Cancel your card. Your CC company shouldn't have any problems tracking the person down, especially if they ordered PPV for themselves.

If I saw unauthorized charges, I'd definitely cancel the card.

Edit: fixed typo.

Yup, cancel the card. Could have been compromised online, phone order or from a in-store purchase via a receipt (some stores don't block out your card number or expiration date on the printout, if you tossed it and didn't shred it, that's another way). As others mentioned, could be a friend of family member too. Something to consider.

In another life I developed fraud indentification systems, strategies and business processes for one of the largest credit card companies in the US. You'd be surprised how good the investigators are at tracking folks down. Unless its part of a professional ring, good chance they'll get nabbed if the dollar amount is high enough. FBI and Secret Service get involved with the big rings. Interesting stuff.

Though it sounds like there aren't huge amounts involved, so the credit card company will probably write it off or charge it back to the merchant. Mail Order/Online purchases favor the consumer and bank in this case.

My advice would be to contact the 3 credit bureaus in the US and put a fraud watch on your file. If the individual potentially got more personal info, they could apply for credit in your name. A fraud watch puts a flag on your file that requires the lender and in some cases the credit bureau itself to contact you if someone applies for credit with your info. Adds a step for you, but makes it much more difficult for a fraudster to tarnish your credit.

Talk to the fraud department at your CC company. They have the numbers.

Don't worry, you aren't liable for the charges.

I checked on PPV and movielink.com and they are both services for downloading video to PC,so no cable or satellite is needed.
I would also delete all CC and personal info. from all your internet browser/toolbar caches just to be sure.

Call your CC company and tell them that those two charges you did not make, then cancel and re-open another account with them. I'd also try putting a watch on your file like tazdevl mentioned.

Cancel it ASAP if you haven't already, unless it really was a family member, which seems highly unlikely based on your posts.

It is one of those things I do once in a blue moon (i.e. once every year or two).
Many of those deserved to be "ressucitated" IMO.

I hadn't even seen that thread ironically. :)
I never thought of having that power, but when it comes to threads, I guess I do ;)

Some Dolt stole my CC # and tried to use it in person at a store out of town, as well as online today :evil:

Fortunately my credit card company caught a discrepancy in the information, and rejected the transaction in the store.

Now the CC# is cancelled and they are setting up a new one for me.

What a hassle!!

:evil: :evil:

PS - I use a credit monitoring agency so I'm gonna check to make sure my credit profile is not affected!
