    so i got a charge for 4.78 on the credit card to themobileclub.org, pretty sure i didn't make this charge. checkout the first link when searching the mobileclub.org. Makes me feel real good:
    http://800notes.com/Phone.aspx/1-231-225-0410

    anyone out there ever see this company, or any other listed on those pages.

    Should i go through the standard credit dispute, or immediately cancel my card number and get a new one, I'm leaning toward the latter.

    Re: credit charge themobileclub.org

    Kinda scary how people can get your info and exploit it like that... I say start with the credit dispute.

    Here's some more from that thread:

    THEMOBILECLUB.ORG 231-225-0410 is a fake front company that is part of a large group of fraudulent websites processing hijacked card data into cash. The operation is ran by a multi year organized crime syndicate operating from Eastern Europe.

    The fake sites are set up exclusively to process stolen card data, and launder the charges into cash. The stolen funds are then wired to various banks in Bulgaria, Latvia, Kyrgstan, and Cyprus. Some of the stolen funds have ended up in the Ukraine.

    This crime syndicate recruits cyber-mules either through fake job adds, or by targeting online posted resumes at careerbuilders.com, Monster, etc. They masquerade as legitimate software companies from various countries in Europe. The duped cyber-mules are then instructed to set up domestic LLCs / Corps, open a business bank account, and obtain merchant gateway processing services specifically through authorize.net. The crime syndicate manages the associated website and uses the services set up by the cyber-mules to launder hijacked credit cards into cash. Every single charge processed via these sites are from stolen card data. It is estimated that they may process 2 million cards a year, and may have 40 to 50 fraud sites operating at any given time.

    If you receive a charge from one of these fraud entities, it is imperative that you report the charge as FRAUDULENT, and cancel and replace the card. They will keep charging it, also, check your prior statements for small fraud charges.

    Also, please file a report at Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) | File a Complaint

    I need a fraud victim to post any state abbreviation that was listed on the line item fraud charge. Or to contact me on the forum listed below and send me the transaction number on the charge so I can have the merchant account terminated.

    THEMOBILECLUB.ORG 231-225-0410 is specifically addressed on this page:
