    Credit card fraud used online...any advice? 22nd Oct 11 at 7:08 PM
    My bank has just rang asking if I have just bought 880 worth of chavvy jewellery online!
    It would seem my card has been used fraudulently. In total they have used it to top up a mobile at o2, a few 192 transactions, 300 Travelodge and 880 of bling!
    Luckily the CC company (asda/santander) rang and are now investigating.

    I use avg for years, but have just bought a new laptop a few months ago so have updated that to the paid version of avg.
    We also use something called sandboxie, that was recommended to us when surfing.

    I always check if websites I use are https.

    I shred everything with my name/address/details on.

    I never let my card leave my sight in shops.

    We have changed passwords for online banking and that cc has now been suspended

    I just cannot for the life of me figure out where they got my info from, is there any way I can find out?
    Martin Lewis Rocks!
