On my way to work this morning, some 800 number called me (I pulled over on my bike to take the call because I am opposed to Distracted Cycling *prim*) and said that--get this--a 99-cent iTunes charge had triggered the fraud alert on my debit card account.

Ninety-nine cents.

I don't use iTunes, and they said that iTunes is a prime testing-ground for card-number theft. So they called me and told me to have my debit card shut down.

Of course, I duly did this, and no financial harm was done--not even the $0.99. So yay for that. And because it takes them two weeks to issue a new card, I was given a weird temporary card with no numbers on it. This will work in ATMs and at card-swipes like the grocery store checkout.

But it just dawned on me: no internet shopping for two whole weeks. Ack!

Thanks for letting me know about this. It's flipping worrrying because who the hell notice such a small amount disappearing?
