Credit Card Fraud

Posted in Money, Mr. Charming, Stores tagged , , , at 9:07 pm by smilinshell11

So yesterday morning I am sitting at work.  A gal calls and says she is with VISA  and would like to verify some charges on our credit card.  She asks if I had spent $960 at a Wal-Mart in Georgia and about 20 minutes later at a gas station for gas.  I tell her that’s interesting considering I’m sitting here at work and Mr. Charming is in Las Vegas.   I called Mr. Charming to verify his card wasn’t stolen out of his wallet which it wasn’t.  They ended up closing the account and filing a fraud report. Mr. Charming and I are VERY careful about where we use our cards (as far as online) and shredding things that have our numbers on them.  It’s more of an inconvenience than anything.  I’m am VERY thankful to VISA and our bank BECU for being on top of things.

Hopefully it was just a one time thing and something more doesn’t become of it (as in identity theft).
