Bite them

Scary in a comfortingesque sort of way

I just got an email from my bank saying there was suspected fraud activity on the account. I (not using the email provided links, just in case) logged into the bank and checked the alerts and they had a number for me to call. I call the number and sure enough, there are about 10 transactions, for small amounts, that I didn't charge. So they cancelled the card, told me to watch and make sure none of fraudulent charges went through and call back if they do.

It's freaky scary that this happened, freaky scary that they noticed (how? why? what tipped them off?), and sorta comforting that they noticed so quickly.
