In my case, they attempted to charge 5.00$ and then promptly refund it on my CC. However, there was another charge immediately after for approximately 42.00$ to origins.com. This site seems to be the place to test stolen information.
What is it?
Someone charged $5 to TEAMFANSHOP, had to cancel my card. Thank goodness for Chase Fraud Alert!
FRG*TEAMSHOP - Attempted to charge $5.00 to my card. Bank refused the charge, but looks like they are fishing to see if the card was valid or not in an attempt to charge other items. Shortly after the teamshop charge popped up, several other charges were attempted on the same card.
Just got a text alert for $5.00 from FRG*TEAMFANSHOP, one saying my card has been approved for that amount and another saying it has be declined for $5.00. Someone trying to be sneaky, thank goodness for text alerts. What IDIOTS! Yay now I get to wait for a new card...
I too had a $5.00 charge and reversal from FRG-TEAMFANSHOP-877-833-7397-FL. Saw it today, I just called my bank and asked them to verify if it was a purchase made with my bank card or via a routing/checking account number. Thankfully it was a debit card purchase and I cancelled my bank card IMMEDIATELY. I did a google search on the charge which thankfully brought me to this site and saved me! Thanks everyone! I've made a few online purchases recently and have used my card for gas and one ATM machine...it's so scary- I swear I will be getting in the habit of using cash now! This is crazy!
Just reported a fradulent charge. Site is www.footballfanatics.com and number is 877-833-7397.
Richard from the lost & fraud prevention department was extremely helpful. His number is 855-222-2564 (ext 8384).
No name please but this frg teamfanshop obviously is a place to generate cc numbers until one works & then they charge higher amounts. Be vigilant in checking all charges, all the time !
I just had $5,000 worth of charges show up on my debit card last Thursday (1/09/14). I caught it in time that it was still processing. There were 26 charges ranging from $150-$200. I live in Washington state, it's coming Florida!
Hi - so glad I found these posts. I have had my credit card charged twice from this site (FRG*teamfanshop 877-833-7397 fl) . once on 29-dec-2013 and charged $365-00 and again just now 05-01-2014 and charged $325-00 even though I called my bank had first item disputed thought that was the end of it, BUT... after being hit again with the FRAUDULENT charge and have that item under dispute , I have now requested to cancel that credit card and issue new one.
I had a $5 charge from Team Fan Shop FL, which was reversed. I called and they said their system recognized the attempted charge as fraudulent and had it immediately reimbursed. They said they did not have any more information, but said my card had been compromised and I should have it cancelled/replaced. Then I had a $60 charge from ulta.com which I never purchased anything from. Called my bank right after that to have the charges stopped & card cancelled... I believe my card information was stolen when I purchased an item from a website called Teespring. A day later the fraudulent charges began.
I came home from work and checked my bank account. The FRG*teamfanshop FL was charging $5 and reversing $5, then there was a $100 charge for perfect world/arc in CA. I reported it as fraud to my bank. I'm being issued a new card. Why are there people like this in the world?
The same thing happened to me. I got a $5 charge and a $5 reversal charge. I told the bank but they said that the charge was reversed so they didn't worry about it. Then I was charged $257.42, which I had to beg to get refunded. I'm going to call them and warn them against future purchases. I guess the $5 is a test to see if the account works. If we're ALL having this problem, can't the banks be on a lookout for this kind of thing?
Update! FRG TEAMFANSHOP AKA Fanatics. They asked me for all of my info only to tell me they wouldn't give me any of their info on this fraudulent charge. Really? The other 2 charges were from REVIVE SCINCARE and BECCA COSMETICS, they were helpful and luckily we caught it before items were shipped and those transactions will be refunded!!!!! Beware of TEAMFANSHOP AKA FANATICS, 1-877-833-7397, 1-855-438-0679 & Loss Prevention Rep. Millie 1-855-222-2564. They were all useless idiots. I think something fishy is goin on here. They refused to help me in any way and kept putting me on hold thinkin I would tire and give up. I've filed a fraud claim as well as affidavit with my bank. I gave them a chance to make it right. I'm going to my local police department here shortly and maybe then will they give them the info needed. This is a felony people! Almost $1,000.00 of fraudulent charges! Consumer Beware!
I received an email from Capital One for suspected fraud activity. After verifying all of my info, someone tried to make an online charge to FRG Teamfanshop for $245 but the charge was declined because they were not able to input the correct 3-digit code. Thankfully I got the alert and was able to cancel the card and get it reissued. Very scary!
So i had a $5.00 charge on my debit card from Frg*teamfanshop 877-833-7397 Fl...and it was then refunded immediately. I called my bank and had my card canceled. I have been trying to figure out were they got my info and the only thing that came out of my acct. today was Netflix. did anyone else have a Netflix come out today...maybe there system is breached???
I was charged 89.90 from this company my bank fraud dept caught it. Also I had to cancel my bank card. Tried to ship to Masadonia are you serious I have never heard of the place!!!!
