How did they know it was not you that made to purchase. I just would like to know since I am also a discover card holder.

They usually know because its a purchase made far away from where the cardholder resides.. Example: Cardholder buys a soda at 7-11 i New York at 4:00 on a sunday afternoon and then 20 mionutes later a purchase is attempted in California.. Well, if you were just at 7-11 in New York then you couldn't possibly have been in California 20 mnutes later

Re: I am officially in love....with Discover!

i dont know for sure... my assumption is that since it was walmart.com and not the actual store. Plus it was 4 in the morning.  both are out of character for my spending habits with them.  They verified the last real charges I made... what makes me 'nervous' is that the last place i used that card online was through the discover stores to buy my mother her mothers day gift! 

they are going to send me an email with more information, and then i'll call them to go over it all.

 

of course, paranoid me I tried to sign into my discover online account to see if its been compromised... and they've revolked access.  so all i can think of is that yup it was real.
