Jeff Valent Hacked

Jeff valent Studios (mentioned in my last post) was hacked. If you got a gift certificate, don't use it. I used mine for just a small amount over the $20.00. I figured they were trying to get customers back after some service issues. I'd had bad service some time ago.

Did the hacker hope people would provide CC details? JVS uses PayPal, so how does the theft work? Or did the thief divert any money generated? Or was it just malicious and giving out discounts to destroy the relationships?

Sorry, I'm a bit dense on how this one worked?

The short version, I used mine for a dollar or so over the certificate. I also challenged the transaction as soon as I found out.
