We received a note from Susie Lee who reports that some of the credit cards on record at Travel Planners may have been compromised — she and no less than THREE of her friends have found fraudulent charges on their cards that were used to book hotel rooms with Travel Planners, including airline ticket purchases.
At the very least, checking your credit card statement right now isn’t a bad idea.
UPDATE: We originally posted this so as to alert as many people as possible, but please be advised that Travel Planners has investigated and found there was no breach. Their statement reads:
Obviously we were very alarmed at the implication that security at Travel Planners had been compromised. As you can imagine, we take credit card security and the confidence people place in our services very seriously. After a review of security we’ve determined that there has been no breech on any of the systems maintained by Travel Planners. This includes not only systems which deal with Comic-Con but on all systems throughout.
Guests of Comic-Con who may have questions regarding this matter please contact [email protected] and write Comic-Con in the subject line.
We would urge anyone who thinks they have been victims of fraud to contact Travel Planners directly.
