@tiny450 - I've had fraudulent charges show up on credit cards several times .. which the credit card companies notified me about, to confirm that it wasn't me. One time a bunch of charges showed up, all made halfway across the country from me, so I know they sell the card numbers, rather than using them locally .. and may hold up on that, so it's not that obvious as to where it might have happened.

 

The police have told me that the volume of these frauds is so high, that the losses are just written off, because they can't bother investigating. But that means you're left feeling violated, and don't have any closure! Smiley Sad

The credit union called and said someone overseas was trying to order $5000.00 worth of stuff off yahoo using my bank card.Since it was only used to buy materials to remodel the house the credit union was able to issue a new card and new accounts.How whoever got my info is behind me the building supply store denied any involvment.Someone sold the info.Since it was overseas the credit union could only track so much.I am glad for the chips now as they apparently are safer.I may never know who did that.
