Credit Card Fraud

Ok, so I've had a pathetic day. I get a phone call from BB&T (my bank) this morning informing me that two transactions appeared on my account last night from my debit card. Apparently some jack ass decided to do some holiday shopping with my money in Pineville, NC, at a Best Buy store. He/she tried to buy $2411.56 at 9:10pm, and it was declined b/c my daily spending limit is only $200. That didn't work, so they tried $1000, and it too was declined. So of course, now I'm in a panic because the bank proceeds to tell me that they actually are in possession of my card b/c it is being swiped and not manually entered. Which is odd since I have the ONLY card (to my knowledge) and I had it in my wallet. So some @$$hole is in NC on a shopping spree. So I had the guy flag my account and cancelled my debit card. After I got off the phone with him, I called that Best Buy store and talked to the manager and he said they had video surveillance and that law enforcement would have to request it. So in the meantime, I've called my credit card companies, my other bank, and the credit bureau to put flags on all my accounts. So on my lunch break, I mosey on down to the BGPD and explain it to the guy. He said since the crime was committed in NC, the Pineville PD would have to be the ones to file the police report. So now I'm waiting for them to call me back. I'm about to pull a Law & Order move on this guy. I'm gonna track 'em down dammit! :-) I'll keep y'all posted.

Happened to my mom a few mths ago. Keep your cards in check guys! Fixing credit issues is a PITA and if you don't notice it you'll be screwed for a LONG time! I also recommend to get your credit report once/yr and check it for innacuracies.

Call ALL your banks and cancel everything. You'll have all of your new cards in less than 1 wk - just take some $ out of your acct first so you're not left at 0.00. Report this to the credit bureaus. Might be helpful to write one letter and after calling, fax it to them.

aw schulkw, sorry to hear that. Yeah when you notice something wrong, better call and cancel everything.
My bank has this monitoring thing so if 2 same card numbers are charged around the same hour in different places (across cities, etc), they will call me and ask whether I make such transaction. Something like that....

dang that sucks... definately sign up with a company to be able to run credti reports on yourself so you can monitor your accounts... and call ALL the card companies to flag your accounts.

i don't get it though... how did the bank get your card?

The idiot that is pretending to be me is using my check cards from my two banks (which oddly enough I have in my possession).

My cell phone bill is gonna be out the ass next month. I've talked to everyone and been on hold forever.
