If it was actual fraud - any thoughts on prevention?
actual fraud, about $500 in a matter of hours. very similar to what happened in 2011. i'm not clear on how the card number is stolen and reused, other than knowing the first charge was from the same town where i first used the card.
could be an added card reader at the pump, the clerk in the quick mart, i have no idea. Visa picked up on it surprisingly fast.
