Since most of us have more than just one “points” card I thought I would give you all a heads up to log in DIRECTLY to each of your cards’ secure site as I just got an alert when checking in with Capital One that:

“Either a major retailer or their card clearing house has been comprised and a large amount of cards have been compromised as well”

There was a ZERO dollar charge to AT&T on mine as well as an Ebay and a hotel in Disneyland! You may or may not hear about this on the news depending on the volume of cards that were in the end compromised or just what retailer or clearing house that was involved. Either way, why not make sure all your charges (not just Capital One cards) over the past few weeks are as they should be!

Also, you still have time enter for the drawing, until NOON EST tomorrow, for the HP Laptop Backpack in this morning’s post! – Rene

  1. My Chase Sapphire was compromised, and there were three sub $5 card-not-present charges, two from hotels/inns and one from Home Depot all in states which I haven’t been this year.

    • @ Carl – Thank you VERY MUCH for taking the time to comment. BTW, when you do go to destroy your CHASE SAPPHIRE card, I have some advice for you HERE on a post from before! – Rene

  2. You know. I saw a $1.00 google wallet charge on my amex, but didn’t think anything of it. Now I’ll call. Thanks!

  3. FWIW, none of my accounts have an weird transactions. Checked all my Chase and Am Ex accounts. Thanks for the heads up!

  4. Thanks for the reminder. I think sometimes it’s easy to forget when you’ve got so many cards with things going on. We found a monthly recurring charge from “ProActive Solutions” for some of that skin cleanser (it got us quite a bit of UR points on our Chase Sapphire Preferred initially, but we’re not using it and no further shipments arrived). Chase was able to reverse these, and told me that they are able to block specified merchant from charging us again.

  5. Thanks for the heads up. I found a $1 charge on my Ink Bold from Google as well. I’m going to call.

  6. I had a $300+ Hyatt purchase on my sapphire preferred card last week.

  7. My husband and I had two cards compromised this last week – mine was the Chase Ink Bold, and my husband’s was the Chase Sapphire. In both instances, Chase called me immediately after to ask me if I had made the charges — very impressed with their fraud dept! I was slightly frustrated when we got two calls a day apart, but at least it’s resolved. I’ve been watching our other accounts like a hawk. Now I just have to figure out how to destroy this Chase Sapphire card! We don’t have tin snips 🙁
