Credit card breach?

Postby Hawkmoon » Mon Apr 15, 2019 2:39 pm

What do you gents know about credit card processing? I received a notice yesterday (Sunday) that one of my cards had been used for an attempted purchase from Walmart Online. Mercifully, the bank for some reason suspected that the charge might have been fraudulent, declined the charge, and contacted me. They said the person tried three times.

So that card has been cancelled and the bank will send a replacement card. It appears that the only recent purchases I have made using that card were from legitimate firearms-related companies: Lee Precision, and a magazine vendor from whom I have purchased in the past. I don't want to think that the breach was someone in either of the vendor companies, but could it be someone in one of the companies these vendors use to process credit card payments?

Has anyone here made any purchases directly from Lee and shortly thereafter had a fraudulent charge to their credit card?
