Rebatesoft charged my bank account. How do they get my account info?

member profile picture

Just wanted to let you all know that there are charges popping up on people's accounts all over the US for $7.50 from a company called Rebatesoft. All you have to do is dispute it with your bank and cancel your ATM/DEBIT card #. I Google this and many hits came up with the same charge as mine and same company listed. I didn't know where to post this and so I started here, if you need to move it that's fine. I just wanted the word to be out




Rebatesoft seems to me as a company dealing with software.

Yeah, I found a $7.50 charge on my check card too and I called my bank, they think my card has been compromised so they closed the account and issued me a refund. I'm still not sure how they got my info though. Scary out there in the cyber world, should only shop at reputable websites.

yes, I got hit on nov. 9 2008, $7.50 charge. also got hit for some international charges CCBILLEU.COM +18885969 VALETTA MLT and CCBill.com 888-5969279 AZ soon after. this rebatesoft charge could be a test billing site to make sure the card is valid which leads to the sale of our credit card number. folks gotta test drive the card before they really smack it with the bigger charges. credit card was cancelled and I have to send in an afadavit to the card company. yikes. glad I have other cards or I would not be able to charge anything. my advice: don't set up autopays with credit cards because the cards get compromised too easily from shopping online and then you have to cancel all the autopays and possibly miss payments and deal with all that fallout.

WTF? Me too, I got hit twice for $7.50. I called my Bank and they suggested to cancel my card immediately. How did they get my info?

This hit my account today as a preauthorization. It was my debit card and I closed it immediately. Unbelievable and a big bummer. How do they get our stuff?

Rebatesoft billed my VISA 7.50 on November 19. After asking me if I had bought software, etc., VISA said they had no information about the charge but would cancel it. If they didn't know this was going on they should have.

I too had a rebatesoft charge back in November so I canceled my card# and started using a different card from a different bank. Last week I got a notification from this bank (Chase)of a possible fraud attempt. I didn't see the details of the charge but as I recall it was only a buck or two and I think it was listed as some type of subscription related to the New York Times.
Two fraudulent charges in two months on two different cards is too much of a coincidence for me. So either this is a massive CC attack, or someone I'm doing business with is selling my CC number (or is being hacked).

I got hit with the $7.50 charge also, I am disputing it with my card company but they are telling me there is a 45 day dispute period where they can contest it.

I also got the charge. What is up with this? Good idea to clear all cookies and temp files from you system.
