    Default Had my bank card used , again !!!

    Jeez, for the 2nd time in a year my bank card details have been stolen and used, £90 Tuesday on mobile phone top ups, and £130 yesterday. My card has been stopped now, leaving me with no card for a week !! scumbags, I am careful with my card, never let it out of my sight, the fraud squad said they have the three csv numbers from the back, the only place I put it online is Paypal, which seems a bit suspicious to me , everything else I buy online I use a credit card for protection ..

    Well peeved, I am offshore at the moment and have to try and get home now without me card !!!

    The only card I ever use online is the company one for this reason.

    If I need anything from ebay I have to get someone else to buy it then pay them. A bit of a pain but not as much as having your details nicked.

    PS don't do internet banking either, even though I'm the UK network manager for a bank (not high street).

    ive had this happen to me before, over £100, over several transactions, all to 3 mobile phone network. told bank and everything was sorted within a few days.
    i do just about all my shoppin online and i do all my bankin online.

    i imagine its not so much what websites u use, but what computer (internet and virus security) u use.

    I keep my card in my wallet, which is in my pocket all the time, as it is when I am offshore. they have said it is defo my card and not the wifes as well. 1 thing which has crossed my mind though is that I paid for a room at travelodge with it online, and that is on the network here at work, could someone get my details off the network ??

    Thumbs up

    Sorry to hear about that Bainie.

    Just a quick thought - do you keep your statements in paper form/ throw away regularly etc?

    I know its basic - but lots of fraud involves ppl going through your rubbish etc collecting data - then using your personal details to do things like this.

    Hope you get sorted. Matt

    I shred all my papers, but the bank is all paperfree anyway, I started shredding after i got done last time, thought I was really careful now, it just shows you ...

    3 Month old nipper at home at the moment, so anyone brave enough to go through my rubbish deserves a payout
