I agree with Itsgoingup! These are examples of failures of the system. We already live overseas and it is NOT unusual to randomly book flights to yet other foreign countries and other unusual things.

I am hearing impaired so returning a "simple" phone call to fix their error is a nightmare. My husband ends up spending over half an hour on the phone fixing these problems.
I often travel alone and if I visit a city and my card is rejected at a hotel I don't want to be stuck on the streets in some strange city.

These are not security measures or a service to me. They are harassment.

And seriously, CC Co., I know it may be shocking but I do buy iTunes apps for only $.99. and I do fairly regularly. You really, really, REALLY do not need to put a fraud alert on my CC for an $.99 App I've purchased!
