Ive been ebaying recently and on amazon. Checked my bank transactions and a charge appeared from experian credit. I have not requested any credit reports lately. I called experian and they told me that this person had used the card to request some information. I dont give my card to anyone else but ppl are so smart these days who knows. The charge was $1. However I know thats usually to make sure the card worked. Who knows how much it really costs. The credit agency was helpful in locating who did it and placing a "red flag" or whatnot on his account. I did check the sellers and nothing stood out to me.
I cancelled my card, but now I have 2 orders from Joann's online pending (ordered 2/26/12). I called the bank and they said it could go either way (card invalid or approve the charges).I should prob get one of those prepaid visas to do my online shopping.
