Discover Cash Back Craziness!

Last week I got an email from Discover thanking me for buying a gift card with my cash back rewards. I am saving up my cashback and using it as a statement credit down the road so I called and informed them that I did not make a points purchase. They easily reversed the transaction. Yesterday I got another email thanking me for buying a NEW gift card to somewhere else. Apparently someone is stealing my cashback and going on gift card sprees! I had to change all my information. Has anyone else had this happen! I've heard of people stealing credit cards for purchases but it was weird to have someone steal my rewards!

Cards: AMEX BCE (2k), Barclay Arrival Mastercard (4.3K), Chase Freedom (1K), Discover It (1.3k), SECU (2K), CapOne Quicksilver (750)

Current Scores- Experian- 695, Equifax- 689, Transunion-680

Goal- 720 Across the Board

that is crazy. I haven't heard of rewards stealing, but somehow its not so surprising.
