    Default Credit cards


    Last week I had a call from Discover card at 9:30 at night...wasn't too
    happy until the woman asked me if I had authorized charges for $975 on
    my card for nofear.com. I said no way...she stated that the fraud unit
    software picked up the charges as I do not use my card and wanted to
    verify the info. They cancelled my card and issued a new one. She
    explained that these fraud rings will simply put in a series of numbers
    until they get a hit and try to charge items. I keep my cards at home
    in special place and never carry it. They will probably not be able to
    identify the person/group but thankfully caught the item. It is a good
    idea to double check any statements you get.

    I find that Discover is very good for this. A year ago
    August/September my teenage son went through a major growth spurt and
    nothing fit him for school. I think we spent in one day about
    $400.00 between 3 - 5 stores. I had a message on my machine by the
    time I got home for the same reason. I don't use my card very often
    and then multiple purchases in one day was a red flag for them.
