Then an auto payment notice indicated having problems with my credit card on file. What?
I called the credit card company, the one I’ve used for decades. I had assumed that since I had made some online holiday purchases, they thought they had noticed “unusual activity” and had stopped the card from working.
Well, indeed! They had noticed unusual activity: a $1,500 purchase in London. I’m not heading to London until January; so, it wasn’t me!
I’ve been violated! Someone stole my credit card number. I hope they catch him/her!
Fortunately my credit union (Yes, I’ve avoided the huge corporate banks for years!) declined that payment and locked the card. Now I have to wait for my new card. What a time of year to have this problem!
