  • Disney Movie Club Notifies Members of Potential Credit Card Fraud

    Last week, The Disney Movie Club (www.disneymovieclub.com) sent notices to an undisclosed number of members informing them of a credit security incident involving an employee of Alta Resources, Inc, which processes orders on behalf of DMC. The employee allegedly sold credit card information from DMC members to federal agents in an undercover sting operation in May.

    According to the letter, "there is no indication that your information was used to make improper purchases or sold to anyone other than federal law enforcement agents." DMC nevertheless has notified the major credit card companies of the incident.

    The person involved in the incident is no longer employed with Alta Resources. There was no word on whether criminal charges have been filed.

    Disney Movie Club members are encouraged to contact DMC at (888) 524-6222 if they have any concerns about their accounts.

              Add me to the list

              Thing is, I have had the unfortunate luck of having a past employer have a laptop stolen with my information on it. They; however, provided 1 year of credit monitoring because of it. I was very surprised and disappointed to see that DMC did not do that.

                      I got one of these letters also. I was kind of confused because at first I assumed they sent one to everyone, but now it sounds like they just sent them if your card number was stolen. That is pretty scary!

                        I don't believe all DMC orders are processed through Alta Resources, so only people who had their information compromised were notified. Still, if you don't receive a letter, it's probably a good idea to contact DMC anyway.

                          I got this letter on Tuesday.

                            The man behind the evil crime has been caught.

                            Man Arrested in Disney Credit Sting

                            ORLANDO SENTINEL -- (July 16, 2007) A Wisconsin man was arrested in connection with illegally trying to sell the credit card information of some Disney video customers, authorities said.

                            In letters dated July 6, Walt Disney Co. told some members of its mail-order movie club that their credit card information was found with a suspect arrested in a federal undercover sting.

                            A copy of the letter was obtained by the Orlando Sentinel. It is not immediately known how many customers were involved.

                            David Haltinner, 25, of Wisconsin was arrested in the case in May and faces a federal felony charge of access-device fraud, the Sentinel reported.

                            Disney told its customers that the suspect in the case worked at Alta Resources Inc., which processes credit card orders for the movie club.

                            It does not appear the credit card information was used for purchases or offered to anyone other than investigators, according to Disney's letter. However, the letter still urged movie club members to review their financial records.

                            Disney Movie Club customers can order films from Disney's Buena Vista Home Entertainment unit, whose titles include 'Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen,' 'Lizzie McGuire,' and 'High School Musical.'

                            Messages left by The Associated Press with Buena Vista Home Entertainment and Alta Resources Inc. were not immediately returned Sunday.

                              My own personal update to this story. My credit card number, which I haven't used in months and was on file with the DMC was stolen and used in Los Angeles this week. There is no other place the number could have been taken from, so it appears he was successful in selling at least a few numbers.

                              I would urge you, if you haven't already, to place a fraud report in your credit report, just to protect yourself if this has affected you.
