I got a call just like this from Discover this last December. I had purchased almost all of my Christmas presents during a short period of time using this one card, and it triggered their warning system. I asked them about it, and they told me that they monitor each cardmember's buying habits, and if there is a rapid deviation away from normal, they call and find out if the purchases are legitimate.
