Watch out

Not sure if this is widespread or just my luck.

The other day I noticed a purchase on my company bank card for AppleStore.com for $1.00. I didn't think nothing about it for $1.00. I figured I would call the bank the next day because it was around midnight. ( I don't have an ipod, Ipad or Iphone) Tonight I noticed I got hit for $4,517.14 for tickets on AIRFRANCE. Needless to say I'm pissed, credit card is now cancelled, bank account under investigation and did I mention I"M PISSED!!!!!!!!!!
No one has my card, I have it. No one but A/C supply houses have it on file and I know no one going out of the country.

I was told by the bank they will normally do a very small purchase like $1.00 to make sure the card is working then big purchases like $4,500.

Just giving everyone a heads up to watch out. I would love to find out who did this and a whole lot be we all know that won't happen.

Damn, that sucks. What really sucks is thats the same thing a lot of companies will do, like gas stations/hotels/strip clubs etc. Charge a small amount, then charge the whole amount- which is really bad because it blends in.

Good luck with it all. And thanks for the heads up.

Watch out

Had a buddy who was getting like $10 withdrawn from his account for over a year on a weekly basis. Never noticed it cause it was a small amount. Ended bring alot when he finally realized what was going on.

that just happened to me and my wife on our discover card, we never use it and she just happen to use it at our local store for like 3 bucks and then all of a sudden got hit for 2300 from several different stores...stores we never go to. needless to say she caught it in time and discover took care of it and we are ok now. but it sucks because of the time spent on the phone and waiting to see what they do about it.
