Credit Card Fraud

I was told this morning that a number of the park's residents had their credit card numbers stolen so I went online to check mine and sure enough my card number was being used in Australia! Fortunately, most of the major purchases had been declined and the credit card company will credit my account for the minor ones. The old card has been cancelled and a new one issued.

No one knows how the card numbers were stolen but when I was told by the card company that an actual card with my number on it was being used in Australia, it would appear to be a fairly sophisticated operation.
