My Amazon account was hacked

I have a ‘spending money’ account for this reason — having had unauthorised purchases in the past. I have a ‘Visa Electron’ card in the UK, no overdraft etc and I just transfer money across from my normal account whenever I’m shopping online. If, in a moment of extreme luck, an undesirable managed to make a transaction they’d be limited to the value of whatever purchase I was about to make.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
