Where are these reports?There are multiple recent reports of Coles MasterCard gift cards being compromised, especially the $100 and $250 ones. They appear to be used at merchants that do not check CVV on the cards, ironically Google Play is one of them, seems that card numbers are brute forced along with expiry dates. If anyone has a stash of unused Coles MCs suggest you check the balance and use it up asap.
I've used more than 250 of these cards this year alone, no problems at all.
