I had someone try to do an online purchase from Nordstrom for almost $900, and Bank of America denied it. They then contacted me, and asked if I had authorized it, as it was a suspicious purchase. I clicked on No, and then contacted the fraud department. I thank the gentleman for B of A declining it. So now I have to notify any company that has an auto debit on that card.
That made me extra careful about what comes in from text messages. This one arrived today, and I don’t remember going in for a competition, and there is nothing on my WalMart account to say that I have won anything.
You can still have your credit card on you, and somehow these scam artists manage to either get the card number, or into your account. I immediately changed my password.
