I just received a phone call from one of our credit card companies.
They questioned 3 charges that were made on our account yesterday.
The 3 transaction have been removed, they have cancelled the card and will overnight new ones.
I will be pain to change the CC account numbers on the automatic withdrawals etc.
There has to be a special corner in the extremely hot place (and I don't mean Texas) for jerks that try to seal.
Been down that road too many times as well! Usually, once they figure out your card number they test it by making a couple small charges, like less than five bucks. Then, if it takes they go bananas. Thankfully, my bank has caught these suspect charges before they turned big and called me to let me know they were cancelling my card.

I would sooner live in Texas than some of those cities up North where people live almost on top of their neighbors.
I have a back pasture with a few cows, Jack rabbits, cotton tail rabbits and some unwanted wild hogs.
I have made a few tours in the Northeast part of the US and could not tell when we were leaving one city and entering the next. At lease in South central Texas, we can do some nice back road tours and stay out of all that city traffic.

I’ve made a few posts on this forum, but don”t seem to have the knack for it, but you might find this one interesting. Last Sunday morning, when most people are in church, some scumbag down in Alabama stopped at a Quick Stop and used my credit card to buy a pack of cigarettes ($5.68). Just the week before my daughter-in-law had set me up with an app that allows me to turn my credit card on and off using my iPad. The card was turned of when the dirtbag tried to use it and the folks that watch for this sort of thing called me. The credit card has been cancelled and we are expecting a new one in the mail this afternoon. I’m betting that the dirtbag paid cash for his cigarettes, got back in his car, pulled out the next BS card and headed for the next Quick Stop, but at least he didn’t hit my card for $1,800 like someone in New Jersey did 3 or 4 years ago did. It was because of that I went for the app. My computer skills suck, but this one seems like a great idea.
