There were 4 attempted charges for Iphones... the card only had a 700 limit, so only one was allowed to go through.
All 4 charges were at Walmarts in the Cincinatti metro area..... I dont know a single soul who lives in Cincinatti
Our valley has been rife with fraud for the last two months.
I had only used my debit card once in a months time at a grocery store, and it got hacked.
My credit union contacted me, as 6 days later someone tried to charge $200 at a Lowe's store back east. The fraud department didn't let the transaction go through, thankfully.
I canceled the card and got a new one.
It turns out that a local distributor to grocery stores around our area is where the card information, including pin numbers, were stolen.
I have a separate account for using online. The bank is not to honor any purchase that does not have sufficient funds to cover it, so I basically call the bank and only transfer enough money from my regular account to cover my purchase. I will never run my card as 'debit' again. If the service won't let me run it as credit, they'll have to accept a check or lose my business.

If you access it from wifi, just about any 101 level hacker can get all of your information.
Really? How so?
