My wife was hit with this and it was a Cash App on the stepdaughter phone that was associated in the Scam.

Seems Square a credit card/debt card reader company is involved somehow because all transaction ends up with Square main office phone number. Could be a spoof thing at play here. I don’t think Square would do something that would cause them any bad publicity.

I've had one of my credit cards compromised 3 times in the last 2 years. First time I caught it, the next two Visa caught it. The tell tale sign was several charges to Amazon for $2-3 to see if the card works, after that they will attempt to do a much larger charge. Fortunately it was caught each time with the low charges. Other than the inconvenience of not having access to the card while waiting for a replacement, I didn't lose anything. I NEVER use a debit card as a credit card. Your bank account can be emptied before you find the fraud, and it is very difficult to get it back. If you suffer from CC fraud you are only liable for $50, and I've never heard of anyone being charged that.
I also lost/misplaced a CC last year, but it never got used by anyone. I cancelled the card as soon as I discovered it missing and got a replacement.

I just had to block my credit card and have a new one issued because of a fraudulent charge. I had a $332 charge for the "Main Street Armory" in Rochester, NY. Apparently that is a venue for pop concerts and other type events and the phone number associated with the charge took me to "E-Tickets" which I assume is a ticket service like Ticketmaster or Stubhub. I called by bank and contested the charge and did not pay that portion of the bill. I am guessing not being paid by the bank is a risk that venues that accept credit (which all do) cards take.

Wife was hit for 1400 that’s fourteen hundred but the credit card company did not inform her of the over charge. They said that it wasn’t uncommon for some one to transfer that amount of cash within a 48 hour time frame. She countered with exclamation “Even when you see an over draft”!
