My credit card was compromised
I got a call from the fraud prevention department of the card's issuer today ... my corporate credit card had been "compromised". I checked and my card was still in my wallet.
Apparently someone tried to spend more than $300 in a grocery store in Texas using my card number. Yep, Texas! They were denied and it threw up some red flags to the issuer so they called to check with me.
It's been a quiet summer and I haven't used the card much so it's hard to know when my card info was stolen ... and how did the info make its way all the way to Texas?!
This card has been cancelled and they are going to issue a new one to me.
Has this ever happened to you?
