    I just got a call from a guy who said he worked for a fraud-prevention place for my bank. Someone had tried to make a large purchase using my debit card. He said they had declined the purchase as I did not have the funds in the bank to cover it. Thank God!
    He cancelled my card and I have to contact the bank in the morning to get a new card. I only keep in the checking what I need to pay bills and for small purchases. He said he had already found 10 more on his shift today.

    This has happened to me also.Someone was using my card # in Coco Beach, Fla. to buy alot of gas(over $400 worth) & a fur coat. Come to find out, someone who worked at my bank sold my & about a dozen other peoples debit card #. It took me quite awhile to put things back together. Im glad you found out as quick as you did!

    Banks don't typically call and discuss this type of business over the phone. I strongly suggest you call your bank ASAP and verify that this really happened.

    Wells Fargo has a fraud department that will call if they see suspicious activity they will not ask you personal info but they will ask if you made the purchase or not.

    I hope you didn't give him any information because he could be out there trying to use your card right now.
