I've just had a couple of e-mails from a company called Intuit thanking me for my order and updating my account.

Needless to say I have no account.

Now Intuit seem to be a fairly legit company so does anyone know if they've been compromised?

You don't normally get a warning before unauthorised transactions, but it's a bit worrying.

Not sure what action to take other than inform my card companies.

Anybody had anything similar?

Why not phone them or email them?

Sorry Gandalf. Already done that.

As they seem a legit company (they publish "quicken" which I think I've heard of) I've warned them that I do not accept any order or debt to them.

As it's still Sunday over there (they're a US company) no reply yet.

They've also sent me the full postal address of the person who allegedly placed the order, seems like a perfectly normal Maryland address, so just in case they're just an ordinary punter like me I will send them a snail mail mail warning them their account's been compromised

They are a well-known company selling financial software to home and small business users (although they no longer support Quicken itself). They have a branch in the UK (Chertsey, I believe); last time I rang them the customer services number was 0800 585058 - worth a try!

You will need to give the customer and order numbers (presumably on the e-mails) for them to check the actual details and delivery address.
