Blowout Hacked

In case there are collectors here who have bought cards through Blowout this year, check the forum now. They were breached and personal info including credit/debit card numbers and verification codes for purchases in the last 4 months may be at risk. Paypal was not reported as effected.

They just posted the notice today and it is strong enough to seem as though they think fraud may follow, so read it and see if you want to take the recommended steps with you bank.

On a side note, whenever possible NEVER store your card information with a retailer. It is easier to give it to them then type all the info in with every purchase, but if you type in the card data every time and don't give permission to store it all, the retailer will only have your name and address on file should it get breached, but not your payment info.

Hope this impacts very few.
