Club Card vouchers hacked into at Tesco
I tried to pay with my new club card vouchers in Tesco yesterday to be told "they have already been used" "oh no they haven't..said I." They would not accept them and I went out of the shop feeling very upset..more or less called a liar. Eventually I managed to find where my vouchers were listed and it seems someone in London had purloined my vouchers a few days ago. After hours on the telephone changing passwords etc etc and being treated like dirt on one occasion, I decided to look on the Internet to see if any one else had had the same problem. Sure enough...there it was :
"Has Tesco been hacked? Shoppers claim Clubcard vouchers stolen"
Not once did any of the people I spoke to say there was a problem. Tesco had said:
UPDATE: Tesco has issued the following statement about these allegations.
“We have launched a thorough investigation into a small number of incidents and referred the matter to the police. In the meantime, we’d like to ask any customers who believe they’re affected to contact us directly so that we can make sure their accounts are up to date."
Customers can call on 0800 591 688.
So if you hear of anyone with a similar problem please pass the message on.
