My credit card info was stolen.

My husband just discovered that this morning. They got 3 transactions for about $350. In the grand scheme of things, not a big deal since I am not responsible for the fraudulent charges. It was just a matter of a 5 minute phone call to report it and request a new card. Still, it is annoying.

The guy on the phone I had "credit fraud protection" so I didn't have to pay for the charges. I don't know if it was something special for my type of account or something they do for all credit card accounts these days. I've been with Capital One for over a decade.

@NJChicaa Then the culprit was someone at the gas company. I worked in ATM services for a financial institution and it's easy to gain that info from inside. Years ago my card was compromised and it only could have happened from within the card company itself.
yes of course it is very annoying, I think there is someone who has a credit card number scrapper so that if they know the code number then the credit card can be used by anyone. Immediately block the credit card and Report it to the bank and the police.
