 Considering that the AU charges are on the main card holder this savings can be justified but also means that in the case of fraud there is no way to know who was targeted.

 

 

 

Well that explains a lot, thanks!

Re: Hopefully last update

It's been a fun morning.  Capital One is still working on removing charges however two of the 8 they were not aware of, (8 charges to the same place within 7-8 hrs.)  So hopefully those two will go "poof" in the night or wherever here shortly.

I have never been on the stupid phone so much in my life as I have since picking up credit cards.  4th fraud in 3 months on 4 different cards, yay me! Only two of which were mine but I got the JOB to sort it all out.Smiley Mad

I'm sitting and watching TV and I get a text. I looked at it and it was for a $48 transaction at mixed chicks. Never heard of them. I had CO shut the card down within 5 min and a new card on the way.

Yep, that's happened to us too, just like that.

 

Having 8 bank cards is like having 8 cars. If one goes in the shop, no biggie, I have 7 others. Maybe I wanted that particular one for something, but the other 7 can fit the purpose almost as well. Good One!

 

I think it's funny when it happens. I just wanna find them and punch'em in the face! (hate Thieves and Liars)Smiley Mad

Re: Skimmed in the ER

UPDATE:

The last three charges removed were put back on again today. Still under investigation.  Will this stupid S@#$ ever end?

Re: Skimmed in the ER

@GApeachytotally don't understand. When it has happened to me on various credit cards the lenders immediately froze the account and closed it. Removed all charges and opened a new account with all new information! Why is this so difficult to do?

 

It has happened to me on brand new accounts that the card just arrived and I had not even activated? Yes, I did read a posting that Scammers now have software that runs random credit card numbers and when they get a hit go in for the kill!

Sad! Smiley Sad

Re: Skimmed in the ER

We seem to be on a Merry-go-round.

No one has used this acct. since Sept.  All the Fraud Oct 7th and 8th.  Not touching this card/acct.  It's dead to ds.  Gonna wait this out; close it and be done with it.

Re: Skimmed in the ER

I had fraud twice on my Gold Card at gas stations and once on my BCP for an Amazon purchase. 

 

I didn't know if it was a shady parking lot or a hole in the wall spot I was going to eat at. They watched my Gold card for a week and when the second one tried to go through they called me to see if it was me (it wasn't) and then denied the purchase and sent me a whole new card. They were getting close to $100 in gas.   

 

They should remove it. Just keep asking for their supervisor until they're sick of you.

I have always taken advantage of the alerts.  What was odd on Synchrony's part is they should have known before me of these suspicous charges.  You don't run 8 transactions through Walmart in AZ, in less than 8 hrs. and going over limit.  That 8th transaction happened after we called and said close this acct. down now.  They did. 2 days later, they allowed that 8th transaction to go through and it was backdated to Oct. 8th.  So 8 transactions in less than 8 hrs. Still smh at that one.  That 8th transaction that went through after the acct. was suspended IS one of the 3 we are still dealing with.  We even called Cap1 before the transition finalized and warned them they were inheriting a sloppy fraud case.

Wow. 

 

Seems like Cap1 is going to lose a customer. Why is it so hit or miss with this company? I just don't get it.
