I just had to cancel my card, and I thought the pattern was kind of weird.

I had been out of town for a few months so the fradulent activity was actually in March.

First there was a $25 dollar charge for Minecraft through Moneybookers that was credited the next day. The fraud department guy said this probably means Moneybookers suspected it was fraudulent and so just credited it back. He said a lot of stolen CC info is used through Moneybookers (some kind of third party payment site).

Then there was nothing for 2 weeks. Then there were charges from norton.com on two consecutive days. About $65 and $85. Then nothing after that.

I can't figure out why you would successfully use a stolen card so infrequently and also why they would only use it a couple of times. It was almost 2 months before I noticed.
