Oh, I kept meaning to add this but I forgot.

Here is the scary part: they new almost my complete name AND my home phone number in addition to the credit card number. IF my card was skimmed, they would only have the CC info.

I wouldn't particularly worry too much about this. Everything is on the internet these days. Your name, address, phone number...everything. There are websites that will search the internet for sites that contain your information. If you request these sites to remove your name and personal info they will. But the problem is that there are so many sites with personal info on this. And then, of course, there's social media sites where all too often the victim has put their own personal info on sites for whole world to see. Check the privacy settings for any social media site you belong to and be mindful of what you post.
