    to buy a train ticket. The fuckers. Now I have to get a new card and go through the hassle of remembering which bills are automatically tied to it.

    Outsourcing strikes again.

    Someone used one of mine online, I had to get a new credit card number

    I do not have any credit cards tied to any automatic payments.Nor do I use automatic debit payments for bills of any kind. computers are not infallible

    Poor Indians, they must have been very upset when they realized they stole a card with tiny limit!

    "I don't know Ackmed, the card was declined for a $0.25 train ticket!"

    This is actually the second time this has happened to me in the past two years. Somebody must be sloppy about screening their employees over there.

    Just curious if you have a Dell computer? I know they do their financing there.

    If I were you I would put an identity theft alert on my credit report! Basically you can do everything Life Lock does, but for free! PM if you need addition info!

    Are you 100% sure that you have not been a India recently?

    Think hard...sometimes international trips are easy to forget.
