Hi marketing07, One of the people from the company that they made the charges to told me the name of these people and I have never heard of them before in my life. I am glad that's all behind me though I will know what to do next time so that this will never happen again.

Never. I don't put myself in those situations. I wouldn't let anyone use my card ever. And I don't leave my card, or information around for anyone to find. If my card or something was missing I would call the card company, or bank and report it immediately, and have it cut off right away.

Hi redhotpogo, Thanks for your response I purchase things online from time to time and some how the website was not secure because someone got access to my private information. I purchased something online just like one would go to a store and purchase something and someone hacked my private information online they DID NOT take my card and I NEVER EVER leave my card anywhere. My husband and I still have our bank cards in our possession, someone hacked our information from what was supposed to be a secure website where you make purchases that's how they were able to make the charges. I did not give this person anything I would never do something that crazy. I have learned from this experience though, I will never purchase anything online with my credit card ever again. I did contact my bank right away and I now have a new account and I am getting a new card within the next couple weeks, so I feel better now :)
