Anyone seen or heard about any suspicious credit/debit card transactions from PTI Europe ?

One has appeared on my Visa card for £79.95 that I'm fairly confident has nothing to do with me :shock: :shock:

JUst read that digital spy link on this doesnt shed any light on it really looks like its a scam or a middle man for payment processing does it tie in with anything you bought on the date it appears on your statement

Nope...:?

Depending what you read, they may or may not be the new payment gateway for a whole bunch of e-tailers such as Amazon, Yahoo and many software subscriptions so from that perspective you could suddenly get a bunch of stuff being 'renewed' through a previously unheard of payment company.

Personally I have very little on 'auto-renewal' and certainly have not bought anything online for that kind of money......the mystery continues (and I've had my card put on hold and the payment reversed :wink: )

the monkeys at these card processing merchant banks make mistakes all the time with the info that goes onto card statements,

when i was working for a dotcom, the processing bank put a completely different phone number into the info that appears on statements, resulting in another company getting lots of phone calls which were ment for our customer service,

we would also get interesting faxes with lots of card numbers and the owners names and addresses, which had been checked for fraud by the bank for another retailer, but faxed back to us instead of the other retailer,
