My email to Orbitz below.. Seems to be a massive leak in their online security!!
DON'T BOOK ORBITZ!!
Just wanted to send a quick message that I believe your website may have some security issues.
Over the past 8 years I have been booking flights around the world, ordering numerous items online and have NEVER run into any credit card fraud. However, I've now become another victim.
I had not used Orbitz but had usually preferred to use Kayak.com due to better pricing. I however had become skeptical on a few of the 3rd party sites that Kayak.com was directing to, and read up on numerous great reviews on Ortbiz.com so I thought I couldn't go wrong.. But hindsight is funny like that isnt it?
After completing my first booking with orbitz within less than 12 hours my VISA card unbeknowns to me was being used to fraudlenty purchase flights and rail tickets. You'll likely tell me this is a mere coincidence, but I don't think so. As I mentioned I use my VISA a lot and have NEVER run into this before and the fact that the fraudulent activity was immediately after my booking, and was for travel arrangements? To much of a coincidence for me to ignore.
I'm very unimpressed, and can tell you now that the trouble I've had to go through getting police reports etc to recoup my money I'll never be using Orbitz again.
Thanks for your time.
