I just got off the phone with my credit card company’s fraud department. Someone had used my card to buy things…BUT- customer service was great and all is just fine.
It reminds me of just how important it is to protect your identity online… I have an online business and do the majority of my transactions over the internet. It is extremely safe and trustworthy, but people can be crafty. It may seem obvious, but it is the little things- like closing your browser after viewing sensitive information, and not saving your payment details after a purchase.
Now, to the person who decided to buy themselves a Christmas present with my money- SHAME ON YOU! Yours will come- I’m a big believer in the karma train. Good luck avoiding that one.
Cheers and Happy 2011 to all!
