I got an automated call from my bank yesterday. I thought it was a survey thing so I didn't rush to call them back. Boy was I surprised when I did! Seems someone in Mexico was trying to use my debit card and they stopped it.

I am very very greatful!

According to fraud protection it was 2 purchases of less then $5 in Connecticut and then $30 and $500 in Mexico. All of those charges were denied. That card is cancelled and I will be getting a new one. Thankfully it was only my checking account card and I have all the alerts turned on!

Sorry that this happened to you..I never thought these types of scams happened until someone cleaned me out and I was in the middle of closing on my house, thank God Bank of America returned the money too me within two or three days I believe, it was several years ago, so I do know these things happen, uuuuugh.. just not right!!! They would not tell me about the investigation either.. I never heard anything about it..who & why..were they proscecuted, still unclear..

That is terrible. I asked the bank if they knew how my number got picked up they said it was probably at a local merchant. I am super super careful. I even ask if they can delete the card swipe machine!
