I got a call from discover card today asking me if I stopped by Home Depot today to make a $1500.00 purchase, I said no. They asked me if I stopped by Gamestop and spent $200.00, I said no. Then they asked me if I stopped by Olive Garden for lunch haha, I said I wish!
I shred EVERYTHING! I'm really careful about this and do everything I can to prevent this from happening and it still happened. Ugh! They are taking care of it so I didn't lose any money, thank goodness, I can't afford to do my own home improvements let alone pay for others...
Has something like this happened to you? I'm just curious as to how common this is?

OMGosh sorry .Some people.Several years ago I got a bill from a credit card that had a bit of a high rate but we had a line of credit for 25,000.00 on it,We would use it once a month or so just to use it.When I opened it the charges were around 40 thousand dollars with all numbers ,no names of stores except the one restaurant I had used .Called immediately and they put me through to fraud.Quickly they got back to tell me it was Czeck and in an electronics store,They also knew we had not been out of the country in 3 years hmmm they had checked every account we had ever.So they took it off except the next month was the interest and a charge for not paying the bill on time,They were then bought by another major card company and it took 7 more months to get it cleared.On a month then off a month continuing to accrue interest charges and those fees.Retired uncle/Judge wrote a letter and the Sr,V.P. called us..all fixed
