Watch out using CC at BangGood

There was just a report in the Mini Multirotor forums from RcfanJapan that reads
"Do not use the credit card option to pay Banggood. Select the Paypal option and process your Credit card that way.
After placing some orders with Banggood my credit card company had to block several attempts at using my card to buy from various places.
$450 from Bestbuy.
$521 from N2G export.
Were the biggest attempts.
So, please be aware that someone at Banggood is using CC details.
If you are ordering from them, let your CC company know and tell them to block any other transaction not processed by Banggood.

I have never used the credit card other then to pay road tolls in Japan. The first time I used it online was with Banggood and my details were immediately used to attempt to commit fraud.
100% issue with Banggoods CC processing. "

Here's the link so you can see it yourself

I was gonna suggest to the guy that he should move it here but then again it should be posted in every forums to warn people, so I just copied it here.

Tis the Season for scammers

Could be coincidence, but it's quite possible Banggood was hacked and is not intentionally trying to scam cards. Another possibility is that their site developer "rigged" the website so that they have personal access to this info. They probably store card numbers on an internet accessible computer, which in the US is not legal, although BSD Micro did it some years ago and a number of us had the same thing happen, with mysterious attempted charges. Fortunately for me, the bank stopped it, but not for others. We have all these irresponsible businesses to thank for apparently making Paypal both rich, and a mandatory way to do business.
