Just a quick note for everyone to take a minute and check out their credit card statements (especially Mastercard) for really suspicious but small charges from strange stores in foreign countries. You might be especially vulnerable if your Mastercard doubles up as a Debit Card and/or an ATM card (since you have opened more than one way of accessing funds through your card number).
I know that I have not used the card in question in over two years and have not used it online for years. I saw a lone charge on it this month for $12.38 from England (an import export company) which caught me off gaurd. I have since cancelled my card, removed online access to the account and frozen all transactions.
Better safe than sorry. We might see more of these fraudulent transactions once the stolen/lost lists make their rounds around the world.
PS: I would like to hear your story. If you check your account due to this post and find something unusual, please do me (and others) a favor and come back to leave a comment. It might remind others to do the same.
