Got hacked at Found out just after the stuff was ordered (email from the site) and was able to cancel the order ASAP. I removed my card info from the account and changed the password, but then, decided to delete the account as I rarely used is.

Since I was able to cancel the orders so quickly, they show as pending on my account info, but then, the deletion of the orders show as pending, as well. Called the card services, am getting a new card, and all should be well.

By the way, the orders were for $300 worth of face cream. At 69, even that much face cream would not get rid of my wrinkles.

If I had the power, I would smite all of these hackers to hell--if there were a hell.

The best thing was that you succeded in stopping the order. Happy for you

@Gwendolyn2018 that's very good.


I had my credit card number stolen by the ever revolving secretaries at my doctor's office. It was intercepted by the card's security as a suspicious purchase. The relief you must feel must be enormous. A lesson for us all . Thank you.


I have gotten phone calls that tell me some one is trying to use my Amazon account. The call is from a call center and there is a lot of noise in the background. They got me to do some things to my computer that would have allowed them to copy everything on it. They did not get anything as their agenda was to get into my bank account, They were good, really good and I fell for it. Do n to fall for this, accounts do not work this way and I KNEW IT, BUT DID IT as I had a brain fart. Do not let anyone into your computer, OH I should say that as soon as I really figured out what was going on I unplugged the computer, this killed everything even their connection into it. After about ten minutes I plugged in the computer and erased everything they did to it. Scary.

Another reason I don't answer the phone.


I use my credit card for everything because it gives me travel miles. I pay it off every month so it doesn't cost me anything. My credit card company sends me a text every time I use it and most online merchants send you an email when you buy something. I use Capital One for my credit card and they also create a unique number for each online merchant. That means if any one steals the credit information from a merchant they can't use that number anywhere else.

Me too.

BTW I'm closer to Cuba then a Walmart.

Some people have all the luck!


Sorry this happened to you but it is not Walmart's fault. Those at fault are the greedy people of today and this includes the hackers. You can be hacked and it might be your neighbors, or anyone seeing a piece of mail that might be suggestive.

My ex was always getting hacked in Canada. She was a buying agent for North America but her company had never actually sent her to Canada. The hackers would start with something small and the bank would immediately change all her passwords. Isn't that lovely? I told the bank that when they start changing my passwords without my knowledge it will be time to find another bank. 🙂

Now that this is exposed, Gwen, stay right on top of it. Pending is not a completed transaction.


I'm proud to say I have never set foot (or bought anything) in a Walmart. 🙂


Your already cute, no need for face cream…..

Hackers suck


I work for a credit union as card services. I have these conversations multiple times a day. Glad you're on top of it. I talked to a member this week who was not so on top of things 😟
