Debit Card Fraud

By

I will be filing a police report today.

On Monday my husband went to our bank, Wells Fargo to cash his check, like he always does. Mine automatically gets deposited by my employer. The teller proceeds to tell him that his account is overdrawn ($2,000.00)He was shocked! The teller asks him if he purchased airline tickets? He responds NO!

He was taken out of the line and spoke to another employee at wells fargo. They reviewed our account and noticed a charge for $1 at Napster and $1.00 at Priceline. My husband calls me. I’m at work, and I begin thinking where oh where did I used my ATM card, Safeway, the nail shop, online ATT, on the phone with Geico insurance while I was at the golf course. Oh no!!!! It’s not safe oh CRAP!

These charges are pending and so we wait and see if we have a fraud case or not.
Tuesday, Wednesday, I check my account online no charges. Today yes the Delta Airline charges are there. I call the WFB fraud line… They fax me a statement that I need to sign, stating I did not sign for these charges or give permission to any one else to use my card. I had to email the fax home to my husband to sign, he faxed it back to me from his work and then I faxed it to the WFB fraud department after I signed it. They also told me I need to file a police report.

Ok there happens to be one right next door to the office that I work in. But no, won’t take the report because I don’t live in the city. Ok… They did tell me what will happen once I file the report. They will contact the police department in the city of Connecticut where Delta airlines is located and give them the numbers off of my statement.

WFB will credit my account within 24hours. whew. My debit card was cancelled, our account is okay. Some same close it, some say its okay. When I spoke with the police office next door. She told me that this happened to her and she still uses her atm card. hmmm not sure what I’m going to do. But I used it all the time. I had it in my possession and cut it up.

Someone out there stole the numbers off my card and charged airline tickets with it. YOU will get caught! So ATM card holders and users beware.
