    AnyFin.com warning.

    Two or three weeks ago, I noticed a $3.99 charge to my debit card from AnyFin.com. I'd not heard of this site, let alone placed any kind of order with them. I went to the site and found that it allows you to subscribe to several news letters (or something like that) for a fee. I notified my bank and did a little research. See below:

    The listed address is bogus. When entered into Google Maps, it takes you to a nice grass and tree lined empty road. I was surprised however, to receive a reply to my email. See below: (please read from bottom up)

    Hello,
    Thanks for the reply. However, your explanation only serves to deepen my concern. Since I did not request this transaction, and the transaction requires and email address, what is that address? I certainly never received a confirmation. Did they provide the security code from the back of the card? I am trying to determine who is using my name and credit card. I am certain that were you in my situation, you would want to get to the bottom of this also.

    Thank you for your help in this matter,

    Respectfully,
    Mel

    Hello,
    I have received my refund, but remain concerned. How were you able to
    charge my card when I never even visited your site? Please explain.
    Respectfully,
    Mel

    It has been over a week now with no reply. Since then, my wife (completely different computer) has had her Amazon Kendle account hacked and over $140.00 in digital downloads sent to someone in D.C.. Her bank has closed that account and is sending a new card (same with mine).
    Besides changing the password on her Amazon account, is there anything else we might need to do?

    Sorry for the long post.

    Mel

    I think you better contact the credit card site and delete that account. They should issue new cards under a new account number. I would also look at changing passwords on any sites that contain personal information.

    You might also check your PCs for any malware that might be hiding therein. Run complete AV/AM scans with an app of your choice. the latest Newsletter has some recommendations for scans. I would also run a complete scan with MalwareBytes Anti-Malware.

    Medico, thanks for the suggestions. I've done everything you suggested but read the latest newsletter. I'll do that now.
