UK anime fans reporting credit and debit card fraud - be vigilant!


UK anime fans reporting credit and debit card fraud - be vigilant!

Posted 17/09/2012


The last few days have seen a worrying, and continuing, trend amongst (and largely exclusive to) anime fans in the UK - in short, we're seeing more and more reports of attempted credit and debit card fraud across the community.

This tends to suggest that a retailer used by large numbers of anime fans has had their database breached and credit card details stolen as a result, so we'd like to take this opportunity to advise all anime fans who have made purchases online with currently active credit and debit cards to keep an extremely close track of their statements, and to report any unusual activity immediately.

Specifically, we're currently receiving unconfirmed reports that online retailer Anime On-Line (the online storefront of MVM Entertainment) may have had their site's security breached - again, if you've made purchases from this retailer, be extremely vigilent regarding any unusual activity using your card, and if you've used an active card with this site you may want to consider cancelling it as a pre-emptive measure.

We'll be sure to keep you informed if or when we hear more about the issue, and if you've been affected by credit card fraud over the last few days please let us know in the comments section.

EDIT 16:35PM (17/09/2012): At the time of writing, the Anime On-Line website is now reporting that it is "closed for maintenance", and MVM Entertainment (who run the site) have confirmed that they have been informed of potential issues with the site being compromised by their ISP.  The site was set to be relaunched as early as next week, complete with a new off-site payment provider (WorldPay), but closure of the existing site has been brought forward as a precaution - it may re-open with PayPal as its sole payment option until the new site is completed and opened.
