Regular occurrence with many users, only Google Play gift cards are purchased. Amazon refunds if you complain. Only two step authentication can prevent it. Saving passwords in Google/ Browser could be a possible source. From there, 3rd party apps or website hidden scripts can steal it

Always enable 2FA if you’re having pay balance in it

Please keep us posted on the recent apps you installed official or unofficial. And also if you happen to share credentials to use any card offers.
