Call me a victim.
I've had my Discover account for over a decade.
I've shopped with it online since the day I got it.
Discover has called me on several occasions to verify charges weren't fraudulent and until this weekend they never were.
We got a call from them on Saturday night asking if we had tried to make a purchase at a Target in South Carolina. The Other Half told them, uh no, and promptly handed me the phone since I deal with all matters financial.
The nice person on the phone was all calm about it as she informed me that the account has been closed and new account was started. Our new cards would go out overnight on Monday for delivery on Tuesday morning.
That's all fine except for the fact that I HAVE REGISTERED THAT ACCOUNT DAMN NEAR EVERYWHERE I SHOP ON THE INTERNET AND EVEN SOME AUTOPAY ACCOUNTS. Sigh. I even had that number memorized so I didn't even have to break a sweat when spending The Other Half's hard earned money.
I received the new cards as promised this morning, activated them, and even set the new account up in Quicken. All is working well but the hardest part is still ahead of me: changing all the places I used that card. I have autopay set up all over the place and my inbox will be filling up with "your card was denied" emails for weeks to come.
