    Makes you want to go back to cash and hiding it in the mattress, eh?

    We too have had these problems. Herself had her number (NOT the card) stolen, and used in JC Penney when JC Penney would not let her use the CARD a couple of weeks prior, yet they took the number only, without ID and allowed charges to go through. Makes no sense. She's also had her card physically stolen (by a person in the building in which she used to work) which was no fun either. Debit cards in both cases.

    Ummm...pardon my ignorance, but what on earth is a toe rag?

    Its a sort of polite British way of calling someone a scoundrel without using excessive language

    Hope you get things sorted out quickly and without too much hassle Michelle

    Grrrrr! Hope you get everything settled soon, Michelle!

    I've been dealing with identity theft for about 10 years. It started with an unsolicited credit card offer in the mailbox, as far as anyone can tell. It still comes back to haunt me periodically. I have one credit card that I use for travel and emergencies, and I check it nearly every day. I don't carry a balance, as it has to be cancelled every year or two when someone pokes around, finds the information and charges the card or electronically accesses my bank account. I'm not even with any of the institutions where it previously happened. How on earth do they do it?

    When Leu and Grandpa Sweetie took their anniversary trip to Las Vegas a couple of years ago, someone appropriated their card information at the restaurant where they had dinner. About $150 for dinner and a $10,000 fraudulent charge. They haven't had any problems since, thank goodness!

    Beware of key logging software or devices on your computers. These software or even devices can be undetectable in some cases.

    Only do your online order from well known websites and from your own computer. I say this because if your doing it in work someone may be watching whether through a video camera, key logging software transmitting either wirelessly or even visually.

    You can obtain these key log devices which attaches to your keyboard physically and they're so small unless you suspect it's there you wouldn't go looking for it. And let's be honest not many people even know you can do it. Be wary, be suspicious when ordering online. If it's a new website do your research, google can find a lot of information regarding businesses. I've even gone through the hassle of checking street view to check if a shop has been where their domain was shown to be registered at.

    Good luck stay safe.

    I always tell the credit card I have the dates I will be in Florida and the only time I use my card is at the Disney resturants or major stores always pay for petrol by cash

    We always use cash for fuel and restaurants. Chris likes to see his card at all times and doesn't like the card machines they bring to the table.









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
