How is it that my credit cards get used by people in distant states?

Over the last few years I've had my master card used by people in far away places several times. I keep getting new cards. I don't lose them, they are still in my pocket. The charges come from the opposite ends of the country.
I'm just wondering, in general, what's happening, and am I an outlier, or is this becoming really common?
And how does it work when they have merchandise delivered? Don't they get caught?
As you can see, I don't have much of a criminal mind.
