About a week ago, I received an alert from my bank that a charge had been made using my credit card without the card being present. It was for $199.00 and made by Asurion Wireless with a listed phone number of 866-667-2535.
I called the bank, and the rep cancelled my credit card and ordered a replacement. The only question I was asked was whether I might have made a cell phone insurance claim. I had not. This made me wonder if the charges were made by another party, perhaps someone who was trying to defraud both me and Asurion Wireless.
I have rarely if ever used this particular credit card for online payments.
I wonder if this might have something to do with the December 2013 security breach at Target. I did use this particular card once there during that time.
Reason of review: credit card fraud.
