Okay so just wanted to post here that I’ve figured out what happened. I was wrong about an old password being a part of this, although I have gone and changed all my passwords. As I was going through the emails I realized they are all subscriptions, they weren’t actually trying a password to access any accounts, just signing me up so that it spammed my email account. So I googled it, it looks like what happened was my email address and credit card information were the only things compromised, and the email subscriptions were all done by a bot just to hide the unauthorized credit card charge (as it was in the middle of almost 2k emails). Thankfully Amex denied the charge immediately and identified the fraud, so it was all just an annoying hassle on my end to unsubscribe from anything that was successful (a lot weren’t because they sent emails asking to click on a link to confirm). So yeah, thanks to everyone that responded, I appreciate it!!
Hey, sorry if this isn’t the right subreddit to post this in, if there’s a better one please let me know.
I woke up this morning to a fraud alert from my Amex (they stopped a fraudulent charge while I was sleeping for about $2500), and to almost 2k new emails from various websites in all different languages asking me to confirm Registration or confirming my registration. I believe one of my old passwords (haven’t used in years and I was previously notified of being in a breech) was obtained along with my email address, and somehow they got my credit card info (no idea how) by someone in China (one of the confirmation emails actually had the person registerings IP address) was trying to use it to see if they could gain access to any accounts I have online. These seemed to be totally random however, I went through all emails to check to see if there were any websites that were familiar, there weren’t. I think the only really annoying this is I seem to now be signed up to a bunch of mailing lists, ugh.
Anyways, besides the Amex (card had already been reissued, and charge was denied) and my e-mail address being used, I can’t find any other issues. I changed my email password just in case, and went and froze my credit at all three credit bureaus just to be safe. But is there anything else I should be doing that I haven’t thought of?
Thank you in advance!!!
Change your password to every account you can think of.
Monitor all of your bank accounts and credit cards for unusual activity.
Remember to change the password on your email account, and you might want to add two-factor authentication to it as well.
Consider reporting the incident to identitytheft.gov
Signing your email address up for accounts and mailing lists is a common tactic to make you miss an order confirmation email from a legitimate site that you use, or to make you miss a two-factor authentication email. You need to change passwords on everything. I would consider getting a new email address too
That IP address is almost certainly worthless
Great post. https://www.provenexpert.com/car222/
What’s up, the whole thing is going fine here
and ofcourse every one is sharing data, that’s
actually excellent, keep up writing. https://nerdgaming.science/wiki/User:Car222
I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1
or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
Thanks for one’s marvelous posting! I definitely enjoyed reading it,
you might be a great author.I will make sure to bookmark your
blog and will eventually come back sometime soon. I
want to encourage you to ultimately continue your great writing, have a nice evening!
