Thread: Hacked Credit Card through Frontgate?

  1. #1

    Default Hacked Credit Card through Frontgate?

    Hey, so 2 of my friends have had their card numbers hacked. They both claim it's through frontgate because they saw some seriously suspicious activity after they got their passes.

    I wanted to know if that happened to anyone else?

    I have had two instances of my cc getting hacked in the last 2 months, I didn't know where it was coming from, I assumed the bar or something else, but I guess this makes sense too. Nothing is safe it seems.

    I had my doubts it was frontgate but my friend used a credit card he hasn't used for anything else in a while.

    Interesting. My debit card (B of A Visa) which I used to purchase my tickets was caneled on me because of someone online merchant compromising my information. They refused to tell me which merchant. I asked them how I was supposed to protect my information and card if I didn't know which merchat and they said they didn't have that information. It happened about 3 weeks ago and was the first time in over 4 years something like that has happened. I wonder if it was Frontgate.

    I had to replace my card twice and notify frontgate because my layaway charges. I was told it was someone in Russia charging 2 $ fees to test the account and prepare to wipe out everything if unnoticed.

    BofA visa

    Edit: I buy a lot of stuff online.

    This is basically the same thing that happened to me but it was in Texas, and I am with a credit union. Luckily my bank cancelled my card on me and I was able to get the money back the first time, the second time they got a little more and I am still waiting to get the money back.

    Sure sounds like a pattern here....

    FRONTGATE & GOLDENVOICE- PLEASE RESPOND

    Have you had ANY employees fired or on watch for Credit Card issues?

    This IS the risk of running on the payment plan Frontgate KEEPS your CC numbers and the employees run the CC.

    I'd advise anyone who is on the payment plan to run through their records. One common scam is they'll run just $.27 cents or $.35 cents so you don't notice right away....and they'll run it month after month till you catch it.

    FRONTGATE & GOLDENVOICE NEEDS TO RESPOND AS THESE ARE SERIOUS ALLEGATIONS THAT IMPACT EVERYONE WHO PURCHASED TICKETS AND NOW IS WONDERING IF THEY HAVE EMPLOYEES STEALING FROM US - IF THEY HAVEN'T STOLE FROM US YET....WE ARE NOW HAVING TO WATCH DUE TO MULTIPLE CONNECTIONS TO FRONTGATE!
    IF THERE ARE A LOT OF CONNECTIONS YOU CAN JOIN TOGETHER FOR A CLASS ACTION SUIT - THEY'LL RESPOND NOW

    My friends purchased their tix at the general sale on Jan 12th (?). One of them got a $600 walmart charge shortly after.

    I find it suspicious that your 2 friends got their passes already...

    They didn't. I meant after they purchased them. Or rather after they got confirmation.

    Did some minor checking around on frontgatetickets.com:

    Scam.com has no reports
    Ripoff Report does have a complaint against Front Gate, but it was for excessive shipping charges
    No rating on MyWot.com
    siteadvisor.com gives it a green checkmark (no significant problems reported)
    delete-computer-history.com does have any records of any complaints against frontgatetickets.com

    If enough people make reports to these sites about this issue, an investigation might happen.

    I'd start pushing their buttons to get info, they can't say some online merchant is compromising info and not give any details, that doesn't make sense does it? Or maybe im just crazy.... or both....

    If anyone could find proof there could be a massive class action suit, but someone would need verifiable proof.

    Set your account so that you'll be alerted anytime a purchase is made online with your card if you are nervous about this.

    Huh. Maybe this is why Wells Fargo unilaterally canceled my debit card three months ago (card I used at FrontGate) due to "suspicious online activity." Interesting.
