Default Call from my bank

I just get a call from my bank asking me about a purchase to Walmart.com for a large amount of money also about a purchase in Oklahoma City another large amount of money Neither of which did I make. Thank God I pay for ID protection as both purchases were denied And the card shut down !! How the hell do they get my card # ?

I LOVE me some Rbfcu !!!!

Shouldn't have to pay extra for that service but good thing they caught it! I work for a bank--stuff happens all the time. Luckily, fraud protection is getting better so these suckers don't get away with it!

Skimmer got your card no. They can do it with your card still in your pocket.

Same thing happened to me a couple months ago. They tried to use mine to rent a limo in Toronto. Charge denied and card shut down.

I think shopping online triples your chances of fraud happening. I have 1 credit card that I use for all online purchases only, it has fraud charges once or twice a year for the last 4 years. My debit card & other credit card are never used online, only locally, and I had fraud charges only once between both those 2 cards in the same 4 year span.

They got me on my honeymoon. Went to pay for a big dinner with the wife and BAM card declined. I had plenty of cash on me though. I called my mom, who is also my banker to look at my account and they got me for right at $500 which is what I keep in my checking at all times. They really liked some donut shop in NY as they spent almost all 500 there.

If it done on a credit card there are card readers that can be purchased for less than $100 that can scan your cards while in your wallet. Had it happen to me over a year ago at a Kroger store. Notice the guy with the scanner and assumed it was an employee. WRONG. Had a call the next day where 2 orders were made on-line: one less than $200 to check the validity of the card. The other at a BJ's Warehouse for a large screen tv. My card company and BJ's questioned it as it was being sent do a different address and called me. All thieves should be hung or planted in a fire ant hill!

Did they ask you to verify your account number or passwords?

My mom got online to deposit some money to her account and saw my brothers account balance dropping by the second.

Somebody in Mexico was pulling out $300 at a time- and did about 4 transactions before my Mom shut it down and called BoA.. They refunded the money thankfully but I find it funny I got a call when I made a purchase on a Louisiana roadtrip but they don't call for activity in Mexico

There are a million and one ways for them to get your info. An easy hack into a system and they can take all the card numbers they want. You could have used your card 1 time and then locked it in a safe and someone could still get your number. The card compromises happen way more than you think. Heck I would be willing to bet you are 1 of 5000-20000 cards that got hit.

I used to travel a lot and had that happen several times. If traveling, I call the credit card company and give them dates and locations. My wife checks charges every day.

They should allow us hunters to hunt them down. Heck, sell tags and make some money.
