I put an order in last week to find out it could take 45 days? Anyway, my credit card company called me today to tell me my card has been compromised.... you guessed it Hobby King order. Never again. On my poop list now. Be careful.
It may not be HK at all....my card was hacked on xbox and someone was buying microsoft points for online gaming but when investigated it was nothing to do with xbox or microsoft and i got the money back
... True. My card company pinpointed the transaction and it happened somewhere between HobbyKing and Paypal. I have never had an issue with Paypal before. IF IT ISN'T HOBBYKING I APOLOGIZE. Would you make a transaction again with them if it happened once?...I don't know...
If you prefer going through a hassle for the sake of CC security, you could get a debit card, to which you only transfer as much as you're going to spend. So if your card gets compromised, they can't steal more than you've transferred into it.
Down side to Debit, it is your money and hard to get back. Credit card is there money and they are more involved to get it back. Should never use a Debit on-line in my opinion and experiance. Was my Debit that was compromised. Lots more uncertain on getting funds returned then with credit card.
The good news is most have good checks and the bad transactions are caught most times, very quick. What got me was one company was notified before product was shipped, by there own words, yet later they decided to keep the money and make me get it back from the card company. Crooks.
Sorry to hear this... I have done A LOT of business with HK. They are lacking in a lot of areas, but they are not credit card thieves. I would suspect someone tagged your paypal account. One thing that I would do is to do a good virus scan and Spyware check. You could have picked up a key logger and sending everything you do to the hacker. As for being in a store, I never let the card out of my site, and never allow someone to hold the card with more than one hand. I very rarely even hand it to the clerk, just show it to them for viewing, not handling. Good luck on getting this thing resolved.