I received an email from Chase Sapphire questioning if I had charged to merchant FRG"TEAMFANSHOP" for $10.00 This charge is fraudulent. I called CHASE immediately and the security department closed the number. They are sending me a new card with a different number tomorrow. They had been monitoring my account since that charge was placed. Another charge for $133.00 had been attempted at merchant DHGATE after my account was "flagged" and it had been denied. YAY CHASE!! The credit card companies are getting really good at spotting fraudulent charges, thank goodness. They also try hard to protect the honest consumer because they want to keep our business. I feel more secure knowing there is a safety net in place for the credit card users. Plus, if you have good credit, they will never make you pay for a charge that is not yours.
un fraude que no se como lo hacen pero te llegan cargos a nombre FRG menos mal que yo solo uso trjeta para interne con poco dinero FRAUDEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
I was contacted today by Discover for a questionable $5 charge from FRGTEAMFANSHOP. My card has now been cancelled and will be reissued, thank you Discover! We ordered from Fanatics at Christmas on a Chase card and that order also came through on the Chase statement as FRGTEAMFANSHOP but at the time it was legit. We won't order again from Fanatics to buy team apparel or Olympics apparel, too bad. Seems like a breach within its retail site using a small $5 charge and when it goes through a larger amount appears later. Hope this fraud gets stopped soon.
There was fraud alert on my citi card with merchant name FRG*TEAMFANSHOP of $5. Luckily, citi didn't process the charge until I authorized.
Just reported a fradulent charge. Site is www.footballfanatics.com and number is 877-833-7397.
Aldred from the lost & fraud prevention department was extremely helpful. The direct number to the lost & fraud prevention is 855-222-2564.
The $218.27 has been credited back, the order has been canceled - nothing had actually shipped yet.
Called my card and disputed the charge, requested that card be canceled, and a new card issued.
A charge with $0.01 DLLS from this merchant. The bank put on hold my account and cancelled my credit card when I called to confirm it was not mine. Thank God Bank of America caught this one for me before any fraud charges.
When I got the alert today from Chase that they had declined a transaction for FRG TEAMFANSHOP for over $400, I called immediately and cancelled the card. The rep said that it popped up because they used the wrong expiration or # on signature strip. Since my expiration was April 2014 on the old card, I am thinking this may be related to the Walmart or Target breaches that happened prior to my card's expiration.
This is still going on! I paid Rightsource prescription a small copay and on the same day a 5.00 cgarge from FTG this happened on 2/17/14. I looked up the company and found this website. I have no idea how they got my card number. I called AMMEX immediately and canceled the card. Never putting my card on line again!
You’ll see something like a $5.00 charge appear for a short time from FRG*TeamFanShop 877-833-7397 FL and then disappear – it’s apparently a test. Then you start getting whacked for larger amounts from oddball places – see this link: http://www.whatsthatcharge.com/FRG-TEAMFANSHOP
My charge showed the FRG*TeamFanShop 877-833-7397 for $5.00. It was there at 5:00 AM and gone by 8:00. BoA confirmed that it was attempted & reversed. The Ph # goes to Fanatics Retail Group in Jax… www.fanatics.com Al in security at Fanatics indicated that they are aware of this activity by some outside entity who uses their site to test small charges & that Fanatics automatically reverse the charges based on fraudulent address / email criteria in their system.
It appears your best option, when this happens, is to CANX & ReIssue your bank cards. Big Time Pain!..
Received a fraudulent charge from FRG TEAMFANSHOP for $70.95 on 1/23/14. I have never been to their website or purchased anything from any of their associated sites. Citibank is refusing to do anything about the charge as it is "still pending" as of today. They told me that they want to wait to "see if they return the money". Yeah, the people that stole my money are going to just return it. I guess we will wait to see what happens.
WHILE EXAMINING MY CREDIT CARD BILLING I NOTICED AN UNEXPECTED CHARGE OF $110.59 . ON GOOGLE I DISCOVERED MANY FRAUDULENT CHARGES ATTRIBUTED TO THIS COMPANY-- WITH REPEAT CHARGES . I CONTACTED MY CC COMPANY WHICH IS INVESTIGATING . THEY RE-ISSUED A NEW CARD IMMEDIATELY AND INITIATED A FRAUD REPORT .
An attempt was made on my card for a FRG TEAMFANSHOP and a $5.00 fee was placed on hold but will be returned. Spoke to a customer service rep whom was very friendly and helpful @ 1-877-833-7397 based out of Florida. The other 2 charges were unsuccessful in getting ahold of anyone, BECCA COSMETICS in SanFrancisco, CA for $417.95 and REVIVE SKINCARE in Houston, TX for $485.06. With the help of my bank I have filed a freaud claim and hopefully the entire amount of $908.01 will be credited to my account. I hope my info was helpful. I only caught this because I check my account on a daily basis. Oh! And I had to cancel my card. Later today I will be going to my local bank and signing an affidavit to begin the investigation to file charges against these creeps!!!!!
My cc was charged and refunded by 5.97 USD today. Unfortunately I had not been checking my cc statements recently (while being abroad with no Internet) and my bank did not suspend other transactions. So it appeared that about 300 USD were already stolen about 1 week ago. Of course I blocked my card immediately but it was too late now because almost all the money are gone. And I doubt that I will be ever refunded because I live in Ukraine and my bank does not care about clients much. I wonder which hacked website I used...
