    Default Had my bank card details stolen

    Went to the bank today to find i had - funds. Strange i thought so got a mini statement, still something not right so went into bank.
    2 days ago there was 2 transactions from my account for online purchase to account based in geneva and yesterday an 02 pre pay topup (which i dont use) so i have been hit for £170.

    The branch have cancelled my card and i called their fraud team and o2. O2 really helpful as were branch but the fraud cant do anything as the fraudulant transaction hadnt cleared yet!!! I did say whell if it hasnt cleared why not cancel it but they cant. They need to let it clear before they can investigate and start recovery of my money.

    So if you are buying online BEWARE

    Sorry to hear about that. I was hit last year after a holiday in Poland. My bank instantly put a halt on my card as they also thought it was strange that I was using my card in Poland and Italy simultaneously. It took about a month to get it all sorted but coop were pretty good and extended the overdraft to make up for the fact that it was 7 days til payday and id been cleared out

    yeah they gave me an overdraft as well so very good. I'm just going to be careful from now on. Actually thinking of getting a pre pay credit card and putting cash on that when i go to buy something. That way if the details do get pinched the thieves wont be able to run anything up.

    Could have been worse it could have been right after payday. I only noticed as i bought 5 litres of oil off a mate who has just changed from petrol to diesel otherwise i wouldnt have been near my account until probably monday by which time god knows what could have gone

    Same thing happened to my mum but she's never bought anything online. First clue was when somebody tried to order something in Holland. 10/10 to the bank though. They phoned her to confirm the purchase so no money was actually taken from the account.

    Any idea how they got your details Graeme?

    Barclaycard now run a system that if you go abroad and are going to use your card then you have to tell them beforehand what country/countries you are going to and the dates beforehand.

    If you don't and you try to use it abroad, they won't let the card work.

    Stops people cloning accounts and trying to wipe your account out from abroad
