I am currently on the phone with my bank, and the man on the phone just told me $1000 was taken out of my account in the last ten minutes in three transactions unauthorized by me. Have you ever experienced credit card theft?
Omg! That's terrible. I hope you get it resolved quickly.
Yes, once someone stole my debit card # and bought plane tix. Another time someone stole my ss#, opened a phone line, and made >$3000 worth of calls to the psychic friends network >:(
I have. I have also found that thousands had been withdrawn from my bank account without my knowing. Found out it was my spouse. That's much worse than credit card theft.
Attempted. Visa once called me to ask if I was at a mall in Costa Mesa making a $500 shoe purchase. I said hell no I'm at home in my underwear, so they took care of it and sent me a new card.
A few years back. Some swine stoke my debit card number and drove all over Florida and filled up stolen cars. The bank deactivated the card, and reimbursed me after I filed a report with the police. Sign of the times.
Yeah, someone in Australia bought about $20k in booze on my Amex.
The money was credited back to me within an hour.
Yes, Barnes & Noble online. 20+ books purchased in under 6 mins. Thankfully, I had email alerts set-up on my credit card.
I'm shocked you would be creating a SOH poll while on the phone for so important a situation!
I wasn't worried. As long as they know you didn't authorize the transactions you'll get your money back.
Nonetheless, seems odd one would be posting on SOH while on that call. Later? Believable. During? Not so much.
I don't care if you don't believe me. What point are you trying to make here?
I was on hold for a while and thought it'd be an interesting question, and I wasn't worried in the slightest because this happened to my mom and she got all her money back
^ and there is your evidence sir. Google the number and you'll see it is a 1-800 Chase bank number for card support regarding transactions and reporting them.
By the way, don't ever call me a liar again.
Hmmm, your poll says the $1000 came out of your account, now it came out of your moms? Hilarious
I didn't call you a liar, simply said it seems odd you would post on SOH while dealing with that situation. You have now proved yourself a liar.....your account, oops your moms account LMFAO
I said "I wasn't worried because this happened to my mom and she got all her money back" meaning a *past* anecdote of my mom's which caused me not to worry in *this* situation. Do you lack the reading comprehension skills to deduct that Mr. Holmes?
Oh no I called you that again......whatcha gonna LIAR?
Did you not hear what I said you childish imbecile? I said "I wasn't worried" and I gave the reason for not being worried, the reason being "this happened to my mom and she got her money back". If you lack the deductive reasoning skills for that I'm
sorry but we are done here.
My name is Jay, not Holmes! Sorry to disappoint you LIAR
Oh oh I called you a LIAR again....you told me never to do that again....so what exactly are you going to do about it?
lol that doesn't bother me. You're just being annoying at this point. Don't you have any other cases to crack Mr. Holmes?
Oh OK I get it, your implied threat not to "ever call you a liar again" has a consequence of you calling me Holmes. Harsh LOL. I love outing SOH LIARS
Obvious troll is obvious
In fact, I'm not even sure her name is drooski. Just what is she trying to pull here?
It's happened to us a couple of times. That's why I check our account online at least every other day.
Yes twice! It's a bummer I'm sorry :/
Yes, but nothing that serious. Someone just bought me some porn site memberships using my ATM card after I purchased gas with the card.
Did that work with your wife? ;-)
LOL! She knows I would never pay when there is so much free porn out there. ;-)
Yes, twice somebody used my American Express card even though I still had the "real" one in my wallet. Both times all charges were removed immediately.
Yep. Bunch of charges a few months back. I saw them and called. Fixed immediately.
Hope things get fixed for you. Keep us updated.
Damn, that sucks. At least you caught it in real-time
I don't have a credit card, but I have had that happen. Twice. Once with a travel debit card and once with my bank card.
I'm so sorry to hear that! I hope everything gets resolved!
No, this has never happened to me
Twice last year both times my bank caught it, one they tried to buy $900. Worth of gas in Canada, the other in Louisiana, they bought something for, $1.99 then the tried to buy something for $679. All money was returned to my account luckily
That's a lot of gas 0_O
$900 worth of gas?! That's insane! When my friend filled up a U-Haul the pump stopped at $90.
They figure it was some one who had a ranch tank(it's a tank that's at your home so you don't have to run to town to fill up), like mine, but they knew I wasn't in canada!
Ahh! Real Monsters!
That's scary. I hope everything turns out well.
Hehe I love this comment
Yup, and I brought the hammers. Within 24 hours I knew the girl's name, address, and had a pile of evidence to hand over to the police. Their response? It's only a misdemeanor, so we're not going to do anything about it.
That sucks. Sorry drooski, I hope everything works out.
Oh no! I hope the funds are replaced quickly and they catch who did it. I've never had that happen before, myself.
Just 2 weeks ago actually. They only took out $2.49. Luckily I caught it before they could take more.
