Groupon frauds blamed on third-party password breaches

Here we go again...

"What we are seeing however is a very small number of customers who have had their account taken over by fraudsters. Nothing out of the ordinary for an e-commerce site. "

So Groupon don't give a damn and think account hijacking is "normal", ie they don't plan to do anything about it, although it is easy to protect user accounts and particularly to stop third parties getting their hands on user financial data. I suppose given recent publicity about how Groupon's "offers" are less than stellar or that they don't check what is offered for sale through their site its not a complete surprise to find out they have the attitude of "We've got your data and we don't give a damn."