I was charged by this company and couldn't imagine what I would have bought from them. But it turns out that they have several web presences, all which use the same (different) name to report on the billing statements.
In my case, I realized after calling them (and very carefully avoiding too much identifying information to avoid fraudulent use of my identity) that I had ordered a pair of shorts from one of their subsidiaries.
Fraudulent charge!!, after reviewing my bank statement and seeing a charge from FRG TEAMFANSHOP I immediately called and disputed the charge because I never ordered anything from this company, the customer service rep looked into the charge for me and said he would give me the money back, and also stated that the order placed was being shipped to Italy??? Wth? $158.00. Had to close my card account!
$10.00 pending charge from this company. When I called, the woman said that I needed to give her my card number to verify the charge and she was surprised that it was a $10 charge and not a $5 charge. I called the bank and while reviewing my account noticed a $1 charge from TransUnion and 2 charges totaling $70 from NewEgg.com. Cancelled the card.
just checked my checking account and I found an unauthorized charge of $5.00 from a FRG TEAMFANSHOP and immediately after that 2 more charges of $417.95 and $485.06? Wow! Im calling my online bank asap and heddin to my bank as soon as they open in the morning. How could this have happened? A total of $908.01 in unauthorized charges. Ill post on the end result as soon as I can.
I used by debit card at 6:30 am on my way to work when I went to lunch at 11 am it was declined when tried to use called bank and team fan shop had charged me $5.00 at 10:08 and at 10:11 they refunded the $5.00 my bank saw this as fradulent and stopped any futher transactions with my debit card. I had never heard of team fan shop so I goggled it when got home and found this page! Infuriates me! Now the hassle of getting new card on Monday can't access any of my money for whole weekend companies/people that do this makes me so mad! Glad my bank was on top of there game!!!
While I am not alone in finding the mysterious $5 charge from Team Fan Shop-FRG on my recent update from Chase Bank VISA, I have learned that it's merely a "test-charge" and a precursor to many more unexplained problems. If I had simply ignored it or was unaware, the hacker/thief who stole my credit card information would be selling my card all over the world (with many others) to the highest bidder. Apparently, the $5 charge is used to buy a gift certificate in an on line store, but the hacker/thief doesn't care about the certificate, which is quickly voided, because the real money is in the selling of my card info.
I don't know how my information was stolen, but I am thankful that Chase Bank's Fraud unit was on top of it. As for the Team Fan Shop-FRG, I know they are not the thieves: they make and sell t-shirts for sporting events and the NFL & NBA stores.
After canceling my card and speaking with the Chase and the Team Fan Shop, I contacted Experian and Equifax to put a freeze or monitoring on my credit. The real pain of this little problem is not knowing how much real information was a stolen, because it could be far worse than $5 if cards were opened, car loans made, and other things bought in my name (without my authorization).
Noticed a $5.00 charge that was automatically refunded. It didn't show as pending. The only way I knew about it was VISA alert service that tells you if your card has been used over the internet. I called my bank and cancelled the card. Won't let these crooks get a second ahead of me. If you see this charge handle ASAP.
I got a $62 charge from TEAMFANSHOP, had to cancel my card. Chase Fraud Alert sent me an email. Good job!
FOX Sports Official Online Store.
I had a fraudulent charge appear on my credit card from FRG*TEAMFANSHOP for $5 and then the charge was reversed. Thank goodness Chase caught this before any real damage could be done. I had to cancel my credit card and wait for a new one now. I am going to start using cash more frequently when I can for purchases.
I woke up this morning to 2 fan shop charges then 5 charges to a centmobile.com all equal to $60. I'm glad I found in time before they tried to get more!
Citicard was used fraudulently to make a purchase from FRG*TEAMFANSHOP today for $5. These thieves are STILL at it, why can't they be stopped?????
FRG*TEANFANSHOP 32254 FL fraudulent hacker charged 5.00 to my bank debit card, ORGIN.COM EA charged $72.54, www.EA.COM/CS EA charged 36.86 and $42.40 --ALL within the past 2-days! I caught it in time, and cancelled my card while all charges were still pending. It appears that these companies are probably all connected, I'm not sure. But, be on the look-out & check your accounts everyday! This is really a shame!
Two charges from FRG*TEAMFANSHOP for $5 and then both charges were reversed. I called the bank and immediately cancelled my card, had hubby cancel his too.
Bank suggested not storing credit card information on online sites and they tend to be easier to hack than most bank sites.
We have never ordered from the fanatics.com company and their loss prevention people weren't terribly helpful but I don't believe they are the ones doing this. I think their site is just an easy one to use for these scammers. Definitely a problem but oh well. Glad we check our bank account daily.
Found this charge on my Bank America credit card two days ago : 2/6/14 FRGTEAMFANSHOP -$139 2/6/14 FRGTEAMFANSHOP $139 These hackers are using this website to run a test transaction before having a field day ordering from other online websites.
Ran a Yahoo search and found this website. Saw these charges reported as fraud, and cancelled my credit card right away. BEFORE real damage was done.
