Just a reminder :

I hope you folks watch your accounts and statements.

My card was hit with a popular fraudulent PayPal charge. It is not from PayPal , the scammers use various company names.

if you find a charge you suspect; google search it. I did this and a large amount of information is out there on it.

It has been a couple years since my last fraud situation on my card...

Talking to "my" bank security person with a deep off shore accent... We went thru security questions that you answer on your profile.

Then: he started asking me what I label: "test questions",

Former addresses. We have lived here for 18+ years. I told him I dont remember former addresses.

Next one was: I thought he was (deep accent) asking me what color my Nissan Ultima was. I told him I dont own a Nissan

He asked me my last work position for ##### : A company I have never heard of. I told him I have never worked for that company

Next one was about who my Auto loan was with and the payment amount. I told him I dont know the amount, it is auto pay and the loan company was none of his business. He persisted on the auto loan amount

At that point I was getting whizzed off and told him that.

So, my card was cancelled, new card on the way because my card has been compromised. I refrained from calling him Captain Obvious.

Shocked

I've had 3 new cards in the last year. These all have the chip that was supposed to be better. Almost always, there's a charge from something in Europe. Sometimes they call and tell me my card is pulled and a new one is on the way. They never tell me what happened. I just figure it's the way it is now. I check my account every couple of days.

I've had it both ways. Credit card compy calls me & I call them. The Harbor Freight fiasco couple yrs ago. My bank called me, told me new cards were on the way. I prefer that method, simpler than what I went thru saturday

This one yesterday was a charge from PayPal Tire n Tint for 1.98 ... I had no idea PayPal had an Auto store.

Freind of mine from high school... about 4 yrs ago. Noticed a 11.98 dollar charge on her statement. she asked her husband: he says ... nope.

Turns out her deal was from Russia and had been on their account for several months.

Most of the charges I've had, haven't been large. My thought was the thief thought if it was small, it would go un-noticed. However, how about they wait a month or two and if it doesn't get caught, they hit the account for a large charge and vanish. You have 30 days to report so unless you go on a long vacation to somewhere with no services, you should catch it.

Bob, I love it! I sometimes like to string them along until they get P.O.'d and hang up on me. About 4 years ago we noticed a charge of of $5.98 showed up on our statement for about 3 months. When checked it was a charge in Japan for some sort of on-line video game account. My bank has also replaced cards for me at least 3 times in the last 5 years due to erroneous charges. I got mixed up in the Home Depot fiasco a couple years ago.

I've received many of the bogus "local" phone scam callers... They use a fake number that is the same as your area code and the first 3 digits of your phone number.

If I decide to answer the phone, which is seldom: These guys will ask If I am the home owner. I tell them "you have reached Amway. Would you like to place your Amway order? "" They hang up

I file credit cards under "Why would anyone want that?" and only answer calls from known contacts. My own number has called me twice. I answered once to see if I was trying to get a hold of myself. Laughing

In typical "Customer service" fashion :

I received the new card monday after noon... UPS express mail.

Monday nite late or early tuesday morning. I receive an email telling me the express envelope would arrive soon. Laughing

I got an email from Discover this am about a charge on my card from HP HPCOM for $1.00. I called the Discover number and talked with an agent. Answered a couple questions, and a new card is on its way.
