|Today 02:50 PM|
A day or two after I made a purchase on Rakuten (merchant was Beach Camera), I found this article and changed my password and deleted my cc #.
Is it possible for them to somehow still retrieve my cc# info if it is no longer saved?

Add me to the list. Bought PS Plus deal last month and the read about their fraud. Officially had a $900+ purchase attempt from Best Buy. Fortunately bank declined it and now I have to get a new card.
Not sure how this hasn't been resolved. Can't we officially block that merchant on this site?

Ugh this is scary hearing all of this. I had no idea that this was going on with Rakuten.com.
I might just have to setup an alert with all the credit bureaus. Luckily I've been using strong passwords for sites I access that have sensitive information and I even have a two-step verification for my gmail account. So hopefully Rakuten.com and all the other sites send out email verifications when an email address or password change is attempted.

Your theory is correct, I am guessing that my email and password were similar to the two sites.

(1) Identity thieves obtained credit card #'s and SSN #'s from some Rakuten Customers
[Ref: News Story & NJ Police Interview http://www.northjersey
[Ref: Additionally http://www.bergendispa
[Ref: 'scotthall3411' Post #462, etc.]
from original post.
I also read
The Bogota Police Department told NorthJersey.com, "The victims' names, Social Security numbers, dates of birth and credit card information were used to open accounts at online equipment suppliers." Additionally, several thousand dollars in purchases were also made at five online stores, and totaled around $10,000.
I am not seeing new accounts on my credit report. But I am just being paranoid after reading this.
And my question remains unanswered.. ... How is it possible for them to get SSNfrom rakuten when no one ever proivde one to rakuten..

Back in June my account at merchant #1 was compromised - someone changed the contact email address then placed an unauthorized purchase. A few days ago, my account at merchant #2 was hit - someone bought an e-gift card. It did not occur to me until now that the two events were not only related, they were both linked to Rakuten. Upon checking my records, sure enough, I made purchases at Rakuten days before each incident.
It looks like the thieves used my log in credentials stored on Rakuten to gain access to my accounts at other merchants. Since they strike only when purchases are made at Rakuten, they must have the info in hand and have the ability to monitor purchase activities. An insider job for sure.
For what it is worth, the email addresses used by the thieves were email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org

May be it is it because you requested to open new credit card ?
I see their official reply to this situation here : http://consumerist.com/2013/06/10...seriously/
I also recently purchased from this site but I deleted my saved credit card info as soon as order was placed. Hope fully all goes well
