I have seen posts scattered around here in various threads and thought it would be helpful to consolidate them and get some discussion here as well as data points on what cards may be easily compromised.
As with many others I purchased lots of gas cards on eBay from SVM Gift Cards for savings. I recently found that one of the Circle K gift cards had about $40 wiped off of it in the past week before I could use them up. I've got about another $700 worth purchased over the past couple of months, various brands, Exxon, Conoco, etc. all of which seem "safer." The Circle K is the only compromised one. But they're all through the same vendor so not really inspiring.
Any suggestions on recourse? SVM has offered no options and Circle K seems equally unwilling/unhelpful. Contemplating just taking the hit and selling them to a gift card reseller like Cardpool.
