Credit Card Fraud – MyLife *Reunion-Search 888-7041900

We had a strange charge go through one of our credit cards:


Aug 09, 2010 MYLIFE *REUNION-SEARCH 888-704190  75.26

No one in our family is looking for folks to “reunion” with.

The credit card company’s loss/fraud folks had called about this particular transaction as well as a few other transactions that were attempted against the card.

Needless to say, the card is now cancelled and a new one is on its way.

This card was actually one of the last cards in our possession that had its number longer than two to three years.

Because of issues with fraud attempts against our cards in the past, we tend to call in and ask to have the card number changed or if the credit card company does not like to do that, then have it cancelled outright and reissued once every 12 to 18 months.

By rotating the CC numbers, we help to mitigate our exposure to the folks that trade in CC numbers.
