use caution when using Point 2 Point shipping

Be careful with Point2Point. I used them for many years and have always been happy with them. I was there 5 weeks ago and used my credit card to pay for my charges as I always do. The only other place I used my card that day was to was to fill up with gas while done there. My credit card number was stolen and random purchases (some high dollar) were made the same day in New York. Visa covered it and sent me a new card. I figured it was the gas station at the time. Two days ago I went down to Point Roberts to pick up packaged and used my credit card once again at Point2Point but nowhere else this time. Visa just called me and told me the exact same thing happened again. It was the same staff member helping me each of those days.

I can 100% guarantee that the boss did not do it.

Why would he risk his successful business for skimming cards?

I suspect it was the Butler, with the lead pipe in the kitchen.

Seems like several people have been victims of this problem, specifically in Point Roberts.

Best you call the police and report it.

Thing is, the cc machine is fully visible there, don't they need to double swipe the card to steal info? (Maybe things have changed from the old way of doing things...)

I agree, inform the police that you suspect them as it has happened twice, could be coincidence, but if police get numerous calls, then they can deal with it

Just check your statements (better yet, use mint.com app, and real time check your cc purchases)

Well we had some customers that we believed were doing credit card fraud. Called the cops. they didn't care. Only after other stores were hit multiple times they too some interest but not much. 2 months later they were busted with a meth lab.

I have a capital one mastercard that sends you an email / text RIGHT AWAY (real-time) when a transaction over "xxx" amount is charged on the card. You can adjust the amount threshold but the minimum is $20. There's another option to set an alert if any transaction is made out of Canada.

Pretty sweet feature and peace of mind.

Not always.. the machine could have been hacked or the pin pad had been messed with. Basically in WA, they can still get use the information because they still haven't fully moved to chip card yet.

For all small business places.. it is much better to use cash.

Hm, I've heard a LOT of stolen CC number stories from PR.
This is why I've never used mine down there. I'd rather pay with cash, even Canadian cash if I'm out of American. Their exchange rate isn't bad anyway.

the US does not have the chip and pin system, it's only canada and europe.

also 100% it's the employee.

anyway you don't have to worry about it too much. banks are not stupid about these things, they have sophisticated algorithms that can detect when multiple cases of frauds all have a connecting location it was used at (ie. point roberts), they start investigating and people get busted.

Both times my credit card was compromised at P2P it was the "bigger" Girl that helped me (and helped herself) at the desk.
