Yep, happened to me, too. Some jerk used my number to buy (among other thinks) an expensive boxed set of country music... now if the credit card computers were REALLY smart, they would've known that I NEVER listen to country music. :D

LOL! Actually, that's not really that far-fetched. I remember years ago when my wife and I went to Atlantic City, I used my card to pay for dinner, and when I got home, Citibank called me to verify that I did indeed make that purchase, as it seemed "unusual" based on my charging history.

I was delighted that they questioned this, and I made sure to let them know how pleased I was that they were looking out for my interests (as well as theirs).
