2nd time in 8months, on a new card this time. It's a credit card so not used for cash withdrawal, I never let it out of my sight, shred all documentation. Don't know where they're getting details from!
Are you swiping it any where? Readers can steal your number and create havoc with your account. It happened to my Brother in Law at a Hess station. Herself had it happen at a restaurant, TWICE.
There's something weird with it all. I've had a couple of cards used fraudulently which were still in their envelopes never having been taken out or used/swiped ANYWHERE. Eventually the bank said well it must be the postman so they had the card sent directly to the bank using whatever internal mechanism they use and by the time I went to pick it up from the branch they said erm really sorry but it's been used fraudulently.
Now, I accept people must be able to generate valid numbers but you'd think they'd need the CVV and all sorts these days :/
All I can say is, I know for sure that you don't need to have swiped or used your card for it to be stolen these days :(
Happened to me in February for the first time. Still working with the CC company to get the last two charges removed. The card was being used in NY (where I haven't been since 1990) and was being swiped even though the card was still in my possession. Why do some people have to be so xxxxx!! Luckily this card had a low limit because it's the only one I use over the internet and I caught it quickly. Unfortunately the CC company is a bunch of idiots.
I never swipe my CC at the gas pump anymore. I always go inside to pay.

I had a call from my cc company when we were in Florida a couple of years ago saying that someone had fraudulently used my card. They asked me if I had another cc that I could use after I told them that I was on holiday [which I had], so they cancelled the card and issued another one.
To be honest I was really impressed that they had picked up on this, especially as its mis-use was only for a small amount.
yeah I must admit many years ago I had american express do the same but in fairness to them, they had someone drive to my hotel in the states with a new card. I dont know if they're still that good but it impressed me at the time
