    Default Credit Card Fraud !!

    Some low life has stolen my Credit Card details and been using it to top up there mobile phone at £50 a pop. Got my statement through and though WTF, phoned them up and the card is cancelled and the full amounts refunded to me straight away. Last month I never received a statement from them but never really thought anything of it, I will from now on, it`s either been delivered to a wrong address or a theiving postie is away with it !! Always some bstard out to get you nowadays ....

    It`s funny how something you think isn`t significant, like a statement not coming through, is important and it only really dawned on me how important when I saw all the Orange transactions *lol* lesson learned I guess

    Bl00dy Swines, but at least you have you money back, the bu66er now is that you are without the CC for a few days, until a new one is sent out

    Funnily enough I had a letter from my credit card company a few days ago saying there had been suspicious activity on my card - a 50p transaction in the UK then 20mins later a £1 transaction in the US - then an attempt on a £1000-odd transaction with Dabs.Com (surprise, surprise!) about an hour later (which was blocked).

    Called them and the card cancelled and funds returned...

    First time its happened to me since I've had a card (must be 15+ years now) and I don't really have a clue where the details could have been lifted from!

    They seem to be very aware to their credit and very quickly refund fraud, which is reassuring. I can only assume my missing statement is where mine came from, first time for me as well..

    Though I did get caught in the MY-DV fraud at christmas, I got my cash back there as well ..

    A friend of my wifes had her card scammed at a petrol station in Swindon.

    Someone had cloned the numbers and got loads of stuff with it. When she went
    to the Police to tell them categorically it was someone at the petrol station, the
    police got all devil's advocate with her and said how can you be sure, it could
    have been anywhere. Unfortunately for the petrol station it was easily proved it was one of their staff, because she had only ever used the card at their petrol station.
