As I related previously, I had my credit card hacked when I phoned in a order from Bestbuy. As per Bestbuy corporate team, the Customer service that took my order charged gift cards from Applebees on my cc, while she had me hold on. I was alerted via text that a charge was made. When the customer service came back to the ohone, I told her someone just charged my card at Applebees fir a huge dinner because the charge was for over $400. Seems me getting alerted caught her off guard. She cancelled her gift card order from Applebees. . But she was so busy hacking my cc that she messed up my order . The regular customer service couldnt correct the order, so I was transferred to corporate. Thats when the truth unfolded. They traced my cc that was used to make her gift card order to her own phone.
I learned a lesson not to order via phone if I have to reveal my CC info to them.

Such an attack can be prevented. This is especially useful for children. Because often children can’t even detect this attack. Therefore, I recommend using parental control.
