Have you had to deal with a credit card that has been compromised?
To restate: has someone hacked your account and logged expenses that weren’t yours?
I’ve had a succession of these irritable moments, when I received a text message and a phone call that a rat was apparently at work.
My Hawaiian Airlines Master Card, I was told, likely was compromised. Bless the watcher/whistleblower, who flagged one charge and was right. A sum – not mine – was logged from Florida and thank Lord someone sniffed this foul play.
But three times, over two years? Humbug, yeah?
This incident required the termination of the victimized card and a new replacement card; the result is that sites where I have automatic charges had to be informed and this card was immediately halted.
A replacement with a new number arrived via express mail, so now it’s business as usual.
But applause, to the scrutinizers, for sniffing out a crook. They are unsung heroes.
