    Default My credit card has been hacked

    I have a Visa card with a $300 limit that I use for online purchases. I got a call today from NAB fraud section to say they had noticed some "out of character" transaction and it turns out over $200 had been taken out in payments $8 to $90 fraudulently . Lucky the bank found it, because I may have missed it, which is embarrassing as a qualified accountant. The card has to be cancelled and I have to fill in forms to get the money back. I'm so glad I have this limited card for online use, but it's still a bit upsetting. The NAB lady said they most probably generate random numbers

    The same happened with my sister and it took about 6 weeks to get the money back. It's still a pain having to do the paperwork though. Good luck and sorry to hear about the leeches who rorted your hard earned $$$

    This happened to me just 2 weeks ago, though thankfully the people got declined but the bank still called me and still froze my account until I got a new card. I'm still waiting for the PIN for the new card though. I got the new card on monday and still waiting for the PIN. I can use the credit feature in the meantime (it's a debit card) but I'd still like to know my new PIN!!

    It sucks but thankfully the banks know what to look for and are onto it if need be.
