypal activity. No one's really sure if it's related, but the current working theory is that if your paypal account has the same email and password as your csc account it may be vulnerable.

I though that was worth noting. The good stuff starts around page 145 of the thread here

I heard some PayPal accounts got stung after customers asked for refunds to be made via PayPal. I haven't put an order in for DCUC9 yet, was thinking about ordering through ETC or BBTS this time around.

BBTS is the way to go I'd say - or maybe ask Casefresh if they are getting DCUC 9?

they were very open about it the first time round. their security provider got compromised and they outlined what they'd done to ensure it never happened again. it was all very plausible and convincing. my current conundrum is that i have a pre-order for 9 with them (made b4 this second error) and they'll charge me to cancel it... I'm waiting to see how they respond to this mess as CSC have stopped posting on the fwoosh.

yeah, I got all my figures, it was just people getting stung afterwards with additional charges. I came out clean though, apparently credit card thieves usually check the cards with small purchases first (e.g. itunes). my bank caught it at that stage and killed the card both times. it's more annoying than anything else.

enchantedtoychest.com, they're probably going to be my top choice from now on. a little more expensive than CSC and a slightly smaller operation, but good bunch. CSC would need to have some damn good explanations to wash away the tide of ill feeling they've generated this time...
