Thanks for posting this @KCBurg, i hadn't heard about it.   I just checked my card accounts and thankfully no unusual charges.

The original Reddit thread does not really contain many credible reports and the person who started it claims they kept one CC for just using at 5D and no other sportsbooks or other places.

That is just bullshit. Heard it a few times before and when asked if they can show a statement that shows that is true no one ever has.

Anyway, it was checked out with 5D and apparently there hasn't been any rash of reports or anything else to suggest there is a problem from there.

Plus, it's not really a smart idea to be saying to your bank that you suspect people you are dealing with are frauds. You will likely find your new card has stricter purchase limitations on it as the bank rates your judgement as lower now... plus if your card is hit with fraudulent charges your bank will fix them fast most of the time anyway.

Anyway, personally I would not be changing cards due to someone on Reddit who claims they are sure as they have a card just for that one place. Just not a credible claim and I'm pretty sure only idiots who think they cant be proven wrong are the only ones to say it to back up their suspicions as being fact.

Bettingtalk Forum also had a guy that two weeks after he deposited he had two charges that were fraudulent of course it could be a huge coincidence.

I rarely use the card so for me no real inconvenience to report it lost and have a new one shipped. 


I had someone steal my Paypal identity 10 yrs ago, yes the charges were reversed but still quite the hassle.

Had a couple charges yesterday like other people were saying iirc. 2 travel agency charges and a small one at apple. She lady said they do a small one to see if it works first. Haven't used my card in years at 5d, but I assume they keep the info.
