Default I guess go big or go home

I received a text, an email and multiple calls from Chase today about the possibility of a fraudulent charge on my credit card .

Someone tried to hit it on a charge for $9286.57.

I guess if you are going to commit fraud, you might as well buy something nice

Have no idea, not even sure the last time that I even used the card. I had to hunt around to find it.

Some phuck bag got mine and ran up a $2000+ tab. He/she shipped the items to me though somehow. Box of shoes and clothes showed up at my office yesterday. All wrong sizes, lol.

They did that in order to make sure the card was good. They generally hit it for a much higher amount shortly after. My card was compromised for almost 100.00 in Itunes purchases. I havent owned an apple product in years

I had a small charge in Dubai and then a $10,000+ room charge shortly after. Someone must have had a heck of a night!

A lot of them will go to Wal Mart and buy gift cards. Once he gift card is purchased they basically have cash. Had that happen on one card a few years ago. Most of it over around West Point.

Had a waitress steal mine once and rack up $500 in 2 hours at stores around the area. I tracked down all the information and presented it to the detective when he came to my office. They arrested her within the week, but she only got probation and had to pay restitution.

Restitution to the store owners or who? You shouldn’t have been charged by cc company once it was determined to be fraud right? My understanding is that credit card fraud is so rampant most departments will barely investigate it anymore. Don’t know if that is true though.

A coworker lost his company card one day and realized it within an hour or so and notified the company. The card had already been found by some kid at Reinhardt college and he had already ordered a new Apple laptop and desktop. He got busted

It was my debit card. My bank reimbursed the funds into my account the day I filed the claims. She paid to the money to the courts and they handled it from there.
