Yesterday I received a voicemail from the fraud department of a certain "premium" brand credit card that I use.
Curious I first Googled the number to make sure it was legit and then dialed it. After validating my info, I was informed that someone tried using my CC# but I had the actual plastic card!
Apparently whomever this thief is, he/she tried to put about $1400 or so on it at a Target store in the Bronx. The charge did not go through but it made me wonder - How did they get my number? Who was this criminal? And what kind of idiot tries to buy $1400 worth of goods w/o having the actual card in their possession? Did they just roll up to the cashier with a piece of paper and the cc# on it? So shady.
