My virtual shopify card info was stolen and the thief made a little under $5000 total in purchases. I tried reaching out to shopify support and they told me they can only reach out to the bank as an intermediate and ask them to open a dispute on the charges. I filed a police report and sent shopify a copy to submit that as evidence. Now in hopes to get the thief caught, I'm trying to get more info on the charges, the location to be exact so that my police department knows what county to forward my case to. The vendors related to the charges said they unfortunately aren't able to see the store locations on their end, and that my bank would know. I asked shopify support and they told me Celtic Bank is the bank in charge of my card. I reached out to Celtic and they told me they do not handle any customer issues whatsoever, and that the person to contact is Stripes as they are the ones issuing the card I guess? They transferred me to Stripes and Stripes told me the only way they can look into my account is after Shopify reaches out to them and gives them permission I think to look into it. They gave me a number to call, saying it's the manager in charge of Shopify related cards, along with an email. The number is unfortunately no longer in service and the voicemail says to reach out to shopify support. The email though belongs to a person named Robert Cavanagh. I again reached out to shopify and they told me they have no way at all to look into my account and transactions? The Shopify rep Soledad also told me they have no way at all to reach out directly to my bank/Celtic. So how did they submit the charges for dispute? Everyone is basically giving me the runaround and I have no idea how to move forward from here. Shopify's lack of alerts and fraud prevention allowed that $5000 to disappear overnight, do I have to live with being ok that it's gone now? If anyone knows anything to help, please let me know.
We are dealing with this exact issue rite now, it is a joke how can they expect us to sit here and let them hold our money and them to treat us like this? The lack of support and help from shopify on this issue has me ready to move websites and gateways this should seriously be a 2 step process and done but it is a complete joke with shopify celtic bank and stripe.
