I have stadrad chartered super value credit card. 2 hours back it got charged for 16000064 VND (44000 INR) @ facebk *xxxxxx.

Blocked the CC. But dispute is not filed. cust care told to wait 24-48 H to raise the dispute as merchant will take that much time to confirm it. Do I really need to wait till the merchant confirmation to raise the dispute?

I used this card only in amazon, grofers, Abhi Bus & E-batua.
I think E-batua is the culprit as we have to enter the card details in their app before going to PayU payment gateway. But there is one more option to directly go to PaUMoney gateway

What precautions we can take to avoid it?

Credit/Debit Card usage guidelines
1. Never save card details in any site. Remove auto saved ones
2. Disable international transactions / Lower the limit of international transactions
3. If option is there then always enter your card details in payment gateway
4. If card account provides VCC use it.

Any other suggestions?

PS.
I saved my CC only in Abhibus

Transaction dates (Made only 1 transaction in all online sites)
Abhi bus – 05-05-2017
E-Batua – 19-06-2017
Grofers – 09-07-2017

How can we limit international transaction limit on the card? I have never seen such feature on either my ICICI card or Citibank card.

Sad to hear such stories, very difficult to trust new websites lately. Hope you get your money reverted.

@BaMbU You will have to wait till it appears in your unbilled transactions. You got the notification for payment authorization.

Unfortunate and dangerous… https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_eek.gif

True that best protection would be to not use card at all on unknown sites, and not save on ANY site. However, practically, we (me included) do keep saving cards most of the time, especially on sites where we do regular shopping!

Reason-Mainly for convenience, but also supported by faith that companies involved in the financial txn / payment process must have been taking adequate precautions…So personally, I think its ultimately about maintaining a safe balance between safety vs convenience and requirement to do txns => On high trust sites like Amazon, Flipkart, may be we can save details w/o much concern, but on new or least trust sites, we can and should avoid saving this info…

Despite this, we are all exposing our selves to risks (incl frauds, hacking of sites, password thefts) by very activity and its nature… if one is hyper sensitive, one may carry less risk…we differ in risk aversion or risk appetite… So let’s just all basic precautions-and a little more, and couple it with following ‘best practices for doing financial txns on internet or even offline’, and we should be fine 99.9% of the time…..?

bro it is not necessary that e-batua might be the culprit ,
it may be possible that e-batua had a weak security and the hackers obtained the cc details through their site .

https://www.desidime.com/forums/dost-and-dimes/... – Already i discussed this here. Credit cards are stolen from some gateway and they are using it for fraudulent purchases. I request you to contact the bank once again and report it . you cannot go by what they say as your main priority is to report it and one cannot wait for 48 hours since merchant will claim the amount. Same thing happened in my case and i reported it immediately. It will take anytime between 45-60 days to resolve the issue. Moreover report this to facebook here https://www.facebook.com/help/contact/649167531... @BaMbU

E-Batua App: Refer & Earn-Free Rs.20 Bank Cash Per Referral – Never ever trust these kind of deals for the sake of giving them your aadhar number or your card details.

I do suspect E-batua since you just clear your cache in the app and try to login. It will not allow you to login https://cdn1.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_smile.gif Just to collect the details, they played us smart….. All report this app in playstore.

I doubt E-batua directly involved in it. Due to their weak security measures data might got hacked. Thanks for the FB link

I don’t recognise a charge or I was overcharged is the option you need to choose on FB. you would have got some 10 Digits code. Put that code there so that they can block the fraudster.

Bro, i will not blame payumoney as all my other cards are safe and i used payumoney for other site transactions too. e-batua was involved in this definitely since whoever used this site on June for transactions got their data stolen and misused.

Don’t fall for these apps for 10-20rs.. Always ensure you are using a payment gateway for transactions.. Better safe than sorry..

Somehow I missed your tag. I tried to raise the complaint. But it was showing ‘no advertising account’. Any idea?

Just create a simple advertising account and then tell them that this charge doesnt belong to you.

Just email them and clearly tell them you have not made this transaction and hence you are not going to pay for it. wait for them to reply. they will send you an upgraded card.
