    When I got an alert about suspicious activity on my credit card, I wasn’t sure what was happening – but I sure knew that I hadn’t tried to spend $400 on frozen yogurt, so something was up. Luckily I had set up measures within my bank account that helped me identify that there was an issue before it got out of hand…the situation could have turned out much, much worse if I hadn’t taken precautions!

    My story was when I was traveling after college:
    I had my credit card on me, and I used it to get cash out of the ATM,
    took the money and headed back to my hotel and apparently I dropped it on the way without noticing.

    Two hours later I get sms from my credit card company saying the “transaction was declined due to security issue”…
    I said hey, that’s great, I won’t be charged :)
    BUT, the guy who found it, went to the bank, pretended to be me, and tried to get money from the cahier.
    Luckily they kept protocol and declined to give him money without an some kind of an id.
    he tried to argue with them, that this is his credit card, but when security confronted him he just run away.
    The next day I got a call, went to the bank, got my card back, safe & sound with no harm done…
