major fraud occurs from WITHIN the card companies themselves!
i called my card company about a trip overseas and simply 2 hours later got a fraud alert call from the same card company.
feeling "safe" about the card companies using people named "fred" or "dave" or Joe who have a poor ability to speak english clearly?
Most credit cards can be programmed to let the owner know when a purchase is being made, either by text or email or both. You can even set it to notify you at a certain dollar amount. .01 or whatever you like.
With this feature you know instantly if some one is using your card. If your spouse has the same card, you can even see their activity.
You can set this up online or call your card company.
Safest way to monitor it yourself !!
I clue to all, Sure Debit Cards are easy but also easy targets----so why use them?
Just throw them out and get a credit card one with protection!
