Credit Card Hacked

May 29th, 2021 at 06:56 pm

In the midst of everything else going on, my Capital One Credit card was hacked! I got an alert asking if I had tried to make a purchase at LA Police Gear. I responded no & immediately opened my app to review purchases. They had made several purchases at online gun & tactical gear websites. This alarmed me & I contacted Capital One and several of the vendors immediately. 

I'm getting a new card, but this worried me because of the type of purchases. I certainly don't want anyone planning anything criminal with these purchases.

    If you are comfortable dealing with the police, you could report this to them or to the FBI.
    They can probably track the buyer from a delivery address or perhaps information the buyer had to provide.

    You might want to change your passwords on the credit card account and make sure they didn't change the email account related to it. And for good measure you might want to change the password on your email account as well. When someone hacked our hulu account they changed the email info at the same time so we wouldn't see that we'd been charged for extra add ons. But they made a mistake by locking us out of our hulu account which we noticed the next day.
