Another possibility is that it's javascript which I always try to block in Safari. I would assume that an 'html' email would still be using Webkit for display, but not sure Safari prefs would be effective. :dntknw: The few that I've got have been from one particular Windows users and are hardly ever worth wasting electrons on! :blush:

No luck on finding my account. Strange that it hit the dark web, but doesn't exist -- but I'm not going to worry about it. I searched both my gmail account, and my "receipts" folder on my iMac and the last time I used this account was 2013! I paid through paypal, so they wouldn't have any credit card info on me. In reading what was purchased, I realized that the items ordered were at Sneakers request. Yeah, I'm a big cafepress shopper. :lol: 

It IS annoying that this keeps happening.  <_<
This is the biggest issue, and it's not just CafePress. I'm not sure there is any merchant/bank/credit card site that is safe. I'm not sure ANY site is safe from hackers. So if you use the Internet, you're vulnerable and you do the best you can and hope for the best. Actually, if you have a bank account or a credit card, you're vulnerable -- even if you never trip the 'net fantastic. ;)

And on that happy note--HAHA--I'm outta here. :scram:

No, I've seen that button before, Jim, but it's been absent when this happens.

I got the email also. I didn’t click the link provided, bu went to the site through StasrtPage, tried “forgot password” with both emails, and got a Leo such account exits”, so I guess I'm safe. I do keep a close watch on my credit card account, checking in a couple of times a week, ever since the 3 major “credit companies” got hacked 3 or 4 years ago, so I'm not too worried about this.

Even more phishing, pretty clever nowadays.
 
We got an email from BOA to 'update our information', and it asked for darn near everything.
Of course it was a fake.
But a week later from the same bank, we got a letter in the snail-mail with a form to do the same. And it looked just perfect.
I knew it had to be bad, so took it to the main office of the bank in the larger town near us.

And they were astonished at how real it looked! I gave the whole thing to them, and they were going to have a conference about it.
As they knew other people would have gotten similar and it was 'going to hit the fan'.

Well, apart from not being able to spell Moises' name, the scammer wasn't entirely lying. He died in 2010 in a helicopter crash - and he was wealthy. The rest, of course, is pure invention. ;)

"I know...I'll use a REAL person, just in case the mark happens to know how to Google! Yeah! That oughta do it!" LOL.

I got an email from Cafe Press the other day - the relevant bit:

Quote
The information may have included your name, email address, the password to your CafePress account, and other information (physical address, phone number, and in a small number of cases, only the last four digits of your credit number and credit card expiration date).

Like you, Kimmer, when I attempted to log in at Cafe Press, I got the "account doesn't exist" - but when I tried again now, using the "forgot password" option, sure enough, there was an account. I have now changed the PW (which oddly, was one I hadn't stored in 1Password anyway and I would have had to do the "forgot PW" thing if I'd wanted to order from them again. I don't reuse passwords, so that's not much of a concern. My CC expiration and PIN code have changed since I last ordered, and if all they have is the last 4 digits of my CC they won't get far anyway. My name, address and landline are in the phone book, so it's not as if those are of much use. The Gmail address used gets some spam - and Gmail does a great job of filtering it out, so...methinks I've done as much as I can at this point.

It IS annoying that this keeps happening.  <_<

Evite is another one that I use that got hacked recently - though the email address that shows up in HIBP is NOT either of the ones I used for accounts there (I have two - one is for an organization, the other personal), but an email address that was in HIBP was in one of the contact/invitee lists. So all they got with that one was the name and the email address. Again...no biggie, but all the Evite PWs have been changed anyway.

Any place that uses your credit card should already need a password, in my opinion. Of course, if they are not encrypting that data and the server, it won’t be protected.

They likely (hopefully) use multiple servers and many of them may be “off-line” while they sort things out.

Good luck with bureaucrats! :wallbash:
