They tried to take money from me 29 different occasions today alone.

I had just purchased a NS SL-r for total of 480 so they only managed to get 20 bucks out of the account.

And the only things I've use the card for in the past month were a speeding ticket and this board so its a little suspicous.

I bought the board from the boardroomshop.com. Not sure if anyone has any previous experience with them but be careful.


Now this is not an accusation or anything as I don't believe it was the retailer, but no less it was a concern which my bank had found before too long, and I felt the need to tell other people to be careful when dealing online.
I work in the service industry where we deal with alot of debit and credit transactions. You would be surprised that even at palces you dont expect would skim cards.

Usually when cards are skimmed, they dont use them til at least 6 months or more. That way the card user and banks would have a harder time to trace down when and where the cards numbers are swiped.
