Someone Is Using My Credit Card

0 comments suggest edit

Crook Apparently someone went on an online shopping spree with our credit card number. Fortunately the Bank of America protection kicked in before they could do too much damage and we will not be charged for the fraudelent activity. It’s mind bogglingly easy for someone to fraudelently use your credit card. Think about that the next time you hand your credit card to the waiter at the local dive.

In any case, there are a couple of options at your disposal. My friend Walter writes about placing a fraud alert on your credit file as well as the California Credit Freeze option. I highly recommend taking a look at this whether or not you’ve been a victim of credit card fraud.

Walt also writes about Internet Fraud in this post.

    Look you can't pretend that ordering that Mac Mini and 3 linux boxes was from a stolen card number; you're just turning to the dark side

    Hey, how'd you know it was a mac mini and 3 linux boxes? I never mentioned that on my blog. Be expecting an FBI agent at your door any minute now. ;)



    Funny, but one purchase was at Gateway's online store.
