Work pays for mine, therefore I feel obligated to more or less leave it on when I get a signal, otherwise, mine would be off all but about five minutes a day.

Most of my cards have low credit limits, hence they would be worthless for high ticket items. It's my way of making sure if somebody does get a hold of my card number, it's going to be useless to buy airline tickets or expensive merchandise.

If the credit card company tries to increase the credit limit, I always tell them not to.

Discover card has a program you install on your PC that will automatically populate your online checkout page with single use credit card information as well as all of your address data. Very useful, especially if you don't trust online vendors. The single use credit card number expires after you use it once.

I think Visa has a similar process that you can sign up for, but I haven't heard about it in a while, so maybe they discontinued it...

Just had a look at my account online today while paying bills and there have been another couple of purchases, one in US dollars and one in Canadian dollars. All up just under $400 Aussie dollars. It was on the old number (the bank issued me a new card and number) so it was easy to tie them into the original fraud.
All together they have used my card to purchase almost $5,500.00 worth.
The bank is going to let me know what the outcome of their investigation into who was using it and how they got my number. I don't hold out much hope of them finding who, but you never know.

One thing I really hate about the statements is that you can spend 10 minutes wondering who the hell hoses&panties pty ltd is. Only to relise it's the parent company for the local car mechanic. Smile

I did rung by the CC company one day. Lots of petrol expenses, motel, lift tickets. It was me on holiday. It felt good knowing that they are looking aftyer you er themselves.

I guess these must have been online transactions which take a while to bounce on a cancelled card? If the bank is still monitoring things so closely they must think they have to chance of catching the perp. If they do it will be interesting to find out how he/she got your card details.

If they do get whoever was using the account, they said they would tell me how they did get the number and I will certainly let you know. It is my account that I only basically use for Paypal and Amazon. Other than that I have used in in a travel agents about 3 years ago.

When I worked in Sydney a few years ago, we did a lot of overseas travel thru Africa, the Middle East and Asia and used corporate AMEX cards.

One day the guy in the next office to me got a call from AMEX, he called me in and put it on speaker phone after they'd identified themselves. It went something like this.

AMEX: Are you in Tokyo?

Workmate with a fairly European family name: No.

AMEX: Your AMEX card has just been presented at a shop in Tokyo by a man of Asian apperance. The shop was suspicious that he didn't look like a man named "workmate's family name here". We're advising them not to accept the card.

Workmate: Oh, good.

AMEX: Yeah, they've told ud that he's just been arrested.

Apparently my workmate had paid for a meal in Bangkok a couple of weeks earlier and his card must've been swiped under the counter and a duplicate card manufactured. Just goes to show that these card counterfeiters are an international lot, and the card companies are on their toes.

Some companies and/or banks are better than others. Amex is one of the better ones which is kinda ironic because nobody outside the US (and certain Bangkok restaurants) accepts it these days Laughing

In the USA they are called ATM's for Automatic Teller Machines. Of course some people call them "ATM Machines". Department of Redundancy Department, I guess. We also call the secret numbers PIN Numbers LOL LOL You'll have to wiki that one.

I love Amex. I use it for 95% of all my purchases, including my donation to 419Eater via Paypal. Never had a bit of problem except being turned down on its acceptance.

I talked to my VISA issuing bank today. It took them 16 days to post a payment and they ended up billing me $22 in interest and a late fee. I have never complained before to them. I was just glad that they reactivated my card when they stranded us in Switzerland. It was also a VISA card that got shut down for a weekend.

It took an 8 minute phone call and I was very civil but they took that credit card fraud right off my bill.

Amex keep sending me all kinds of tempting offers to take up their Silver, Gold, Platinum, Black, Titanium, Dilithium card which is very nice of them but it would be of almost no use to me either here in Australia or on my occasional visits to the UK. Nobody wants Amex. So I stick with Visa, warts and all.

Hey Gnash your right!

Amex ? WTF would a retailer want to acccept a product that charges double that of any other card. It's all cool if your charging for labour and product but if your in retail with margins as slim as 5-28% why would you want to loose an extra 3%.
Any body ever seen those barter companies ?

I could start a whole new thread on dishonest legal companies Smile

There are scams and there ARE scams just some are sanctioned by the powers that be.
