After all the years I’ve been using and buying stuff off the Internet, I got hit by credit card fraud for the first time today.
Got a call from a company verifying part of my card details, fine I thought and left it at that. Then started thinking, hadn’t ordered anything that hadn’t been processed in the last few days.
So I called them back and asked a bit more about who the company was and a bit more about the order concerned. Unfortunately I couldn’t hear the name of the company – some underwear place according to the nice lady on the phone. As it transpired, someone had my card details, home address and mobile number and had ordered £180 of rollneck T-Shirts. All to be sent to an address in North East London.
Needless to say that has now been cancelled, as has my credit card (new one on the way). I’m now racking my brains to think where the details came from. I can only guess its from some website somewhere, but goodness knows.
