People are stealin the card numbers and rackin up the charges in the US and overseas. It happened to me Saturday night. And it doesn't matter if you use it online or just at any store. Just be careful. I'm dealin with nothin but cash anymore!!!!



Ok everyone that keeps saying its been going on for forever. Yes I know this. I'm just trying to be nice. It's just gotten really bad in my area.

I had someone do this to me last week. I had a strange 3 cent charge on my account. I had to contact my bank, report it as a fraudulent charge and cancel my card. I was told it was someone testing my card but since I religiously check my account everyday, sometimes several times a day, I caught it before they could charge my card again. I hear they have these scanner things where they can walk by you in stores and scan your purse or wallet to get all your card numbers...very scary. I am dealing with mostly cash these days now too.
