    Checked my C.C statement on line this morning to find that some bugger has spent £902 in Tesco Express. on monday. I have been onto my bank and stopped my card and they did tell me that I will get the money back. But, I will have to pay the extra for the moment as the payment date is soon. I did pay my motorbike insurance on monday on line, coincidence, and have been on to them as the payment hasn't yet gone through. It is just a pain.:smile:

    This happened to me, someone used my Sky credit card to buy 1500 quids worth of drugs from an American drug store. I got every penny back and did not have to pay any late fees or interim payments whilst the CC company dealt with it......so Hats off to Sky.

    I hope you get a satisfactory response mate

    Cheers, I with the Nationwide and when I spoke to them earlier the man on the phone was very helpful and reassured me that I should get the payment put back into my account within a week or so.

    Who with, out of interest? I paid mine on Saturday and although I haven't spotted anything yet, it'd be nice to know if I need extra vigilance

    Hold on...did they nick your PIN, too?
    I thought you needed to enter your PIN everywhere these days. Right?

    No, you only need the details from your card if ordering online or over the phone.

    Daft, isn't it?

    In the OP, it says the money was spent in Tesco.

    I doubt it. How can you spend £902 in Tesco Express?

    Anyway, you can still sign for credit cards. It's just that the store is responsible if it's not a legitimate transaction.

    Champagne, Wine, Electricals possibly (The Tesco in Bishopsgate is called an Express but is still quite big and does sell a small selection of electricals), tobacco, other 'luxury' products, cashback etc.
