Credit Card Details Hacked at TripAdvisor

Tripadvisor Credit Cards Hacked

On March 24th, TripAdvisor finally admitted that hackers had easily hacked into numerous of their Databases. What TripAdvisor did not tell us is that the servers were “seeded” and the hackers had free access to members account info including Credit Card details, user names and Email accounts, for weeks and maybe even months before they caught on to the situation.
Even after TripAdvisor knew private details were compromised, they waited another 4 days to alert their members.
Even when they did come clear, and admitted they had been hacked, they still lied about what exactly happened. TripAdvisor wants everyone to believe that the hackers only got away with an “unknown” number of Email Accounts, and that no “Credit Card Details” and / or  “Passwords” were compromised.
Days after it became clear that TripAdvisor is not capable of securing their +20 million registered users (of which 82% are in-active) personal information, millions of  TA users got flooded with Spam disguised as messages from the likes of UPS, Wells Fargo, DELL and Amazon, luring the members to give personal info.
Now, more than 2 months after the hack, 100’s of people are flocking to TA because their Credit Cards have been used unlawfully.
TripAdvisor refuses to comment on these accusations, saying the matter is under investigation.

More info about this coming soon….

We are a small group of 9 people that are tired of the way TripAdvisor chooses to conduct their business, mainly because of the total lack of consideration towards “owners” in the hospitality world. We are based in the USA, Europe and New Zealand.

    So which part of trip advisor do you enter your credit card details?

    • property owner says:

      They ask credit card details to register a property and to register an authorized person to manage his property details/reviews in Trip Advisor. They say it is for security. It is not for payment though for all unless you are listed on paying business listing.

    • property owner says:

      I was also a property owner in Trip Advisor. They removed my property from their listing without any prior notification. We don’t know of any violation of their rules. Neither they gave us any warning before removing us nor they respond our e-mails or calls. We were in quite good position among similar businesses of our area and may be our competitors wrote them against us or what happened we are still unaware of the reason. Anyway, we found out TRIPADVISOR is not fair. Once we had a bad review that was posted probably by our competitor but Trip Advisor did not remove it although we told that the reviewer did not buy our service. We were starting to believe Trip Advisor is not fair, and we are now assured of it.

  2. I know that Property Owners that promote their property on tripadvisor and flipkey pay using their credit card, but not sure if tripadvisor stores them. There are plenty of people on the owners forum complaining their credit card has been misused, and they have been double billed, so they must have the details somewhere.
