Man, they'll sue you sooner or later for bad publicity
The odds might be a little greater for a class action lawsuit against Rakuten for possible inappropriate data security or possibly inadequate responsiveness to its customers on the subject. However, we're mainly interested in telling the truth, quantifying the magnitude of the problem, protecting others, and getting the source of the problem resolved
. However, I'm sure you're right that many companies would do anything to eliminate the whistle-blower and let the problem continue and grow.
We're not saying "don't buy from Rakuten", but we are saying that everyone might consider all the available payment options to reduce or eliminate their personal risk. Thanks to the many messages from those who feel that we've either helped them catch the fraud attempt quicker, or in helping them reduce any potential problems down the road.
