    Having had a similar thing happen to me, I sympathise with you, Sarah.
    Don't grab the rock, just go home and grab the red wine. Things can only get better now.(they can't get any damned worse):thumbup1::thumbup1:

    Did your bank not contact you, I have had card details stolen a couple of times and each time the bank has notified me before I have even realised. They then sort it all out.

    No stress, except then having to wait on new cards.

    Hope you are getting your money back.

    Is it the same with credit cards or are they not covered anymore for for fraud either? My husband always gets me to use his credit card instead of my debit cos he says it's safer!

    I'm the same and there is some logic to this. Any single purchase on a credit card above £100 is protected by law. That covers fraud, suppliers going bankrupt, whatever. Under £100 it's more or less up to the card issuer and most of them seem to charge for fraud protection these days. Then again, I don't too often buy anything over £100 so I'm not too sure if using a credit card really gives me much extra protection but on balance I think I'd rather have my credit card cleared out than my bank account. In any case, I've had a credit card for 20 odd years and been buying stuff on the net around 10 and only ever had one dodgy transaction – a payment put through twice at a petrol station – and that was pretty quickly dealt with by the card company.

    Anyway, the biggest crooks are the card companies themselves with the interest they charge.
