Card fraud [Jul. 5th, 2007|04:17 pm]

... and in other news, at some point in the wee small hours of this morning someone used "my card" to withdraw $500 from my account at a cashpoint machine in New York, NY USA.

So as of about lunchtime today my card has been disabled and a new card and PIN are on their way to me. They should arrive "within seven working days", oh joy. And a big complicated form to fill in online at my local branch of the bank, what fun, to get a refund.

My partner and I had this happen to us a couple of months or so ago...our cards were used in Australia. I confess I was somewhat sarky with personage on the end of the phone from the banks fraud squad when he asked if I was sure I hadn't been to Australia that weekend...because of course, using it in a Birmingham supermarket late one afternoon, using it at an Australia cash point during the early afternoon of the day, and using it again at a Birmingham cash point the day after that, was entirely possible :/

Hope the new card and pin turns up very soon!
