Anyones chase card get "hacked"?

My southwest card waw stolen but I only use it to buy tickets. I was wondering if it was a case / WN leak or they got lucky with the number generator.

No idea how they get the numbers but doubt its a wide spread leak. I have 2 Chase Marriott cards that routinely (yearly) get hacked and an Amex card I have to swap out every 6 months. Time after time. Yet I have 20+ other cards with no problems...

That happened to someone I know twice in succession, and he also only used the card to buy tickets. However, this was a couple years ago.

Buy tickets how/where? There are other ways to steal card numbers, especially if you buy tickets any other way than through a wired (or secured Wi-Fi) connection at home, using a computer with good internet security. (I keep hearing people in public places give card numbers vocally over the phone, and I keep seeing people in public places doing online shopping with other people able to look over their shoulder. And my internet security program warns me of attacks it thwarted on hotel wifi systems periodically. If I didn't have that internet security program, would they have been able to grab my credit card as I typed it?)

Yes, happened to me too, two weeks ago.

New account - only days old - only purchased tickets from a wired home connection.

Yep, one of my WN Chase cards was hacked earlier this month. Chase let me know about it right when the fraudulent charges started showing up. Just got my new cards in the mail.

I found fraudulent charges on mine in January and got them cleared and the account number changed. After the change a ticket broker called and asked about some super bowl tickets that I had bought and the card was not good. I was not particularly worried about the call as if you have my name you can get my number.

I happens and may be just bad luck and not something specific to Chase.

I wonder if somehow your card got compromised in the mail and than after you Verified you received it than it was used fraudulently

Mine was part of the Target thing, but I did not have any unauthorized charges.


But what un-nerved me was how many places that I went to update with my new card info that ALREADY HAD the new number. W-T-Foock, Chase!? How is that supposed to be secure, if YOU (the bank) are GIVING OUT my bleeping card number to merchants? How do they know that it just might be my chosen opportunity to stop that auto-billing relationship with these vendors?!

Seriously, it bothers/ed me alot that it happened that way...

My wife and I both had are respective cards hacked recently. After talking with chase security I got feeling it was more of a system wide issue than individual cards getting hacked.

Last week, a $12 charge from Brazil was stopped. I got an email and text. I called, some outsourced lady from India stopped the card and another one was reissued. They could have express mailed it, but i did not want my home address linked, so it was snail mailed to my PO Box, just received this morning. Funny thing is I received two cards, one with the old number and another with the new account listed on my online statement.

Happened to me July 4th. Got the text and called , both charges were declined. They closed the account and are sending me a new card.
One was at CVS and one a beauty supply store. Neither over $100.00
very odd.

I think chase has a data leak. Not the WN one but my GFs Slate card had 2 fraud alerts over the weekend. She had never used the CC before and its locked up so its not like someone skimmed the number or anything like that.
