*Note, this is a Debit card, not credit.
I've recently been victim of credit card fraud, and am still feeling quite shocked, and violated.
I'm not entirely sure as to how the details were ascertained, but I knew something was suss almost immediately. On Friday afternoon, I noticed transactions that were not mine, but they were only of 'unavailable balance' status, and I could not actually see what they were. I called up my Bank, asked them if they could identify the suspicious transactions, but they said to call back on Monday! Grrr.
Well, come this morning, the transactions finally appear. All sorts of dodgy things. $120 all up in total! Fortunately I kept money out of the account when I became concerned.
One transaction which is particularly concerning, is some sort of credit-line company over in the US. I read up as to what they are, and they basically issue 7500 credit, 100% approval rate! I really thought that sort of nonsense was over with in the states
I have of course had the card blocked, and they're going to issue me a new one. They've also sent me a form for pay-disputes that I must now fill out in order to attempt to get a refund on these transactions, at any rate - this has all been quite stressful!
The one bill that has me concerned, is from this mob
Would anyone advise that I contact the Police over this? I'm not sure if it's overkill or not, as thus far I believe that I have everything back under control ...
Any advice would be great guys.
