Rakuten and Wa1mart should both have their url's blocked by Slickdeals and other deal sites until they do something about their customers accounts getting hacked into and information stolen. It's obvious neither company has shown that they cared much if at all. A guy from Rakuten coming here for a couple days and replying to a few people's posts without giving an update on the entire situation doesn't say much for the company itself. The only way either company will do anything is if these situations effect their bottom lines and they loose business.
As of now they'd rather pass the buck along to the people getting victimized and have them do the work of canceling cards, reporting things to the police and etc.
Add one more. I just recognized fraud charges on my CC after Rakuten purchases. Almost $2,000 Facebook charges made to my credit card. My card number stolen from rakuten, because I know I never linked any payment method to Facebook. plus I didn't use this card any other places besides rakuten in last 5 months. (
Whoa, this is insane. Has anyone put this on their Facebook page or Twitter account. This is some serious breach. Maybe someone should submit this information to CNN to get national attention to put pressure on Buy.com to fix this issue.
I personally just deleted all my CC info in their account and will no longer be using their services. Thanks for the heads up.

I just asked my wife about this deal and she said NO!!!!!!! After I hung up the phone, i said "to HELL with that"! I'M IN FOR TWO!!!
You don't need to wish that you didn't have a wife......you just need to exchange your skirt for her pants.
Same here. I thought the Walmart thing was bad, but this is nuts. Haven't seen any fraudulent charges yet. Thanks to this thread I know what going on though.
Sad part is, I had two credit cards on file. One already canceled due to an unknown charge. The second, just recently closed closed due to an unknown charge. Im very vigilent about my CC info being on a site, clearing cache, not using the copy function with my CC info, etc, and now wonder if my both my cards being here, even though I haven't bought anything recently, may have been the source of the issue
3 cards were stolen in the past months by shopping at Rakuten.
Last week, I used Discover virtual card to purchase a hard drive at Rakuten and got stolen two days after. That card was supposed to be used and valid only at Rakuten. What a shame!
