    Default Hacked for $300...ugh

    Well some of you know that I am an active day trader and I have a debit card tied to my smaller account and today noticed that account was down about $300. Looked at my transactions and there were 5 charges that weren't from me. Called TD Ameritrade and there was actually a 6th that hadn't posted yet. Total was about $300. 2 were from some cosmetics place, 1 from Bodhaige (apparently another cosmetics place, 1 was a $100 door dash gift card, one was for $23.24 for Red Eye Diner (looks like Charlotte) and one from apple.com. Very frustrating. They are refunding my money but deactivated my card and are sending me a new one. I haven't used that card since late February but I do have it tied to my CAT scale app on my phone. Last Wednesday I went to Canton, Ohio to tow my step-sons new camper back and we stopped at a truck stop over there to weigh the truck and camper. I didn't have to pull my card out but did have to authorize payment from the app. Had to have happened then. I'm more aggravated about my dislike for thieves than I am over the $300

    Criminals can totally drain the account connected to a debit card. Beware

    I had my credit card charged for something at best buy but got a email from best buy saying it was ready for pickup. had to cancel card and get new one. It's horrible stuff like this happens. I changed all my passwords on everything and got new cards. Steve

    Yeah all of these transactions were done on 3/30. I check the account balance at the end of every day when the market closes and noticed it was short. I didn't make any trades out of that account for a few days as I was trading my other account so the balance shouldn't have changed. New card is on it's way.

    We recently got rid of our Walmart debit card. It's gotten hacked in the past but they did remedy the situation. However as of Jan 1 they announced they are no longer providing fraud protection. Nice huh? If anything they should have added better protection.

    Everyone who has those cards was notified which I'm also assuming includes the criminals. Needless to say we quickly moved everything to our bank. How stupid of Walmart! Nobody in their right mind would bank with them now. SMH

    There were actually more charges that went through the nest day. Total was about $537. They said they will reimburse me so that's good. The 2nd set of charges was another $85 to Boadiache, and another about $45 to Bodaiche, $101 to Auto Zone and $20 to apple.com.

    We only have 1 credit card and haven't used it in about 6 or 7 years other than putting about $500 on it towards my sons rehearsal dinner last year. Other than that we have 2 debit cards. One usually has alot more in it than the other so we will usually use the smaller account when buying things. At the most there might be $500-700 in that account so that's the loss limit there. The one that was hacked was my TD Ameritrade trading account card. I hardly ever use that one but did tie it to the CAT app.

    That really stinks! I have fortunately never had to deal with cards being hacked, but know people who did, and it's nasty stuff. I hope you get it all sorted out.

    Well all of my funds have been replenished by my bank and my new card came today so all back to normal for now I guess. Really would love to get names of those that had fun with my money so I could have some fun myself...lol
