When you go out to eat to restaurants and go grocery shopping, gas ect. Do you use a debit card or do you use cash?


If you use debit/credit has your account ever been compromised? Skimmed? My mom had it happen yesterday. Card was skimmed and used far away at a grocery store for a even $200. Bank declined and locked her card.

Quoting Mrs.Bryant1201:

Oh man if that happened to us I would flip shit on him! I would be sooo mad he payed for porn! too many free sites to pay for it! Such a waste of money! :( Him sitting on the couch with his head down denying it. That would be kinda funny.

Quoting AdellesMom:

LOL!! That's be very awkward!



Quoting Mrs.Bryant1201:

Well i guess thats better then him using it for online porn! Then getting into a fight with your husband about it. Him denying it, you being pissed. Awkward!

Quoting AdellesMom:

It sucked bad! LOL





They did find the WOW account. Nerdy gamer dude hacked into something and got some credit card numbers. I don't know what happened to him though. lol






Quoting Mrs.Bryant1201:

Oh man, that had to suck! at least she was polite about it. They couldn't find the WOW account? I would join and look for that person online! My dh is a gamer also. If its not gamefly or playstation network, time to be pissed! 

Quoting AdellesMom:

My bank did. I was out, and I was trying to figure out why my debit card wasn't going through. I knew had more than enough to cover my purchase. So, I called my bank. They said that someone had charged some crazy things to my account. Stuff for video games. At first, I thought it was hubby. He's a gamer. But, it wasn't him. He doesn't play WOW. LOL







The second time, I was treating my Bishop to dinner, and the card didn't go through. It was embarrassing. Thankfully, the waitress was nice and didn't say that the card didn't go through in front of him! LOL








Quoting Mrs.Bryant1201:

My mom works in fraud claims. She has seen some crazy shit. Alot of out of state charges. Who caught it first? You or the bank?

Quoting AdellesMom:

Yes. The first time it was some kind of hacker. The second time it was someone from New Jersey.









Quoting Mrs.Bryant1201:

Thats good! Some banks take forever to process claims. Did they ever figure out who did it?

Quoting AdellesMom:

Yes, twice. Thankfully, my bank resolved it in a timely manner.











Quoting Mrs.Bryant1201:

Ever had anything happen to your account?

Quoting AdellesMom:

Credit or debit. I hardly carry cash anymore.

debit, almost exclusively. I hate carrying around more than $50-60 cash. I did have some fraud on my account once.. said my card was swipped in CA at a walmart a couple times.. the total was like $247. I got my money back, no hassle at all.

I dunno it was us bank... I'm with Usaa now

Quoting Crazy-Steph:

You need to find a new bank!  Most banks credit your account for the amount within 24 hours.  Then they fight on your behalf.  Why would they freeze your account?

Quoting Anonymous:

I couldn't I had bills to pay and if I disputed it it would freeze my account until it was resolved whuch takes a couple Weeks to a couple months



Quoting Crazy-Steph:

Did you dispute it through your bank?

Quoting Anonymous:

Cash. I use to pay with my debit till a $40 bill was charged as $400 after I signed for the $40 . Restaurant refused to give back the $360
