Default Have you ever had your debit card hacked?

In the last month, my wife's card got hacked, and now mine got it. This is the first time in my life I have ever had this problem, and it has happened twice in less than a month.

The only thing that has changed is my mobile device. I have had an Iphone ever since the first one came out. About 4 months ago, I switched to the Galaxy S8. The guys at work, all have Iphones, and they are trying to tell me that Android based phones are less secure than Iphones, and that is probably the reason I am having trouble. I do have my banking app on my phone, and I do online purchases, but mostly only use Paypal.

The only difference in my life is this new phone. Could this really be the culprit? I don't download any strange apps or click links that look fishy. I am very careful when choosing passwords and try to change them often.

Any insight on this would be great. I am getting very frustrated at this point. They hit me for $585.97 this last time.

Thanks in advance for any input.

never use your debit card as a debit card. always run it as a credit card. never enter your pin. nothing will keep you 100% safe. but this will help.

I never use my debit card but my credit card has been hacked 4 times now. Chase caught the first 3 and called me, I caught the 4th. The person I talked to the last time said every bit of information that was entered was correct. CC number, 3 digits on the back, name, etc.
Chase has been great about it every time. The worst part about the whole deal is setting up all my auto drafted bills on the new card.

I've had my debit card and credit card hacked. Both in the last year.

Debit card was through a local restaurant in which SEVERAL were hacked. Not sure where or how the credit card got hacked.

But since the last hacking, I try to use mostly cash now. I mainly use my credit card for fuel, groceries, and places such as Atwoods that I trust.

Everything else is cash.

Nothing or nowhere is safe anymore. Debit or credit cards. Been hacked several times in the last few years, my wife as well. We never have found out conclusively where they were hacked but we suspect the 7-11 by the house. Quit going there but the wide got hacked again last week. It's a never-ending fight. Cash only mentality isn't even safe if the hack the bank or card system.

Yes, about a year ago. The bank called me, asking if I had been shopping in Laredo recently. I said no. They told me someone had used my card at a Wal-Mart in Laredo, twice. They stopped the charges and sent me a new card. I was surprised they caught it so quickly. There had to be something suspicious about the transactions.

Chase called me about 5 years ago and asked, did you just purchase as airline ticket at London Hearthrow airport for $945?

Nope.

They canceled my account immediately (naturally) and sent me a new card about three days later. I got a temporary card from the local branch a few minutes after I got the call.

One other time about a year ago, I caught the hack about 15 minutes after it happened. I had put a check in my account online and was looking to see if it cleared and noticed a charge for a couple of hundred dollars that I didnít make.

Then I signed up for automatic notifications so any time my card is used or any other transaction on my account, I get a text message.

Man. This is insane. I knew it happened but not to this extent.

So what is the deal with the skimmer? Is there a way to tell if it's on the machine? Is this most likely how it happened? Like i said the guys at work keep saying it's because I don't have an iPhone anymore but i dont know how true that is.

I had it happen once and the only place I could tie it to was maybe a Taco Bell. The skimmers are popping up all over Southeast Texas. They have found them at several smaller local gas stations as well as the Pilot truck stop on Hwy 62 & IH10.

The comment about Wells Fargo hits home but in opposite fashion. With our Harvey rebuild in progress, Wells Fargo sure keeps that in check. I've had to delay purchases as I hit my debit card spending limit and they won't raise it. I had to start writing a few checks at Home Depot just to get my purchases completed. Very aggravating.

I got hit 4 years ago. Wife and I just got married and were going to go to Galveston for a few days to relax. Went to fuel up and got declined. Called my mom who is my banker and she said I got hit for $1500 and $500 in NY. One at a dunkin donuts and one at some coffee shop. We believe it got hit at a gas station on the way to Galveston.

Thankfully I had about $2000 cash in my pocket to pay for everything.

I just stopped using the debit completely. Everything is now on a credit card and I pay the total off each month and keep no balance. Better protection, that eliminates direct access to the bank account. The debit was repeatedly getting hit by others.

If you are with a good bank you should never be out more than $50. I been hacked at least 4 times debit and CC and Chase took care of it almost immediately. I never lost a dime. On the debit money was back in my account in just an hour or so.

Good luck.

I've had to get a different card twice because of that. I'd like to find out where one of those little nerds hacking on to people's cards lives. I'd sneak in while they're sitting on that computer and punch him right in the ear and round house kick him straight in the back of the head. I hate that crap,it's annoying.

