Merry Christmas to me.

.

No, I didn’t buy myself a gift, but it seems someone did.

It may be the most magical time of year, but it’s also the most popular time for criminals to hack your credit card.

Thankfully my bank was right on top of it, cancelling the card and refunding the bogus charges. The amounts were low but that’s how they start, hoping you won’t notice. Ironically it was the fact they made multiple low purchases at the same place for the same amount that tripped an alarm. Weirder still? My last legitimate charge was $18.96.

Be careful out there. Being without my debit/Mastercard for a week until the new one arrives is a pain in the *ss this time of year.
