Another day, another fraudulent credit card bill to clear up.

Somebody in Montclair, CA made four purchases using my actual physical credit card (a fake), one I didn't remember I had, for a total of $803. It was a store card I probably opened at the mall one day to get a discount.

A phone call cleared it up on my end, I won't be charged. Interestingly, he said it's good that they had created a card with the account number; otherwise it would mean they had some other ID info like SSN etc. Once that card number was frozen, it was useless.

He said they do sometimes trace purchases back to a person. I'll bet it's a low percentage.

1. someone is applying for cards

using my name, birthdate and SSN. Fortunately the address they are using is 30 years old. Trying to even get a fraud alert on the three credit companies has been horrible. One thinks we want to hear their ads SEVEN times in a row before talking to someone. Another had phone support in a foreign country and I could not understand what he was saying.

We need Elizabeth Warren in a position to help us with this mess.
