Someone has hacked into my credit card and used it!
It turns out this has been going on since February 23rd and my credit card company only alerted me yesterday, when something called Instacarts, decided to try and get $1500.00 for the THIRD time. Luckily they had failed the first two times, but they were "lucky" the third time. UberEats also got through a couple of times. A few other things tried to get through but didn't.
All these charges are from companies I have never ever used or even know about, and I am sure the credit card company knows that. I may have to sign an affidavit to say none of these are my charges the guy said as the $1500.00 one is quite large. He told me not to worry about it,; but how can you not worry about it, when this is something that has never happened to me before? I don't want to be stuck paying these charges.
Of course they cancelled my card, which is a good thing, but a pain in the butt, as I now have to call various companies that I charge things too on a monthly basis to change my credit card number, when my new one arrives, in 7 to 10 business days!!! Meanwhile I am on a credit card "diet" which sucks but won't kill me, I guess😉
By the way, still have no idea how "they" got my credit card number.....
Have you had this happen to you?