THANK YOU whatsthischarge.com and everyone who reported this fraud ! Much easier to catch fraud before it becomes serious. And if you are a victim of fraud, make sure to call the valid companies where charges were made and have them cancel orders not yet processed. Last case of fraud someone used my card to book a $3500 all expenses paid trip to Aruba. Travelocity was REALLY happy to hear from me and cancel that jokers trip. Neither my credit card company nor the police bothered to call them and cancel. No wonder credit card fraud is running rampant. No one bothers to even cancel their purchases.
Where are these people getting our credit card numbers from ? I did not shop at Target this year. And this is the second time my credit card has been jacked. Is all this recent jacking due to banks and credit card companies outsourcing ? Has anyone talked to anyone without a foreign accent when reporting or closing down a credit card ? Perhaps it's time to demand banks keep our personal info PRIVATE. At least within the country.l
I was hit with a charge for $158.21 today by FRG*TEAMFANSHOP, FL. IT seems this is a fraud site/system, I had never heard of them before today. Thankfully Chase declined the charged immediately and sent me text/email to confirm. Waiting for new card now. I'm amazed how these people continue to perpetrate fraud again and again with no consequences?
They (FRG TEAMFANSHOP) attempted to charge $5.63 to my credit card. Luckily the fraud department stopped it. But I have had to cancel my card. I had never even heard of them before this, let alone tried to purchase something. Must be hard in retail if they have to resort to fraudulent activities.
FRG*TEAMFANSHOP 32254 FL ORGIN.COM EA WWW.EA.COM/CS EA Have all fraudently charged my card within the past 2-days! I caught the charges while they were still pending, Thank God! Watch your bank accounts everyday and Be on the lookout for these crooks! It appears they're frauding a lot of people. This is so sickening!
Had 4 charges of $10.00 each from FRG TEAMFANSHOP. Chase flagged them, texted me, called me, emailed me. Then a charge from Abercrombie & Fitch for $245 hit the card. All transactions were cancelled, card was cancelled.
Chase sent a text this morning about a suspicious charge -- turned out to be "FRG*TEAMFANSHOP" -- not my charge. Other fraudulent charges made as well, all today. Good catch Chase! New card on its way.
Today I had the same $5.00 charge FRGTEAMFANSHOP 877 833 7397 FL and then it was reversed, then there were 5 - $25.00 pending changes for Facebook. FACEBK PAYMENT 650 543 7818 CA Debit Card has been cancelled. Such a Pain...ugh
I also just received a charge for $5.94 from this company on my cc disappointed I have to cancel my card now. I don't know what it is such a small amount.
Concerning Fantasic Retail Group Purchase (also known online as - FRG Team Fanshop.com:
The whole experience with this company has been a nightmare. I have 3 grandsons in Nebraska, for whom I purchased 3 jackets, on 12/7/13, for christmas gifts, with a promised delivery date no later than the 15th. That would have giving me time to send the gifts to Nebraska. The order did not arrive, and no communication from the company was forthcoming. So I contacted the company on the 17th, and was promised a delivery on the 19th, which did not happen. On my 2nd call to the company, on the 19th, after an hour wait on the phone, a supervisor promised delivery on the 20th… I told her if the jackets did not arrive on the 20th I would cancel the order. Again, they did not arrive. However, on the 20th I was notified by PayPal that my payment for one of the three jackets was refunded by Team Fashion Shop, in the amount of $76.46. The company never bothered to notify me that the jacket was out of stock. On the 21st I canceled the order, in writing, online. Now, today, the 23rd, the company tells me the other 2 jackets were shipped out, for delivery on the 24th. Go figure.
When the jackets arrive I expect the company to pay for the return, and refund the entire amount of my order. Specifically, $162.16 ($238.62 minus the refund of $76.46). The shipping and handling for a canceled order is, also, the company's responsibility. Not mine.
I bank with Huntington and I have mobile alerts. $5 was taken out and then immediately out back. I googled teamfanshop and this site was the first to come up. I immediately called and cancelled my card. The guy on the phone told me I was the 2nd person he had talked to in the past 30 minutes with the same problem. The most recent purchase I made with my card was Speedway this morning. I don't know where these hackers are getting their info from but I'm so grateful for mobile alerts.
On 9/4/2014 2:54 AM, a transaction in the amount of $625.54 was declined at: FRG*TEAMFANSHOP, FL They are still making fraudulent charges. Chase says they are researching it. Chase rejected their charge automatically.
On was charged 5 dollars by FRGTEAMFANSHOP then credited right back, this happened 2 times, then i was charged 1116 dollars by apple store online after that i was charged again the 5 dollars by FRGTEAMFANSHOP and credited back again by this point i had contacted my bank and they told me they were still trying to process charges through online stores but they had already been on alert and had put my debit card on hold. I had to cancel the card. This is indeed fraud and you need to call and cancel your card. Last time i used my card was ordering chinese food, so who knows who it really was there is no way to find out, just call your bank and they will take care of it within 12 hours.
I have a preauthorization charge sitting in my account from FRG team fan shop right now. I am on the phone with them now. Seems to be a trend. I am going to let them know they have a major problem.
Am EX just denied an attempt by someone to make a purchase of $134.93 at FRG TEAM FAN SHOP, a place I have never heard of and never used. Thnx Am EX for your fraud alert!
