Re: Fraud Alert! Watch out for Howl SSL Cloud!!! Chase Slate card Hit

Thanks for the forum. I got my new capital one platinum the other day. Today I saw the alert of Howl SSl cloud of $4.28 followed by two other's of $24.38 them Envision flowers of $43.56 again two of them. Target.com was next with $238.95 $ three more $38.9 from Wal-Mart. All totaling 350 dollars. I called them.immediately n got on with Fraud section who suspended the card n put the transactions on what they called..fraud alert hoping that they will not post n they promised to reverse the amounts. I m appalled that this has been going on with capital one card holders especially and they need to nub these thieves ASAP. I now feel unsafe with any credit card . Be sure to limit your charges like say 23$ so that the system flags any suspicious activity immediately. I was them told that my reversed amount won't be available till 90 days pending the end of the investigation period. I will keep calling them everyday as a follow up n I will not activate the new card in till the issue clears.

I have a Visa card through a local credit union and I saw this charge on my account today from "HOWL SSL CLOUD 7895666652 MA" for $2.60.  Its definately fraud, this forum and several other forums and websites for reporting spam have cases of this all over the internet.  When I called the bank the lady in the fraud department even recalled that this has been an issue for a while.

 

This will be my third chip and pin card since my bank switched to them last fall.  What a headache.  Glad I saw this and cancelled the card before I had more fraudulant charges.

Wanted to give everyone a heads up....make sure to check your accounts for very small charges 

 

 

Just seen that I had a $1.82 charge on my Chase Slate account from Howl SSL Cloud on saturday, May 6th. I was a little confused because I thought maybe my 4 yr old daughter made an in-app purchase on my iphone but I didn't recognize the name because I know for sure I wouldn't charge something so small on a credit card. So I called Chase and asked them about it and the rep said it was a computer software service. I immediately told them I have no idea what that was about. They transferred me to the fraud dept. and when they did that I googled the name and seen a few articles about it being a credit card scam. I read some of the comments from others who have been hit and it seems the scammers have been on a spree for the last 2 weeks. When I spoke to the fraud dept, the rep said that I had another purchase for $.60 for google services but chase declined it because it looked suspicious. I am annoyed by the fact that they never contacted me about that to verify if it was me or not which it was clearly not me but it would have been nice to know when it happened. Luckily for me I caught the small charge but for others it seems that they do a test charge for a small amount and then hit the account for larger amounts ($200, $300, $400, etc). Someone who had Wells Fargo said that Wells Fargo told them it was based out of California and was hacked through some kind of online payment system but wouldnt comment further because it is a pending investigation. Chase cancelled my card and is in the process of overnighting my replacement. 


Good to know. Thanks for heads up.

My experience and reading about the similar experiences of others is eye opening. I'm definitely more aware of the activity that goes on with my accounts and I'm glad that my post is helping others become more aware of theirs as well.

Re: Fraud Alert! Watch out for Howl SSL Cloud!!! Chase Slate card Hit

You know with all these professionals here you would think we would get an answer as to this fraud. How did this company get access to our card numbers? Is this being investigated? With all the professionals on this web page you would think there would be somebody who would be able to help. I'm already aware of what the scam is but how did it happen? Are they using those readers or something? I just hope that this webpage is about helping people with credit not just chastising them for not paying back a credit card. Let's get on it fraud invetigators! Give the people who can't afford to pay the credit card back that was given to them by credit card companies that should have had stricter guidelines arrest and let's find these Crooks who are fraudulently charging our cards! I want an update on this and I want a solution I want to know what Ss Howl is and I want to know when they're going to be charged prosecuted and convicted of fraud.

And the reason is that possibly myfico doesn't make any money from fraud investigations they only make money from harassing poor people to pay back their credit card
