Default so apparently I was running a shoping spree in NYC today (bank fradud :( )

Apparently I bought a few hunderd dollars worth of Gucci in NYC today, Dropped another bill at Uniqlo (wtf is that anyone. I buy at kohls, marshalls, old navy, and target), and ate at Five guys in LaGuardia today.

Kind of hard to do while I was at work all day in Texas

Bank called me and is taking care of it but I have to sign all these documents before I get my money back. BOO


and to the [email protected]#$s that stole my DC number. I hope you go to prison where someone will have their way with your sorry rear.

The worst part is you don't even get to keep the stuff.

Somebody went on a **** spree with my card a few years ago. I was pissed. I didn't even get to watch it!

Join ze club. I dealt with bank fraud for several months, and just got it all settled away. Didn't take much, but it was enough to be annoying. Little charges here and there added up to several hundred dollars worth.

I'm ----.
I write down every expense I make from the. .89 candy to the 1000k grad school semester tuition bill on a ledger that I use to balance my living expenses/checkbook. Its how I live under my means. I can tell you what I have spent on for the last 4~5 years by going through these things. I can call out a fradulent .50 cent charge.

All you guys who had problems, was this from:

Check fraud?
Someone using your ATM card info?
Wire transfer fraud?

What?

It's happened to me 5 or 6 times, maybe more. I'd say that in the majority of cases, the numbers were stolen online somehow. Either by hacking into a site that stores my card numbers or trojan horses on my computer I would think.

Mine were all internet purchases. They had my debit number and enough of my info to use it to purchase things.

Damn guys this is one situation where a credit card would save your *** instead of burn it. Just pay the plastic bastard off in full each time

I do. Every time, without fail. The charges just showed up when I checked my account online. Give the bank a phone call. Wait for papers to sign in the mail. Mail papers back, postage-paid. Problem solved.

I don't understand how not paying off the card in full would prevent this situation.

I always heard your cc # gets stolen (not in this case, obviously) when you make a purchase and hand the cashier the card.

Ones where you do your own swipe are safe.

apparently now with cards that have passive information devices installed (think IRFD) people can even yank your info when walking next to you by scanning your device.

That's why I don't use my DC online - I strictly use CC or paypal - they can rack up $10k on a CC and it doesn't hurt me in the pocket book directly (or ever as I'm not paying for it!). About every 6months, I request a new DC anyway and cancel the old one, does it help? Dunno - but haven't had any issues and it's a shiny new card!
