the card was used intermittently, and only for fuel, no other purchases. there are many fuel stops that only take Visa/Mastercard, plan accordingly.
Not sure I understand - was there actual fraud or did Visa just think there was fraud because it was used away from your home/normal use?

If it was actual fraud - any thoughts on prevention?
