Well not only have I been a Web Developer for years now, I am also the owner of THIS website www.reportacrime.co.za!! So yes, I do know exactly what to look for when making payments online with my Credit Card and to prevent topics such as SCAM and FRAUD!
Such as one must look at the URL and also make sure the URL is secure by making sure the website URL starts with https:// - the s stands for secure.
I also know not to fill in forms when you get emails saying you needs to "Update your details."
I also know you must NEVER let someone walk off with your credit card when paying for something in the shops.
BUT yes!!! Last night before I went to bed I got 4 different messages saying money have been reserved for purchase!!R1785.27 reserved for purchase at Fitzgerald InnR1408.30 reserved for purchase at Grand Stay SuitR11417.68 reserved for purchase at Riviera InnR15710.73 reserved for purchase at Mandarin InnThis was on my Discovery Credit Card so I called Discovery right away on 086-011-0132 and placed a hold on my credit card. They could not reverse the transactions though and they told me to call the credit card department on 011-352-5910.
The line was so busy I called them like 4 times and not once did I get through! So I set my alarm for 11:45pm and called again.
THEN I got through! They did the reversal and this morning I got the messages on my phone where each of them have been reverse.....
Sjoe, dont know HOW that happened!!
