Default If you bought boxes at blowout, cancel your credit card...

They had a credit card database breach that they found out about today; a group of their customers all had fraudulent purchases recently. So if you bought from blowout's store with a credit/debit card, it's best to cancel it before charges start showing up.

So far it's only buried in their message board post, as their customers are angry that blowout hasn't emailed all of them directly.

Default Thanks

Now I (likely) know how someone made fraudulent charges on my Amex last month, which I figured out after the idiot had the goods delivered to me. I used it to buy 3 boxes from Blowout in January. Sigh. Thankfully there were just "trial" charges on the card after they had set up two fake Paypal accounts in my name.

Although I would think Blowout would be more forthcoming with notifying customers. I've spend several hours on the phone with Amex, Paypal, several of my banks, a tactical supply company (a victim), and Mark and Spencer (a victim). Plus I had to put a freeze on my credit with Experian, right in the middle of finalizing a mortgage, which was fun.

It's kind of crappy service from Blowout.

For that, my full name is,

Tony Colacino

They finally made a statement about the hack.
