BT Click and Buy – fuck yeah!!!

This is to warn that the allegedly secure payment site BT Click and Buy is being used by fraudsters. I am now in the process of cancelling a Visa Gold card that has been used to make purchases for an amount close to LVL 200, most of it for amounts of 40 GBP each. I have used this card, in person, to make exactly one purchase in Britain in March or April, either coming or going to the US. Other than that, I have made few purchases with this card, aside from tanking up my Skype account for EUR 10 or so. And Visa Gold is supposed to be a "safe" card??? It will be interesting to know how this happened, maybe one of those card data base leaks?

How do you gonna cancel that? Does it would be right just to cancel direct debit cause I know that some companies are chasing you if you don't let them know first?
PS. I have selected to pay for songs downloaded from iTunes over BT Click and Buy.
