I’ve just had another supposedly “Clinton Cards UK” transaction, and I am writing this to warn the community and Revolut, because this is what happened to me around a year ago:
- A small transaction supposedly on/by “Clinton Cards UK”, which was pending/cancelled, followed shortly after by
- A big transaction (around 1600 pounds) on a Vietnamese online shopping website, which was declined because of insufficient funds, followed shortly after by
- A big transaction (around 800 pounds) on the same website, which went through
Basically, my card was skimmed somewhere while I was travelling around Central/East Europe and 800 pounds were stolen. With help from Revolut I eventually got them back. I also disabled that card and got a new one.
The (attempted) transaction that surprised me today was using the old card again. It was declined because the card is inactive now.
But this means that whoever stole my card details not only still has them, but is still trying to use them to steal funds! And doing it in the same manner. Can this not somehow be used to catch them?
