My Credit Card Was Hacked

Oh, what fun.

I just found a “dubious”charge on my credit card and the phone number for the “merchant” listed goes straight to voice mail. My credit card company is handling it (Yay Team USAA!) and the charge is being removed, but my card has been shut down for security reasons and a NEW card will arrive in 7-10 business days.

Let me just state, for the record, that I hate the fact that I will have to enter my new credit card number every time I am buying something on line for the foreseeable future. I don’t know WHY walking away form the computer, finding my purse, getting my credit card out of my wallet, and typing in the number chafes my rump, but it does. It is just such an irksome break in my routine, maybe?

Anyway, this is a friendly PSA to check your credit card statements thoroughly for crouching merchants, hidden charges.
