Barclaycard compromised again!

Checked my account yesterday and fraudulent charges are there. I shut it down but its 30 bucks to fedex it??

Umm, no. You can mail it, and ill be more than happy to BT my balance away from Barclays ans let this card join Cap1 in the SD drawer.

Re: Barclaycard compromised again!

Sorry that happened!

 

You should look into the deal the PSECU still (I think) has going. BT to your new Visa and I think it is a really low int rate for the next year or so? I am not sure and I have not logged on to check, but take a look... We did one of those a while back and it was like 2.89% through the end of this year. A really nice deal.

 

Barclay is high-dollar. PSECU is great...

Re: Barclaycard compromised again!

Hi  

 

I had a problem with my apple visa barclay, got a call while I was at work thursday night, They said that someone in New Mexico tried to pre auth charges for 20.03, and asked if I gave permission. I said no, card closed, new one on way overnight, no charge.

thats good to hear, im waiting for my apple visa and was skeptical because i realized i appd based on looks instead of overall benefits.. its good to read that they are on top of their game for fraud maybe thats why the apr. is 22% and their rewards are almost nothing :smileyvery-happy:

Re: Barclaycard compromised again!

Sorry to hear about the fraudulent charges, at least you caught them earlier. That is a little ridiculous that they'd charge you so much just to get you a new card.
