Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Yesterday Square sent me an email that someone logged into my acct.
The email only said that I should change my password, which I did- to everything that I have that has that password.
I wanted to warn others in case this could happen to you.
NOW I'm thinking that the hackers had access to lots of customer's credit card info so I plan to contact square about this.
Anyone else ever heard of this?
And, please be watchful everyone. Never thought about all of the info that is on that site!
Thank you both for replying. I must be lucky because I know what phishing is and have never had it. Except in the 90’s with the easy to see Nigerian ones.
Chris, I see what you mean...but I’m not saying that I use the same password for everything! And, yes, since this is public I won’t give details.
Square is the one and only site that emails me every time I log on, with the exact type email that I received this time. Of course it’s always me so I disregard the emails.
I didn’t use the link.
If I wasn’t hacked— that’s a relief.
Hi! Good thing you knew not to click on the link that came in the email.
I know it can happen, but square is one of the most secure sites, which is one reason I stay with them, and I have never heard of a hack into their site or from their site.
Good luck moving forward.
I realize now that I was not hacked, although I did check with square, and yes, I like working with them even if it takes some time to get replies.
Just to clear up- I've been fortunate, BUT a month before this happened I had a guy who did some work for me use my credit card number to pay off some of his bills!! Very blatant and easy to catch up with! He and I had discussed using square, so my first thought was that he could be connected to this.
It's great to have help here sorting things out!
