    I recently made a similar post in a Danish forum but didn't get many replies. I was wondering if any of you people have experienced something like the following during your online gaming "careers" - or if any of you have a clue as to what has happened:

    A couple of weeks ago I recieved an email from an online casino/sporsbookie. It said that I had not won my bet (on some English football matches) - I was puzzled, because at that particular site I hadn't been doing any sportsbetting, only playing casino games. I wrote them and asked why they were sending me that email. They replied that I had made three sports bets during the last week... Even more puzzled I logged into my account and discovered that not only had I apparently made 3 sports bets...also a sum of ca. $4000 of deposits had been made from my Mastercard within 6 hours (at a time where I was sleeping) and the money was nowhere to be "found" on my account. The strange thing is: I have never used my Mastercard when playing at online casinos - I only deposit via my VISA-card. I wrote the casino and asked what had happened - they replied that there were no indications of any technical malfunctions or the like in their system. After that I asked them to close my account and I closed my Mastercard...

    The casino is among the most well-respected in Denmark - and I couldn't see why - or HOW - they should do something like this.

    I have won and lost tens of thousands of dollars over the years - and in that context, $4000 is not a lot. And I'll probably get my money back through my bank after a great deal of paperwork - It just irritates me, that I can't see what has happened.

    Can hackers in any way do something like this to me?
    Could there be flaws in the casino's software?
    Has this happened to anyone else?
    Should I fear that my VISA card too could be hammered and that I'm just not aware of it yet?
    etc. etc.

    Experiences, suggestions, and any jibberish :) will be appreciated.

    WOW Clusen, To be on the safe side I would have every card reissued with new numbers. If someone found a way to "hammer" one card, you can rest assured they probably have info. on your other cards as well. I think your Bank would be more comfortable with that arrangement as well. It's great to have you posting. Have a good one.

    Clusen - I didn't even know you can deposit that much with a Danish creditcard. Not like VISA I guess.

    Ask the casino to check what IP-address "you" logged in from when the deposits were made - and compare them to other IP's in their database.

    I didn't know I could deposit that much either! That was just one of several surprises ;-)

    Thanks for the IP-tip :)