Ugh..my discover card just called and stated I had a $5.00 charge from FRG teamshop and then a $400.00 charge to some place else!! The only thing I did was used my card a couple days ago at prettybabygifts.com and don't know if they are fraud or not yet..my credit card company is going to check into it and if I don't receive my order I will have to call them back and let them know! Thank goodness the Discover Fraud Prevention caught this and is sending all new cards!!
Today someone use my credit card with this three transfers, 81,88 from benchmark merchandis, 254,98 and 693,59 from FRG*TEAMFANSHOP, i do not buy this stuffs, also have a long time i dont use my credit card on the internet, i am from Brazil. I called my bank, but he not pronucied yet.
Just saw a $5 charge pending on my bank acct and a refund of it, I googled the company and found this site, so I called my bank, reported fraud and canceled my card right away before they can buy other shit with it.
I was just contacted today by the fraud department for my credit card company. They detected a suspicious on-line charge of $0.00 from FRG Teamfanshop this morning. I have never heard of this company nor did I use my credit card for any purchases today. Definitely a fraudulent charge!
Thanks for the Chase Fraud Alert! I got an email from them saying that I FRG*TEAMFANSHOP charge $5.00 on my credit card. I confirmed to Chase that I didn't charge anything to this company and I have my card with me. Chase is issuing me a new card!
A $5 charge attempt was made with my 53 bank debit card with transaction description FRGTEAMFANSHOP, 877-833-7397, FL. The same was refunded with transaction description FRGTEAMFANSHOP, 866-687-3305, FL.
I had already registered for Identity theft protection with 53 bank. They called immediately to enquire about this transaction, since they suspected this as fraud transaction. They flagged it before it could go through and marked it immediately as Fraudulent. Good job 53 Bank!
I'm very concerned about when and who, uses my card. So I have my alerts settings in Chase in 0.01. While at work, I got a text saying that someone used my card for $5.00. I knew I had my card with me, so immediately I transfered ALL my checkings account money into my savings account with the Chase App and left it only with $5.00. Guess what? 30 mins later, this hacker tried to make a $250.00 purchase from Walmart.com from Arkansas. HA- HA- HA and the card obviously got declined cause I had only left $5.00 in my account =) They thought they could outsmart me....Then, Chase send me an email about those weird charges made to my account and I immediately called them and got my card cancelled and issued a new one. All I remember was making a purchase at my local Walmart, gas station from Walmart, and an online purchase from alieexpress.com, last night. So it could be any one of them. What I don't understand is that if these assholes are buying online with our card, don't these websites do an online confirmation to see if the addresses match? Or isn't it easier for the FBI to catch them if they are using their own home address for the shipping? This needs to stop and those hackers need to find a BETTER JOB!!!
I received a email from chase fraud protection services. It stated a $64.50 was charged from FRG Teamfanshop. I called customer support and they informed me it was an online attempt but the exp. date was entered incorrect. Please check your account and your emails.
Same story. What is the link between us? I see a lot of Chase cards mentioned and mine was also a Chase. The only places I used this card was for PayPal and Amazon. I'm going to contact my state Attorney General's office. This is quite wide-spread.
May, 2014 - A charge was just initiated to my credit card for a small amount $10.00, that was not completed (the money was not actually transferred yet) from FRG*TEAMFANSHOP. I did some Internet research and found the website SurfFanatics.com, which states in their Important Information about Payment--
"Please note, the charge on your statement will appear from FRG*Teamfanshop."
I'm a 62 year old man with no interest in surfing at all, and I live halfway across the U.S. from Florida (the home of SurfFanatics.com). I did some research, including this helpful website, and found that FRG*TEAMFANSHOP is apparently a staging ground for testing stolen credit card information.
I immediately called the fraud department of my credit card issuer, and even while I was on the phone with the fraud-department representative, the first fraudulent charge on my credit card appeared, for $192 and some cents, for "DISNEY" something-or-other, a charge or purchase I did not make. This strongly indicates to me (and also to the fraud-department investigator) that FRG*TEAMFANSHOP actually is an operation to test stolen credit card information to see if the card is valid, before making an actual fraudulent purchase that is processed.
So beware of anything in your financial records or credit card account that is labeled with FRG*TEAMFANSHOP
I was astonished at how soon after this minor test charge of $10.00 was made as a pending transaction (not actually collected, no money transferred, because the fraudsters were trying to merely test the card, before reversing the charge to cover their staging-ground tracks) the first fraudulent charge for over $192.00 appeared on my account.
I hope this helps someone else. Best wishes--
Steve, New Mexico US
Similar to other comments, my card had three attempted $5 charges, which were all declined, thanks to Wells Fargo fraud detection. I have cancelled the credit card that was used.
$5 charge from "FRG*TEAMFANSHOP 877 833 7397 FL" showed up in my bank account today, then was refunded right away. A $110 charge followed, which appears to be from Western Union, "WU 877 989 3268 MO". I called Western Union and they have no record. So I called my bank (Wells Fargo) to report fraud, file a claim and replace my card.
This "FANSHOP" site appears to be a platform to test stolen account info, then once it works with a small amount (trying to avoid fraud detection?) they are able to process a larger amount under some other guise.
