    I just got phished by a bot on Jack'd. Gave away my credit card information to a sketchy site like candy on Halloween. I'm definitely an idiot.

    What do I do know? :

    Immediately. Don't tell them that you gave out your credit card information; credit card numbers "escape" all the time. Otherwise you might be liable for the charges.

    Immediately

    Because scammers knows that accounts once discovered to be compromised will be closed down quickly so they have at most a few hours to use them

    Just curious.. What prompted you to enter your credit card? Might be good to share the patterns/questions the bot asked you, so that no one else falls for it.

    I'm guessing it was a scam where a bot was using a picture of a really good looking guy, used some text that was flirtatious and indicated genuine interest, then linked to a third pay party site that was the "only" way to chat face to face and get to know each other better.
