Batteries.com/RSI Partners Theft

A very clever person has stolen my credit card number and stated charging my account.

If you purchased anything on-line from Batteries.com, watch your credit card statements for a $9.55 charge from RSI Partners. Apparently someone has hacked into or somehow obtained customer records from Batteries.com, and then used them to charge your credit card, under the name RSI Partners.

The clever part is the $9.55 charge is smaller than the bother of calling your card company and getting new cards.

Arrrrrgggghhhhh +

Thanks for the heads up and sorry for the aggravation. Why can't people just work for their money?

Our friends just bought an acreage and in the time between selling their existing home and the new place they required interim financing. When they applied they were told that they owed WalMart several thousand dollars and were significantly overdue, thus no credit available. It turned out that someone acquired their credit card info in a similar manner as you mention although how has not yet been determined, then used that to acquire WalMart credit cards and away they went from there. It has been quite a chore for them to get this all cleared up, and she's a banker too boot. You may want to get ahold of your local credit agency and let them know that this has happened and get their advice on how to make sure these people don't start using it elsehwere. This is in addition to the credit card company......as these people may use the current info to then acquire a card from some other company in your name and then you have problems.

You should contact the credit agencies listed on this page and have them place a fraud alert on your account. http://www.fightidentitytheft.com/fraud_numbers.html

You can put a fraud alert on each of the credit agencies for 90 days and this doesn't cost anything. If you have been a victim of someone using your credit when you file a police report then you can put a permanent alert on your account.
If you can get much help from the police, then you are doing much better than we could. We knew the address of the crook and her name but could not get the local department to do anything. There was an outstanding warrant for this person's arrest but still no response.
Best of luck.
Been there, done that.

Happened to me too. Only is was Overstock.com. I actually got the name and address of the person using my account. The police said they were investigating and that it where it ended.

Had to close and reopen all my credit card accounts. I wonder if she is still getting free stuff using other peoples accounts

As long as people can keep doing this, and suffereing no consequences, they will continue to do so.
