OH NO! Fraudulent Charges on My Charge Card

Early this morning I received a call from Discover Card Services asking for me to contact them regarding some charges they believed to be fraudulent.  When I called, there were several charges over the week or so that were not my charges.  Discover Card was great about it.  They said I was not responsible for the charges and immediately closed my account and offered to expedite the shipment of new cards to me.  When I was talking to the rep, I commented that I guess this meant I had to learn a number for my new cards.  He was surprised that I knew my credit card number.  I explained that I had probably had the card for 20 years.  He looked it up and said, "Yes, you opened it up in 1989 and I know that is 22 years because that was the year I was born."  Thanks for making me feel old, buddy!

Anyway, I am very pleased that Discover caught this and contacted me, and most pleased that there was no hassle for me to say certain charges were not mine.  Thanks, Discover Card!

That is awesome that they contacted you about it. That happened our our debit card and luckily they didn't let the charges go through.
