Starbucks coffeeholic? You may want to think twice using a gift card for your grande mocha latte next time. Starbucks’ gift cards have been hacked easily many times due to Starbucks not requesting user final approval and forcing stronger passwords. The hacker has been replenishing gift cards and then transferring the funds to his account. The victim gets an alert and thank you for the credit and that’s it. By that time, it’s too late. So, the moral of the story is pay out of pocket or via credit card, not gift card, next time. #HackedCaffeine #newyorkcomputerhelp
