Well I beg to differ (not wanting to start anything here) but I have confirmed what happened with my card with an accounts manager at RBC. Obviously I want to get more answers and confirm my suspicions, he agreed that my account was trying to be access by someone and by someplace that I "very recently" visited.dealtacular wrote: ↑Jan 28th, 2009 7:57 amThis is not accurate, if you were told this at the bank, they don't know what they are talking about. I worked at a bank and am familiar with the procedures.
You could have shopped at the place 2 weeks or 2 months ago and it could be canceled now, it is rare that your card would be canceled right after the transaction. Most of the time, if your card has is canceled by the bank, no one has tried to make any transactions with your own card. Your case does not represent most situations involving compromised cards.
I don't know what bank you worked for in the past but could it be quite possible that things have progressed in this area since you've left?
