Square Enix's FFXI Haven for CC Scammers?

My fianee noticed a strange charge on her credit card today - for Square Enix/Play Online. Now, being an avid MMO player I recognised the company in question and went digging.

After failing to get in touch with their non-existant customer service I had a little Google on the topic. This isn't an isolated incident.

It seems that FFXI is a haven for some of the dirtiest scum on the internet - the credit card fraudster. Worse, by all accounts they are not refunding against these legitimate complaints or even taking the right steps (since this has happened to my fiancee today after never going near the game or any disreputable sites).

All a little worrying. Anyone else had a similar experience?