Question is, where/how are they getting our info? This appears to have happened to people all over the country. My most recent online purchase using this card was through theCHIVE. Anyone else? Otherwise I've had purchases at various merchants in the Twin Cities, MN area.
Wow this is no coincidence! I just had this FRG.Teamfan shop charged $5, reversed it then tried $39.95 and then Chase threw the fraud alert. Either this is an inside job from Chase or somebody has hacked their database because these dates are very close to each other and the same banking institution.
I was charged 5usd by TEAMFANSHOP on 12/2/14.. I realised it's a fraud, and before I even wanted to report to the bank I was charged 188.90 from another merchant called STOP&GO INTERNATIONAL.. I called them immediately and they are unaware of this transaction and they discovered it's done from Vietnam while I'm in Russia.. Be careful on this culprits.. I don't know how the credit card info's are obtained...!!!!
Got off work this morning, checked bank account... nothing out of the ordinary. Woke up after a few hours and (as part of my routine after getting up, usually) checked bank account... Good thing I'm compulsive about that! I found a $5 charge and a reversal for this CHKCARDFRG*TEAMFANSHOP 877 833 7397 FL, followed by a charge at walmart.com for $107.87. My first instinct was to ask my husband what he purchased and as soon as he denied any recent purchase I got on the phone to the bank. Wells Fargo was able to determine which card was compromised and that all of the charges were manually entered rather than swiped.
While sitting on hold through this process, I googled and found this site and all of its useful information.
Charges flagged as fraudulent, card cancelled and replacement ordered... and then I saw the suggestion of contacting the merchant as well.
Apparently, the thief is a Star Wars fan because he/she had ordered the Complete Set on Blue Ray/DVD. Sadly, they wont be receiving that order.
For what it's worth, my husband's card was used at Target in December... as well as a few other places that we shopped for Christmas.
I had a fraudulent charge approved under this name for 5.00 on my CC - immediately before a charge of 145.00. Fortunately, Chase caught it and declined it before they could do more damage. If you see a charge with this code on your statement, report it immediately, it's definitely fraud.
I have texts set up to alert me when any charges are made online. Received the text and immediately looked it up. The amount was $5 and i called the number associated on my bank statement. It sounded very fishy when I called and they put me on hold. they asked for my address and i gave them a fake one bc I just felt something was off. I was then transferred to their "loss prevention" guy who proceeded to tell me that hackers attempted to "test" my card to see if the charge went through. He was very friendly and talkative and I just felt like he was stalling trying to keep me on the phone, and he had the nerve to say "if you trust me, you can give me the card number and I can look it up for you to see what exactly happened". i immediately hung up and called my bank to cancel my card. DON'T GIVE THE PEOPLE ANY INFORMATION, JUST CALL YOUR CARD COMPANY AND REPORT IT AND GET A NEW CARD!!!
Had about 20 charges of $5 each, along with several other charges from other places, like restaurants, etc. Although they nearly wiped out my checking account, the bank caught it and emailed me. They will be refunding my fraudulent charges and issuing a new card for me. I would never call the place that is charging the fraudulent charges. Go through the bank.
My Credit Card was charged for $10 and Chase fraud detection closed my account today. When I logged into my account I saw that the $10 charge was refunded or cancelled or whatever. If the govt is aware of such charges why cant they just shut this place down !!
ANYTHING FROM TEAM FAN SHOP 18778337397... CANCEL CREDIT CARD AND GET A NEW ONE..... TRUST ME... ITS FRAUD..... CALL YOUR BANK....
I had an FRG*Teamfanshop show up on my bank statement today. My bank's website was down from 11:59PM 1-17 supposedly until 7:30AM on 1-21. Thank goodness for text alerts! It showed I was negative $40! I managed to get into the website and saw a $5 charge from the above mentioned company that was promptly returned. But after that was $899.03 worth of charges from RENTSBOOKS.com, VALOREBOOKS, and TEXTBOOKRUSH.com!!! My bank was vigilant and called me but I have been getting calls from all over the country saying I have been approved for payday loans that I never applied for and didn't answer. I called 911 to file a report for my bank. After the deputy left my house I checked my voice mail and called my bank back. They have cancelled my debit card and are returning the money but this didn't have to happen if every reputable website required the security code on every sale. I had used this card on Facebook, Sprint, Dish and Sportsman's Guide websites recently and have no idea of where the security breach might occurred!
Got a call from a risk management company; checked my camden national bank account and lo and behold, 5$ charge from teamfanshop in FL... called to have them cancel the debit card immediately before anything happened. I thought to check my paypal account as well and there was a 5$ charge from teamfanshop on there too!!! Both placed today!! How did they get both of my accounts?? The one on paypal was charged using my paypal debit card as a credit. I do not type the paypal debit numbers in online.. so it's like they have some kind of number generator stealing our cards or something. The camden was a visa and the paypal was a mastercard... strange...and scary
Someone attempted to charge my credit card as "FRG*TEAMFANSHOP, FL" in the amount of $198.82. My bank automatically declined the charge, and sent me a fraud alert. There was also a fraudulent charge as "SP * MELODYEHSANI" in the amount of"$168.00. My bank removed that charge after calling me.
