Help with my British Airways issue
The issue in GetHuman1186777's own words
Following BA allowing the theft of all of my credit card information, including the CCV number, I want BA to cancel my booking and refund the credit card payment in full. ... Dear Alex Cruz**I am surprised that you have not given me the courtesy of replying to my email of ** September **** below, or dealt with my instructions to cancel the booking reference SOLR*E.**This matter is now very urgent. **Please cancel the booking reference SOLR*E and refund the GBP ***.** paid, in full, before Wednesday, ** September ****.**Sincerely***C P Eccleston*** *************************************From: Chris & Neera Eccleston ******@***.com**Date: Sun, ** Sep **** at **:***Subject: Re: Theft of Customer Data*To: British Airways *BritishAirways*GB.JAMRZX.*****@***.com*****Dear Alex Cruz**I refer to your email below, and your subsequent emails to date on this subject.**I am deeply concerned and outraged that you have allowed the theft of my personal and credit card card details. It is incredulous to me that the theft appears to have included the CVV number from my credit card which should not have even been retained on your ( ba.com ) systems, and renders my credit card totally exposed to fraud. **Were your records of customer and credit card information not fully encrypted before you allowed them to be stolen?**It is even more outrageous that this has happened while I am travelling, and cannot get an immediate replacement credit card for my use if I cancel the original card, the full details of which you have given away to thieves. I may as well have sold my credit card information and personal data on the dark web, or eBay, myself.**I do not see why British Airways should be benefit or profit from my custom, if they are to give away my personal and credit card details so liberally. **Therefore, as a first stage to compensate me for your failure and the huge inconvenience you have caused me, will you immediately cancel my booking reference SOLR*E ( SOLR*E ) which was made during the period when the data theft occurred and you gave my credit card and personal details away, and refund in full the GBP ***.** paid.**Will you please confirm by email you have dealt with the above instructions within the next * working days.**Sincerely***CP Eccleston
They simply will NOT respond, or deal with this.**How can they not encrypt customer financial and credit card details, and then allow that information to be stolen ? This breaches their fundamental duty of care and, no doubt, numerous data protection laws.
By dealing with my instruction to cancel the booking, and refund the money in full.
I have used BA for travel from as long ago as **** ...... possibly earlier.
