    How the heck did they get your pin number to be able to do that?

    They didn’t have my pin. They made a duplicate card and somehow got the pin changed to what they wanted. My pin is not written down anywhere and I had possession of the original card.

    The bank noticed a $400 ATM withdrawal in L.A. ten minutes prior to me using the card in Utah. My transaction was declined and they called a few minutes later.

      I’d change credit card providers and even banks if they can’t seem to give notice to you through a voice, text, or email that your pin was changed. The second the pin was changed if you got a notice you could have put a stop to the fraud with a single phone call before any transactions could have been completed.

        Or maybe they thought the PIN code change was from me or they had someone on the inside. I suppose it’s possible a restaurant, for example, would have my cc number and an employee saw me enter the pin. I dunno.

        Whomever is doing this are not amateurs.
