Card Theft

Wow.

Got an email from our credit card company asking me to verify information to confirm an unusual charge. I suspected it might be a fraudulent email, so I called the company directly, and found that it was legitimate. Someone had stolen our credit card number from a card we haven't used or carried a balance on since 2006 and charged several hundred dollars' worth of merchandise out of the country. The card company was contacting us to confirm that this was a valid charge, which it obviously wasn't.

They cancelled the card and are not charging us, but that was pretty scary, considering the last time the card was used was August 2006.

It's weird because we only used the card three or four times, I'd have to go back and see if it was online or in person purchases.

Be careful with your cards, folks!!!!!!!