$5.00 charge on my debit card. Never heard of this company. Have charges totaling $1300 from backcountry.com, medieval something a nd chili's. Funny thing is chili s is last place the card was no t in my possession.
I have an alert for all CC transaction for my chase card and got an alert for $5.00 charge from FRG*TEAMFANSHOP. When I logged to chase site saw $5.00 refund also. Called chase and cancelled the card and getting replacement card. Good that my alert helped to catch this fraud and thanks for this site and all your inputs.
I have the same experience as most here--$5.00 charge from this company in Florida. I live in Japan and I did not charge anything from this company. Lucky my bank called and alerted me, however I had to cancel my card, which is inconvenient (to say the least). I am extraordinarily careful when I do use my cc on the internet. I am in awe how they got my cc number! The US government will take action I hope, seems many people are having the same problem with severe complications! I am posting in hope the law will take notice of this company (because of several complaints!) and shut them down
Same issue. I received an email alert today from Citibank saying that there was a $10 charge that appeared to be fraudulent from FRG TEAMFANSHOP. I called Citi immediately and cancelled my card. Right before this charge was made, I used the card for Gas. Obviously I can't be sure but I am guessing that the gas station pump had a card reader in it. It is crazy to me that so many people have had fraud issues with this company. What can we do? I am going to call the local police to see if they have any advice.
I received a text alert today Feb. 5,2014 for a purchase made on my Debit Card from FRG. Team Fanshop. I never heard of this place. someone made 15 transactions with my card at different websites. I thought Websites were secured? How can you use someones card numbers? Makes no sense!!50.90! I want my money back! All in all they all got me for about 1,00 dollars!
Wow! Reviewed my credit card statement online. Saw the complaints here after reviewing my cc statement. These guys work with NFLShop which is the site that I ordered jerseys and other Hawks stuff from. Yes, they are in Florida. Everytime I call them (3x in the last month) there is a different person with a very wierd name. I do not like how they pre-charge us prior to shipping. I was told that was their "SOP" (standard operating procedure). That is why I called them. Told 'Jason' that I was concerned about being charged prior to shipment. After mentioning this site, the complaints, and how he should let his direct know of this site, he still acted the same way--robotically, 'is there anything else I can do for you?" In the future, steer away from ordering anything online. With high-turnaround, too many employees may be just taking jobs to steal information. I will order locally with cash. GO HAWKS!
I found $5.00 charges on more than one of my CC accounts, at the same time. --Does anyone have any idea of where the information was stolen? --If they were just generating CC numbers, that could not explain what happened to me. --For those outside of US, did you ever use your card to shop online at any US website?
$5.00 charge on my AMEX. Have not done business with this company. Nothing additional yet, but I have posted a fraud alert and had my card reissued.
Update: I called my bank to order a new debit card, and she told me I actually had 2 debit cards on my account which there should not be. In December they put a hold on my debit card cause they said I had used it at a site online where fraudulent activity was reported.. which I had no idea what site it would be as I shop online frequently and know what I'm doing/what to look for. Anyway I had them cancel that card and send me a new one which I have been using... come to find out the old one never got canceled and that was the one used on TEAMFANSHOP... plus they got my paypal debit card numbers and charged 5$ on there. They must be connected somehow, to a site I shopped on in December.
Same as you guys, bank blocked the fraudulent charge. $5 charge on my debit card. Surely it's someone to do with this company that's purporting this!? Very worrying and frustrating.
I received a text alert for $5 early in the morning and didn't pay it any mind I just thought it was a pending transaction I made. Later on in the afternoon I received another transaction for $9.21 from Dr. Jays.com and immediately called my bank and cancelled my card. Please be careful people be vigilant and check your accounts for fraudulent purchases. I've also asked the bank to investigate these transactions.
My Discovercard was used fraudulently to make a purchase from FRG*TEAMFANSHOP this A.M. Thursday March 13,2014. I was notified by Discovercard that three online purchases were made in the early A.M. today. The card was cancelled and I called Team Fan Shop, which is located in Georgia, and my charge was reversed. Thank You Team Fan Shop for your help.
FOLLOW-UP: After getting my card cancelled, I was notified a day later that someone was trying to purchase on Hotels.com and Priceline.com. People trying to get a vacation on my dime. Really good thing I cancelled before this!!!
After depositing my paycheck, I checked my acct online & saw a $5.00 charge & reversal charge from FRG*TEAMFANSHOP-877-833-7397-FL in the "pending" status of my acct. I never heard of this company. I called the # & it said it was not a working #. So I "googled" it & found all these posts. I immediately contacted my bank & cancelled my debit card. The next day, the charge & reversal didn't even show up as going through & was not in the "pending" stage either. I didn't find any other fraudulent charges so I think I caught it before any real damage happened. It's best check your acct often help stop these fraudulent companies/people.
I had this company put $5 on my debit card and then take it back off. Right after that a company called CENTMOBILE.COM Location: 760-201-4270, NJ Purchase Date: 3/24/14 Category: Utilities took $20 off my card. I have canceled my card and they are reissuing a card. We are filing fraud charges against them. I'm glad I didn't have more on it. How can I be safe with my next card that this company FRG*TEAMFANSHOP Location: 866-687-3305, FL Purchase Date: 3/24/14 Category: Retail Stores doesn't do this again. How do they know our balances and get our money.
