    I've gone 12 years and NEVER had a credit card stolen. I email & fax our card info to suppliers over 100 times every month and have never had any problems whatsoever.

    Last month, my card number was stolen and used over 1000 miles away at a Walmart. Turns out, a local restaurant has a thief on the books.... they have been stealing card numbers and selling them online.

    To those of you who are involved in this, know that some of us take it very seriously. I have already begun my investigation into this and I am 100% certain that the guy behind this will end up in prison because of my research.

    Next time you steal from someone, keep in mind it might just be someone who knows more than you do. I HATE a thief.... if you steal from me, you're causing physical harm to my kids and I take that VERY seriously.

    It was used in-store at a Walmart? I think retailers need to require a physical card to prevent things like this. At my work, we don't accept payment without an actual card. If for some reason we have to type the card number in manually (as I assume they had to do at the Walmart), we have to imprint a copy of the card to prove the person had physical possession of it and all the information was correct, etc.

    Same thing happened to me recently, though my bank was able to stop them before they even made a single transaction.

    They tried to spend $16,000 on a TV, camera, computer and some other electrical, all state of the art stuff too. As soon as they put the transaction through, my bank rang, asked if I was in another country spending this amount on X Y and Z, I said nope and the card was canceled on the spot. I can only image what happened to the peopel trying to use it. Probably arrested, the scum bags. I hope the same happens to the people that stole yours.

    They can make a new strip with your card info on a fake card and swipe it.

    It was used physically... My guess is that the number was used to dupe a new card, which was then used at Walmart.

    75INZ - Nothing was done to the perps, im sure. I had to file my own police reports both here, and in the town 1000 miles away. Local LEO really doesn't care. Even though this is a federal crime, most could care less.

    I don't know if it's all over everywhere now, but gas stations in my area require you to input the zipcode associated with the CC now. Helps a little bit at least :)

    Also I've only had my CC # stolen once. By the Israeli Church Community of Austin Texas or something. Now I'm sure all my activity is being watched by the US government :D

    JK I'm not racist!

    I totally support you. Get them and make them pay for their crimes.
    But don't feel too angry or too upset about this matter. :)

    I assume the card was used online? if it was used at a physical location they'd need your pin which means a camera would have needed to be positioned to see the pin.

    I had a friend whose card was used tp hire a limo in hong kong lol,the bank phoned up first so it went no further.
    He had just come back from a holiday in thailand!

    Credit cards in the US do not have a pin, only ATM/debit cards.

    Credit cards can be copied with the proper information which can be intercepted with unsecure connection.

    OP, put into balance how much have you lost and how much you will loose wile you investigate.

    Some events doesn't require your attention.

    I have been through a lot worst than that and i didn't lift a single finger over it. I just got through it and happy about then i'm confident in karma and life event which makes pay those very bad people.
