If there was ever a way for me to give up gambling for a bit, this is it. I've had to cancel 3 credit cards over the last week due to fraudulent activity. They were only the ones I used to make deposits at 5dimes. I'd like to think it was just a coincidence, but I'm not buying that. I think the servers they used were hacked. Not sure were they're located but on my bills, it's typically been an address in China. Needless to say, they've all been cancelled. I did inform 5dimes of it and the chat lady said they'd look into it (somehow I'm kinda doubting that). I also did a query on it and saw replies on Reddit with others that this has happened to....
"Just got a call from BoA alerting me to a $1000 transaction on my credit card that triggered a fraud alert.Here is the kicker, someone called in minutes before me and authorized the charge and the card used was a card I reserve only for using with 5dimes so I would know if something happened. 5dimes is the only entity that would have the information needed to do this."
"I was a victim of ID Theft where someone opened a credit card and checking account in my name. The information used to open the account was directly pulled from the info associated from my 5dimes account (Address had been misspelled when I created my 5dimes account, same error was on the bank account). Detective assigned to the case was able to show me the ID used to open the account, the picture was the exact same one I submitted to 5dimes to verify a payout (not sure why they needed my ID for a bitcoin payout). Iím not sure if they are selling customer data or security is so lax that someone was able to steal it. I suggest monitoring your credit in case this isnít an isolated incident."
Despite some of the recent comments about them going down for money laundering and the like, I had been able to get money out of them with little problems since those reports (and kept a small balance at all times). But this shit's a little more serious if they are lacking on their security of customer information.