FRGTEAMFANSHOP charged my card $5.00 DREDERMSTORE.COM chaarged my card $64.39 VCIVITACOST.COM charged my card $47.88 VITVITAMIN SHOPPE.C charged my card 75.40
All fraudulent charges!! Had to cancel all my cards to ensure they didnt have more then ones information. Have to go into the bank and sign fraudulent papers to hopefully get refunded. Sounds like something needs to be done against these company's, like a more secure checkout process to ensure our protection!
paypal is advertising $15.00 off a $75.00 purchase. strange this would be on paypal.
I am in Singapore and also have this unauthozied charge of 5USD. Luckily, my bank detected and stop it. I need to cancel my card an waiting for the new one. Anyone know anything about this?
My bank called me this morning to verify a purchase from FRG*TEAMFANSHOP in the amount of $56 from a couple days ago. I couldnt believe it, we have only had this card one week! These are some fast thieves.
Same fraud happened to me via the same company. $178 worth. Chase declined the purchase (thankfully.) Nice catch saved my bacon. Would love to visit these assholes to have a face-to-face discussion . . .
After reading all these posts, I immediately called my bank and closed my debit card requesting a new one. Thankfully no other charges had been applied to my account. Thank you to all have reported here...it has been very insightful and very useful.
I bank with Huntington and I have mobile alerts. $5 was taken out, called bank cancelled card . FRG*TEAMFANSHOP 877-833-7397
3-30-14 They are still at it. Same 5 dollar charge on my acct from FRGTeamfanshop. Cancelled card thanks to what I found here. I can't believe they are still at it after all of these reports. Also have a 1 dollar charge from EIGHomestead. Looks like the same deal- test before a larger charge. Watch where you shop online!
Also $5.00 charge on my AMEX. Have not done business with this company. Nothing additional yet, but I have posted a fraud alert and had my card reissued.
A $5 charge attempt was made with my card for FRG FAN SHOP but my bank, Suntrust, flagged it before it could go through and marked it immediately as Fraudulent. Good job Suntrust!
I purchased a pair of "Go USA" Olympic mittens from TeamUSAshop.com (the official on,one shop of the US Olympic team). The charge came through on my credit card as FRG*TEAMFANSHOP 877-833-7397 FL. The charge was legit for me. Hope this helps.
[Great website!] My AMEX card was up late last night testing its ability to shop onlne. FRG TEAMFANSHOP was the first charge. Five minutes later my card took a sudden liking to iTunes,.....twice. That was enough for AMEX to lock down my account and send me a couple e-mails asking if my number was indeed being misused or if I had a sudden new passion for wasting money.
Not the first time but it is good to know that thieves are still stupid enough to test the card three times and thereby wake up the sleeping giant who cuts them off before they can do any real damage.
Hint to all folks in the same boat: Keep a list of accounts that automatically bill monthly, quarterly or annual service renewals to your card so you can update them with your new card number. I wish I had made such a list in the past. I shall now. Better late than never.
I too found 2 charges from this site TeamFanShop for $5.00 and $1.00 (both reversed immediately), Plus a $10.00 Zappos.com charge (Not reversed) and a $.99 charge from Nu-Bill.com out of Newark DE (not reversed).
I called Wells Fargo and informed them. They immediately cancelled my card and will 'investigate'. They said I will not incur any further charges and these will be refunded. I'm wondering if my card was skimmed at a Red Lobster (as that was the last place I was prior to these charges appearing). Skimming is when a card number is taken and 'sold' online. Many skimmers charge small amounts to validate the card, then sell the number on the blackmarket. My charges were in DE,FL, and NV.
This is too much who ever is doing this fraud shit have to pay for and I already did the police report on this fucking person how is that possible that my bank wellsfargo think that I did this transaction even tough that I never buy anything online just be carefull you never know.............
I live in Australia and I was charged a $5.60 amount on my credit card from teamfanshop recently. Thank goodness the bank saw this and put a hold on my credit card. I am waiting to see if an other charges were made. My card was cancelled because of this.
Is there something that we all have in common? Maybe shopping at the same place and the hackers are hacking into this companies recent purchase log and stealing our information. I've bought a lot of clothes recently. We need to figure this out!
On m'a voler directement ds mon compte de 5.49 4 , qui a fait l'achat svp .. ??? Somebody stole my name , my ID, and pay on line .. somebody buy something with my name , mot funny , i want the name
They are still at it Jan 25. Sounds like a Chase issue, they have been very good about notifying us. Thanks Chase.
I've just browsed over for merchant information who charged my local cc and found this webpage. "FRG*TEAMFANSHOP" charged me for USD 5.00 for six time transactions on 16 february 2014. i then called the bank customer rep immediately, saying that those trx had not been settled by the merchant. knowing that somebody had just stolen my cc data, i closed that cc account for safety; also rejected bank's offer to issue a new one since i still don't have clues of whose party is doing it. the bank said i can claim for refund once the those billings are issued.
