Received a small charge from this merchant yesterday, and a large attempted charge (caught by fraud detection) today at a Home Depot in Texas (I live in the pacific northwest). If I had to guess I would say someone is using this provider to test stolen card numbers before using them for larger fraudulent purchases.

I received a notice today that my transaction from this company was denied because of lack of funds.Someone tried to charge $7.31 and I had less than that on my card thank goodness.Never heard of this company.Def fraud. SCAM!!!

I review my account daily. As soon as i saw a "preauth" charge from this company, I knew it was bogus and fraud. I called AMEX and they are handling it now. Once the charge hits my account, i will request a refund from AMEX. They state they cover 100% of any fraudulent activity. If i have any issues with AMEX, i will post here again after the fact and advise.

It popped up for me on my AMEX. Had to double check but they are a credit card processor for legitimate businesses. It looks funny as they didn't list the business but after checking purchases from the previous couple of days, we tracked it to a charge we made over the phone with the Scotch Malt Whisky Society. Confirmed with the that it was their processor.

I monitor my card activity with the app and text alerts on transactions so I'm aware of all of my card activity. This charge activity is suspicious and I've reported it to AMEX accordingly. Interestingly, I had a replacement card sent to me several months ago and this charge came in on my old card number rather then my current card; again suggesting that this is a fraudulant charge. If it turns out that this is a legitimate charge, I'm sure my vendor will reach out to me for alternative payment methods.
