If you guys use check cards (debit cards), PLEASE make sure you check your account online every few days.
This weekend I found out someone had gotten ahold of my number and somehow (who knows how) made a new card... and began a shopping spree! Keep in mind my card NEVER LEFT MY POSSESSION!!!!
My bank has been very helpful and is (supposedly) crediting the money back to my account within 48 hours, still it's a huge hassle.
Since check cards tap directly into your checking account, the money evaporates RIGHT AWAY. Major pain.
I have, of course, no clue who could have done this. Up until yesterday, I used my check card for everything (except online purchases).
Not anymore, though!
