Just got scammed for the 2nd time in two years from a hacker shopping Walmart.com.

I’ve never purchased anything from Walmart.com

Crooks are smart

Contact Walmart and let them know. You are most likely not the only one cry

That doesn't mean some one stole your info from Walmart. That means they stole your info than purchased something from Walmart.

Scammers get a lot of info from card skimmers at gas station pumps since they don't get checked often.

This was a new credit card
Never used

Apparently it’s easy to use a credit card on Walmart.com
Without verifying info

The card issuer should be very interested in the fact it was never used.

Right! If it's never been used, how was it hacked?

I think there are more inside jobs from former employees or distant friends of employees. We had an issue some time back and the bank agent told us, its interesting that all the customers hit were this bank and used the same cell phone service provider.

I check the transactions on my credit card every evening and never have been hacked.


Boy will I be happy when ALL vehicles on public roads are autonomous.

But you've never used it online, right? So how can they get your card# and CVC if you've never used it?

I'm not saying that nothing happened but something just doesn't add up. Have you called VISA/MC???

Besides contacting the issuer of the card I would notify Walmart.com and change your account password.

I've heard of some smaller or oddball banks issuing credit cards and the new owner finding out it already has charges to it before they even get the card.

It has to be an inside job at the bank for that to happen.

These are the folks that chase credit card signup bonuses at small banks and credit unions. Some banks are notorious.

It isn't in the issuers interest to have a card hacked. They will have to refund you that money. They will also be interested in knowing why they are refunding money to you for a third party theft on a never used card.

I've had my actual identity stolen by some guy in Texas working under my SSN, so spare me the lecture.... and you still haven't even proffered an hypothesis on how they got your card# if in fact you've never typed it into a website or used it at a gas pump for that matter. What are you suggesting, somebody used telepathic powers to peer into your billfold to get your card #?

Exactly!

If ya ask me, I'd be asking a family member if they used the card..if in fact this is a never been used before card to the OP's knowledge.
