Ugh, so frustrating and scary at the same time!  Please don’t stress yourself too much, it already seems like you guys are being diligent with your transactions/cards/etc.  Thank goodness your bank caught it so early.

That’s annoying!

I had my debit card compromised twice this year in a span of 2 months. I had only been using the new card for a week when it happened the 2nd time. Now I very rarely use it. 

I’m almost 95% certain that I know which store it was that it happened at because I had used my card there both times.

@AB Bride:  haha you are NOT paranoid at all, I get freaked out with that stuff too.  If it was Fi’s information I’d make him deal with it too lol

Can totally relate – my debit card was compromised and the number sold to UK (I am in the states and never been overseas) – they cleared out all my christmas money in one transaction the day after Thanksgiving. Figured it out when I went shopping. It was horrible. I was the one who caught it so I had to report it to the police for a report, my bank, wait on a new card, battle with creditors whose payments bounced… it was a freakin nightmare.

My bank was good to me though. They reversed all the over drafts and bounced check fees and I had my money back in 3 days. But the worst thing was being told “since it was a transaction done overseas, its unlikely anyone will be prosecuted”. They explained that the latest trend is taking a pic of the card with a camera phone and selling the numbers. That card never leaves my sight now. 

I will never visit that Wendys again. ;/
