Beware of using debit/credit cards with Noppin!!

So, I just had a major scare today with my bank account. Seems someone got a hold of my debit card info from Japan and charged a hefty sum of money on it. I went to the bank and they told me it was from Noppin. I normally use Noppin for my deputy services and have never had a problem using them, even from way back when they were called Crescent.

Turns out the extra charges were from them. Last I used Noppin was about a month and a half ago, and my purchases were already shipped to me. I've had my items for quite sometime, and paid everything I needed to. From my experience, they do not ship until all charges have been paid/cleared.

It seems they may either have a security breach, made a mistake and charged me double (And then about 100$ more), or they may actually have some theft going on. I'm letting you guys know, only because many of us use deputy services and I do not want this happening to anyone else.

Please be a little on guard, and check your info! Only way I found it, was by checking my account daily.. sometimes more then once a day (I obsess over it at times.. ^^;). Thankfully, I went to the bank this morning and they are fixing the issue. They said it was good to check and that I did the right thing by coming to them immediately.

If this post is not allowed, please let me know and I will remove it. I just want to get the word out about it so you can be on guard and not be out money!
