Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Was waiting for a new credit card to be mailed to me.... got email from chase fraud department that my new card was used in various local fast food stores and cvs.... and was even used to withdraw money from a atm.... chase declined the charges.
I haven't even received this new card yet. Where would someone get a hold of my new credit card?  I even checked my security camera and no one opened up my mail box....
Any suggestions?

I told you I sent out the check!
The most serious charge he's facing is the delay or destruction of mail, it seems like he didn't actually open or do anything with it, he just left it laying around.

Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

From the mail?

Sounds like bluff to me. I've read reports on phone scams similar to that and I'd say what you do is go visit Chase and have them look into it. It may be alarming but don't fret just yet. Remain calm and investigate directly from the bank.

I have a feeling that it's one of these credit card phishing scams. There's a lot of complaints on it posted at Callercenter and I strongly suggest you read through the posts, too, just to get an idea how scammers perpetrate the scam. You can also get the known scammer phone numbers there and add them to your block list so just in case your phone number made it to their call list, they'd never have the chance to call you at all.

I periodically have unauthorized charges on my cards.  Once on an infrequently used card that was used at only 2 stores that month.  Each time I get a new card and the charges are dropped.  I usually try to figure out which store I used that stole the #.  But I've never been even close to sure.

Just got off the phone with Citibank.
Apparently someone tried making 40+ online purchases on my Executive card this morning. About half of them went through to pending, while the rest got declined.
Citi only flagged it as fraud when the guy made a $1900 purchase at BestBuy, the rest were all in the $200 range at Walmart and TigerDirect.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