Interesting note, we have a friend that works at a local Credit Union with 5 branches. They have 6 ladies that take turns monitoring their clients/customers transactions in an "on call" fashion over the weekends/holidays. They have a rotation and they go on call about 8 times a year and can trade out with others if necessary. Basically, they have a lap top and monitor transactions every 90 minutes or so, she doesn't go into detail but I guess there is a report that runs and they look it over?

That seems like a lot to look at for just one person.

Go with a bank that sends an automatic text to your cell phone every time it is used. Might cost a few dollars a month but well worth it.

Our chase cards do this for every transaction over $5, plus I check regularly on the app. Even this isnít fool proof as we have still been hit but chase catches them quick and shuts it down. Amex sends emails that are linked to phone.

I got off the plane in Anchorage Alaska and tried to buy a beer at the airport. Somebody had hacked my debit card and spent $5,000 off the coast of Italy. I looked up the places they went and they were not slumming it. I had to go to a bank in anchorage and get it resolved before flying into the bush for 10 days. Great way to start a hunt.

I don't know how it happened, but apparently my bank seems to think they actually made a duplicate of my card. They were using it at retail stores in the Houston area. Went to the Willowbrook mall shopping, then the movies. A bar and grill called the Hut in Houston, a sandwich shop called the Wrap, and several transactions at QMart in Houston. It just blows my mind........

I'll definitely have to look into this. Would be well worth it no matter what it cost. I bank with Prosperity and they have been really helpful both times. Apparently they have been seeing this more and more lately. They found a skimmer on the ATM machine at the Valero in New Waverly! Seriously?! New Waverly!!!!! We only have 1 stop light!!!!!!!

got mine once, figured they lifted info when I used it once, even though rarely use it.
then found out they got my brothers the same week (maybe even same day). both of us use the same credit union, but live in different cities. only thing that would make sense was the numbers getting lifted from the credit union.

Fooled by random... This is a random thing but the only thing you can link it to is the phone. I've had this happen to me a hand full of times and every time its linked back to the processing centers that our bank uses.
We are fortunate that our bank is quick about putting the money back in our account while the details are worked out.

Somebody bought $100 worth of gas with mine in Michigan a couple of months ago. Bank put it back in my account within a couple of days. Just a pain being without a debit card for a week waiting on a new one after that one was cancelled.

I guess no one reads.... the type of phone doesn't matter. Your co-workers are full of it.

If it happened to both you and your wife recently there is probably a skimmer somewhere you both shop/make purchases.

Nothing to do with your phone. Ever been to a target, home Depot, Lowe's, Walmart, Neiman Marcus, UPS, Goodwill, P.F. Chang's, Sally's Beauty Supply, Michaels, Wendy's? Or many of the other thousands of companies that get hacked.

I always use a credit card for purchases. That way it's never my money that is stolen(yes I know most debits accounts have fraud protection but the money they steal is yours and it's gone until the back puts it back)

Well...........

Got the first PITA account hacking resolved. Bank was really good and understanding, buuuuuuut, found out Monday that now they got my card!

So back to the bank I went. $785 .98 this time. Then, to top it all off, my wife gets a call yesterday at work from the bank notifying her of some questionable transactions. Yep, they got her AGAIN!!!!

So, I just pulled out some cash to live on for the next few weeks, and seriously considering going old school and using cash only from now on. I am beyond frustrated at this point. 3 times in less than 2 months. Bad thing is we have many of our bills auto drafted just for the convenience. Guess it's not worth it.

Crazy thing about this whole deal is that every one of the transactions was in the Houston and surrounding area. Which is only about an hour south of where we live. Almost seems like it was the same person. Bank said they had probably made a duplicate of our cards and even set up their own pin number.

Anybody ever use Lifelock?

Sorry for the rant, I am just at my wits end with this crap.

$163 worth of Pizza on mine from the same store for delivery to the same address over a 10 day period. Bank nor cops would not tell me the address of the perps but did say they would not be eating any pizza for a very long time.
Bank refunded my account within 2 days.

So, I just pulled out some cash to live on for the next few weeks, and seriously considering going old school and using cash only from now on. I am beyond frustrated at this point. 3 times in less than 2 months. Bad thing is we have many of our bills auto drafted just for the convenience. Guess it's not worth it.

Crazy thing about this whole deal is that every one of the transactions was in the Houston and surrounding area. Which is only about an hour south of where we live. Almost seems like it was the same person. Bank said they had probably made a duplicate of our cards and even set up their own pin number.

Anybody ever use Lifelock?

Sorry for the rant, I am just at my wits end with this crap.
Did the bank not issue new debit cards with new numbers? Been hacked once and got a new card with different number on card. Also my bank had me come in and get a new debit card yesterday because they felt my card was compromised from Sonic getting hacked. I would just love 10 minutes alone with a hacker.
