Very Urgent Regarding Fraudulent Activity on my account

Casual Listener

I have had a spotify premium subscription for ages now and this gives me the ability to listen to any music when I want to by streaming the songs on my Ipod Touch. In the early hours of this morning there was a download of 1 song at  a price of 1.15, this followed shortly by a download of 100 songs for 50 pounds then again another 50 pounds for another 50 songs.

 

I immediately sent a contact form to spotify this morning reporting this issue and changed my password, I also contacted my card provider advising them of the fraudulent activity. I also just noticed that my billing cycle had been changed from monthly to yearly. Someone has obvioulsy hacked into this account and is still using it even though I have changed the password . How can this be? I want an urgent anser on this and I also want to report this to the police. Can Spotify advise me of the procedure for this?  Please see my receipt detals from my account below

Customer Support should be in touch shortly.

 

You might also want to check any other online accounts you have (email, gaming, etc.) and make sure you change those logins and passwords.

Dio you know how long that it will take to get a response as it is very worrying seeing 251 pounds racked up on your account overnight. Is there know way of opting out of downloads so that this could never happen as I am only interested in streaming music and not downloading it.

Shortly isn't good enough in my opinion. How could this happen? There should be a security question system that must be answered when people charge large amounts.

I agree, someone could easily run up 1000's of pounds , had I been abroad on holiday I wouldn't have seen the email receipts. Not good at all.

Well, these limits are too high.
