Early this morning, Jase got a call from one of our credit card companies telling us that last night someone tried to use my credit card to buy £1200 worth of computer equipment.
Unfortunately, it wasn't us!
Fortunately, they blocked the transaction until they could verify it with us. I am pretty upset as it means that somewhere along the way, someone has "skimmed" my card details. Now I am always really careful about cash machines (and very rarely use that card in a cash machine anyway) so it must have been at a restaurant or petrol station.
I suspect it was when we were abroad in Barcelona because I don't think I've used that card at all since we got back from our holiday in June.
I suppose I'm lucky because it's the first time it's actually happened to me and because my credit card company were on the ball and didn't let the transaction go through. I will be keeping an even closer eye on my credit card transactions in the future though!
