Fraud alert question!

I checked my on-line baking today and discovered 2 charges to my debit card that I didn't recongize. I called PNC and they said they were from a service-station in BRAZIL. From what she could tell me, the charge was made with a "swipe" transaction, so the card was copied or something.



Now my question: Should I go ahead and place a fraud alert on my credit information?


I don't normally carry my credit cards with me, unless I know I'll be using them (and I haven't used them since November). All my cards are accounted for. I've changed my passwords to my credit card log-in as well as on-line banking. I can't think of anything to do.


If you recommend to place a fraud alert, how would I go about doing it? Thanks!
