Well, I have heard many that have fallen victim to credit card fraud and now we are victims.
Last month, my wife and I took a 12 day vacation to Florida and used one credit card for most of our purchases. We carry a second CC, but don't use it just in case something happens that we can't use the first card. All went well, no problems......that is until we got home and a month later.
The CC company notified us by email, but were skeptical about the included phone number to contact being different than on the back of the card. So, being cautious, we called the number on the card and sure enough there had been a 190$ purchase made on 4/17/15 at Walmart. We told the CC company that we were there in March not in April and in St. Louis the day the card number was used in Orlando. The cards, or course, were cancelled and new ones will be issued. We are not liable for fraudulent purchases and our balance will be corrected.
Great catch by the CC company and thanks to them. I try to log in and check balances often, but had not done it for few days.
Just a note, the wife calls the CC companies in advance of our trips and they make note of it. I think this helps, too.
