Fraudulant Activity

Posted on Mon, Sep 27, 2010 at 1:48 PM

I get a call from my bank: Hello Mr. X, this is so and so from your bank. I am calling because your bank account has been compromised and we have limited your access. Are you able to get to a bank machine to change your pin within the next two hours...

First off, what the hell is the point of chip cards anyway - especially if you can use them at the old machines without chip readers? More places swipe my debit card then use the chip. Why bother?

Second, why can't you tell me where my card was skimmed - maybe I would like to um... not use that machine anymore? Stop using a business who takes part / allows others to take part in such crime? Why is it such a big secret - if you know this happened somewhere, then tell me where - I deserve to know where I was victimized.

God, I am sick of my card being skimmed and the "meh" attitude of the bank... —Skimmed thrice...
