That is so frustrating. I would think they would have a way to track the specific person if they made multiple purchases using your information…  are they looking into it?

I feel for you, this happened to me about a year ago, someone bought airline tickets, charging my account over $2000. I am happy that the bank credited ur account right away. I was not that lucky it took about a month for me to get the money.

That is so frustrating.  I wouldn’t expect them to do anything about it.  Four of my cards were stolen on Thanksgiving a few years ago and the jerks went to Walmart and tried to use 3 of them in the same checkout (2 were denied and my bank card finally went through).  It took over a month to get the money back in my bank account.  I never heard from the police again except when I called them because I found out my dad’s card was stolen too.

There is a new article in Consumer Reports June 2011 issue about scammers and the way they obtain credit card numbers and pins. I think it’s a must read for everyone.

Here’s another article that gives some tips. The US is pretty behind with protective credit card technology and a lot of people are relying more on debit cards these days. Be careful ladies. Some of these scammers are using “skimmers” that they attach to certain machines and then quickly making fake cards and draining bank accounts like OP.

Here’s the helpful article:

They got me too. Much less than you but still. It fucking sucks. 

ETA: By “they” I mean thieves in general. My douchebag apparently lives in Germany.
