Love my bank’s fraud protection

I got a text message from my bank, saying there was an odd charge to my credit card, and did I recognize it.

I looked, then searched, and nope, no clue, so I texted back NO.

Got a phone call from the bank, three step verification, so it was legit.  It seems that the unknown charge was a ‘feeler’ to see if the account was active, because almost immediately afterward, there was a $1000+ charge on my card for a hotel in Paris, France!

Since I’m nowhere near Paris, that was squashed/denied, my current card canceled (just got through shredding it, too, just to be safe), and a new one will be issued.

And to the fuqwit that tried to commit fraud, I hope they catch your sorry ass.
