Amex will allow a chanrge that went through before to go through again. They have a feature which I find neat, you can BLOCK certain merchants if you want.
whare can i find that feature to block certain merchants?
Do u have any different idea for a signature?

Yiddish local businesses can hire employees of questionable character.

Received this email earlier today
Quote
Dear Customer,

We posted a new notice or letter to your "Statements & Documents" on chase.com.

Please verify information for your business card account

We encourage you to read the entire letter, because it contains specific
information about your account.
To read it, sign in to chase.com or your Chase Mobile app.
To see or adjust your delivery settings, sign into chase.com.

Sincerely,
Digital Customer Care
Letters and notices sent may be from subsidiaries and/or affiliates of JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A.
It said on bottom that it was intended for *****@.com which is my correct email.
When I logged into my account there were no notifications or letters of any kind. I called Chase twice and they said they have nothing on their end, and that I should forward it to the fraud department.

Did I just get phished (though, the URL looks accurate ) or is this possibly the beginning of a Chase FR?

Yes one. But, it is a personal account, and the email clearly says business card account ...

~$,2000 in pending fraudulent charges on one of my cards. Issuer wonít bother investigating and this cr@p will keep happening. Meanwhile any companies that donít flag these transactions as fraud end up footing the bill for goods/services provided.

- Multiple Walmart.com charges adding up to like $300, they took down a report but they donít care.
- A single vipoutlet.com (Walmart subsidiary) order for $1600, they hung up on me twice...
- Some random water filter manufacturer based in California, several charges totaling ~$150.
- Netflix found the account ($20 charge, whatever that is) and cancelled it, wouldnít give any info.
- Dropbox $1 hold, they have a tool to look up charges but you need the transaction ID from the cleared charge.

I've seen merged emails/letters where names get mismatched, hard to know for sure.

Maybe you have a neightbor/relative named Shmuel at the same address and some lines got crossed?

Someone opened an Ikea card in my name, i got an alert from Chase credit monitor.

I called Comenity Bank, and reported it. the charge was about $4k

So someone has my info, which is not too hard i guess with all the breaches, created some fake ID to go along with it.

Anything else i should do? i see some suggest reporting on www.identifytheft.gov

Keep your credit permanently frozen and only unfreeze when you need to apply for something.

Also consider putting a fraud alert on your credit file, though it could work against you when applying, where youíll have to just through extra hoops to verify your identity when applying for credit.

Good idea, I think I'll start with the freeze and unfreeze when needed, and eventually hope they leave me alone. The fraud alert would make it that I cant get instant approvals.
