My parent’s came down to Canberra two weekends ago to visit me for my birthday, and while they were in Belconnen, my father bought a leather jacket from the jacket store currently located in the old Cash Converters building next to Zeffirelli’s Restaurant. He paid for it using credit. This is the only place he has used his credit card in some time.
A couple of days later, Virgin Credit called and asked my father if he booked several flights on Tiger Airlines, because his card activity looked suspicious. My father knew nothing about it until Virgin called. Virgin have said since Tiger Airlines is a new company, they don’t have very good credit card security at the moment and credit card number theives are booking flights.
My father has the card, but it is now useless as he has cancelled his account. Virgin Credit are currently investigating this further. Let this be a warning to anyone who purchases anything from such “temporary” stores. Don’t pay with Credit!
