This is a story about paying a steep price for a pair of cheap socks.
One Tuesday morning as I was having my coffee and toast before kicking off the work day I got a text from my credit card company alerting me to a suspected fraud charge. Of course I was alarmed and started looking into it right away.nbsp.
I messaged my husband Are you getting any fraud charge alerts Nope just me.nbsp.
Soon after I received an email order confirmation then another and another for electronic goods I didnt purchase. The email receipt showed my home billing address with a different shipping address which happened to be the location of a hotel in my city. I found it odd and scary that someone local had my credit card number matched to my actual name home address and email address. I imagined them holed up in a hotel room opening boxes of stolen goods and reselling them on Craigslist. But wouldnt the thief realize I and other victims would get these email messagesnbsp.
