I just got off the phone with Chase Card Services’ fraud-prevention group. They flagged someone trying to make purchases at a drugstore and a supermarket in Denver using a clone of my credit card.
Good catch by the credit-card company. Two fraudulent attempts, and they caught both of them.
So now my credit card has been deactivated. They’re sending me a new card with a new number. I’ve made alternative arrangements to pay the balance from my old card, because I can’t send payments to the old account number now that it has been deactivated.
It’s inconvenient to lose this account number, since I have so many online accounts linked to it, but it beats getting ripped off. Here’s hoping the scumbag in Denver who did this gets caught and convicted.
And that’s my excitement for the day.
