    Ticket Master Data Breach.

    Anyone else been advised of this after buying tix? I got notified 4 days ago and had a text from Amex questioning a transaction last night. Was a fraud attempt and card was cancelled.

    Getting a little paranoid. This is the third "hack advisory" in the past month for me. No credit card involved in the other 2.

    Yep. Asked to text 1 of I made the transaction 2 if not. Second text asking to contact Amex immediately. Logged into Amex to verify the phone number legit and, after the usual ID checks they cancelled the card. I said earlier that other incidents were not CC related but I since remembered my Which Bank CC was used to book a hotel in the Grampians a few months ago and had to be cancelled. But I picked it up myself as I monitor CC's regularly. Like I said, getting a little paranoid.

    Ticket Master has offered 12 months free ID monitoring. It concerns anyone who booked on line from last November till about mid June IIRC. Not limited to AMEX - but I'm glad they are on the ball.

    Didn't affect me at all. Until some scrote tried to use the credit card number.

    Ticketmaster would not be offering a year's free ID monitoring if it wasn't a serious issue.

    I'd advise anyone who gets that e mail to log in to Ticketmaster and check if they have stored your credit card number and delete it. They had mine and I'm 99% sure they didn't ask first. I ALWAYS decline. You might also consider contacting the card issuer for advice.

    Yeah I reset my password and it deleted my stored credit card entry.
