Check your debit and credit card statements for fraud

The recent theft of 1.5 million credit card numbers means more fraud.

I just had $900 in fraudulent ATM charges (which have been reversed. In fact the credit card company spotted it and called me.) The thieves probably took my number, made a fraudulent card with it then withdrew the money. This is serious organized crime.

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

  2. 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.
