Credit Card Fraud has hit us again. This time we were charged $17.96 (TEN TIMES IN ONE DAY) for something called EDC*EDIETS-SERVICE. (We had never heard of this company before this problem.)
We found the fraud quite by accident. Hubby just happened to check our statement online and found these ten charges made the day before and immediately called the card's fraud department.
I've googled and there is Nothing in regard to this company itself being the scammer. There are a few disgruntled customers, but no reports of actual fraud.
We've used this particular card only a handful of times and we're careful to never let the card out of our sight so as to avoid "skimmers". We shred receipts. We're somewhat careful using the card online. (The only SURE way online is to AVOID online purhases and payments.)
Our anti-virus program finds our computer clean.
So...did some previous purchase result in our card number being handed over to some crook? Or is it possible that some glitch in the system hit us? We may never know.
At any rate, the card is cancelled.
