    Thumbs down credit card # stolen on market, BEWARE

    i got a wal mart visa just for droid since apps cannot be billed, have many apps with no probs, then i got one or 2 from UK, (still trying to find out wich one it is), then all of a sudden i notice 99 cents i didnt charge, once or twice, then all of a sudden 29.94, 30 bux, another 30 bux, gone from random places and websites in UK, this is no joke i will provide any help/proof needed, no slander of google or market here , people just need to be aware this happened, bc it mocked app prices for a month before i caught on , check your statements!!

    nope im getting it all back i just had to fax a report of the ones i did in fact pay for from UK and all the others have different info so its obvious when it doesnt say "google checkout" as 99 percent of all other charges state.
    this needs to be a sticky, btw

    This really doesn't make any sense to me, yeah sure the timing is a bit strange and the location( are you sure the apps were really from the uk or you just guessing because the price was in euros?) anyhoot the reason I say its strange is because when you purchase an app from the app store you are providing your credit card info to google checkout and not the developer of the app... anyhow my two cents.

    there is no other way bc this card was bought only for my droid, i have not used it one other place, after i entered the ## in my droid on google i put it in my safe, where its been ever since, and i have spoken with wal mart and visa , 2 of charges were in a retail store in UK , not online, so im pretty sure i havent been to the UK, and the ones that were not in retail stores were in UK as well , so yes this happened 3 days ago and i waited for visa to confirm they were false charges before i posted,

    This is HIGLY unlikely.

    Google Checkout uses the same SSL securities banks do and there is no peer to peer transactions that take place.

    Had same thing happen, only a couple of .99 and one for 1.99 no 30.00 yet. but it did happen. I let it go thinking maybe got billed twice for some reason, and they were all over seas apps?

    Ok well I am at a loss for an explanation. There would be much bigger problems if Google checkout security was breached there has to be another explanation
