When the credit card company suspected that my card had been skimmed by a waiter in Los Angeles they just cancelled the card. I had no idea that my card was void until the next time I tried to use it.
When I called the company to straighten it out I had to speak to three different individuals to get in touch with someone whose English was understandable. I finally got in contact with the security and fraud department and was informed that a new card would be sent to me in a week. No they could not send it to my hotel in Los Angeles and no they cold not expedite even in case of emergencies. I told them to cancel the account. Fortunately I had my debit card and a back up credit card.
I won't mention the name of the company but it rhymes with hitty tank.

It has happened to me twice in the last two years, and happened on Mrs B's card last year. So that's 3 times between the two of us in the last 2 years. Thankfully they had a real person call me, so I didn't have to worry about being scammed. It's a hassle to have to reset some accounts, like my ISP account, with my new card, but I'm glad the banks are on it.
One thing I wondered...one of the bogus charges was for an airline ticket from TX to NY, and they even gave me the guy's name. So...if they have the guy's name...why don't they arrest him and put him away????

Problem solved with a RFID blocking wallet for each of us.
