Today someone debited $700 from my checking account while I was at work. Fortunately, they were stopped as they reached my withdrawal limit. I have already canceled my card and logged an inquiry, tomorrow I should receive a temporary credit for the amount stolen and hopefully it'll stay there when I am found to be not liable. HOWEVER, the question still stands: How did these bastards get my card number, fabricate a fake card, then get my PIN?
And also, I happen to know the Bank and around what time the money was withdrawn (I check my account obsessively when I have a student loan payment going through, frankly, I still don't trust machines), so how do I catch these guys? I have to wait until tomorrow to file a police report, so I assume they'll write down my side of the story, but are they going to take my clues seriously?
