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.
Got my new card in the mail on the first day of Yom Tov, I checked my account online this morning before I called in to activate the new card and there was already 2 fraudulent charges on the account. They cancelled the card again and are sending me another new one.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Hmm, sounds like a pattern.

So TigerDirect sells GC's?
I just found a new supply of forks!

Opened a new discover checking account for wife. Debit card and pin both never arrived in mail. Several days later account was cleared out with local swipes in Brooklyn.  NY taxis, stores etc. $1025.

Discover reimbursed in full no prob. Then had two more fraudulent charges after replacement card did arrive in mail.

And the story goes on: I got the new card today and after opening it was surprised to see that Citi sent me another one of the same card (that they just cancelled).
I called and explained the story to the account rep, she looked into it and said it looks like the card was processed to be shipped out before the old card number was cancelled, so I got a duplicate card. Then she went ahead and processed the new card to be shipped to me.

I then brought up that I'm paying a high annual fee for this card to be earning miles with it, and for a week already I haven't been able to earn any miles and had to use other credit cards. She offered me 1,000 bonus AA miles, I countered with 5,000 and she said that's a good number as that's the highest she could offer.

We'll see what happens when the new card comes via FedEx. If there are any more issues I'm gonna ask them to just cancel the card and refund my annual fee.

What did they do did they change your billing address so it should match the shipping address?
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

logged in today to find that some of the provisional credits were reversed. SMd asking why and they responded:

Very annoyed!!
Have to wait for the letters to arrive to see what they say.

... Have a feeling I may soon be closing DWs Discover checking account as well as mine.

My chase credit card has been the target 3 times since January, luckily chase caught it within seconds and sent me a text every time they suspected fraud. I'm starting to worry about the increase of CC theft! Mind you I was in possession of my CC the entire time, someone managed to duplicate it without ever physically having the card.

They gave you a new number each time?

Yep this happens all the time. Members of my family have had their cc's charged in stores all over the world, from Vancouver to Cairo (2 I remember off the top of my head) all while having the physical cc's with them.

Now that you bring it up, the only time I had fraud was a swipe in a men's underwear store in Australia on my CSP
