    Bought OnePlus One back in July 2014 or so but done it with Paypal because they much easier to work through and easier with refunds etc so no problems. Yet to purchase a new device and if I would it would be paypal again, get paypal protection banks are just effort.

    If I needed to buy another phone today, I would buy another OP5t, and I would use a CC on their site. Many more benefits to CC than PayPal, well with good CC anyways.

    You can still put credit card behind on Paypal. I usually use PayPal when there is a chance ;)

    Attempted means that Amex declined. Did they give any information why it was declined? Would be interesting to know...

    Sometimes they just use cards that were generated randomly. Issuer BINs (first six digits) are easy to find out, everything behind is randomly picked with a certain system, so there is a chance that this might happen to any card.

    Would be interesting to know if card was declined because 8f e. G. Wrong Expiry Date or wrong card holder name... There must be a reason for decline...

    Why would I want to do that? I would be missing out on all these features...
    - $0 Fraud protection
    - 2 year extension to manufacturer's warranty
    - 90 day accidental damage insurance
    - 90 day return guarantee
    - cash back anywhere between 1% - 11% depending on CC, merchant, category, bonus offers

    No but to not type in your cards everywhere.

    You authorize PayPal to give money to sites without giving out card details, so your details are only on a reputable site PayPal.

    Oh and be careful, if you have virus in your computer, you wont get noticable fraud activities, usually takes months to make sure all of the necessary details are logged before taking in action.

    I only use PayPal if there is no other option for checkout, and sometimes I will buy from a different site. If you have malware or virus on your computer, it wont matter where you enter CC information into, PayPal or directly into checkout.

    If I have reason to be concerned I can get a virtual account number.

    Just had 300 in bogus charges. Credit Union caught it, so no skin off my back. If this company does not tell us what the **** is going on i will not buy a phone from them ever again unless they set up a shop i can buy with cash..

    Don't think you got off Scott-free if you used paypal instead. According to a poster at /r/oneplus on Reddit they apparently also got names and addresses too, which allowed whoever fraudulently charged their card to also phone their phone carrier, pass the telephone security name and address checks and report their phone as 'lost', so the credit card company couldn't inform them. It's looking more and more like an internal breach and everyone should be worried.

    I was hit with this also. I didn't wait for the sandstone release as this phone would have a case and possibly a skin.

    Jan 6 Sat - Ordered 5t 128gb Black
    Jan 10 Wed - delivered
    Jan 11 Thur 3:19am - Chase notified me of fraudulent charges via SMS, at Kohls, JCPenny, reply and freeze card
    Jan 11 Thur 6:07am - Call Chase confirm fraud, cancel card, find out 2 other charges were tried at Bestbuy also.

    I have no saved cards in my account. I would not save a card to a site I would so infrequently order from.

    My debit card had an attempted fraudulent transaction for €1300 attempted on 10th Jan. Contacted my bank and got card cancelled immediately.

    It might have just been a coincidence, but it's sounding like a few people here have been hit at the same time.

    Sounds a bit fishy to me.

    It just happened to me too. I ordered the white OnePlus 5T on Jan 9th, payment went through on Jan 10th and on Jan 11th someone used my CC at Best Buy then Sears.com. Luckily my bank declined them. OnePlus is the only place I used that card. I contacted OnePlus and spoke with a supervisor, who really didn't do anything much except say they'll look into it. The OnePlus site is clearly not as secure as they think it is. I won't be making anymore purchases from them since it's so easily hacked. Too bad, because I do really like the 5T.
