I would only do it if 100% sure though. Otherwise it might stuff up you chance of driving to the repair shop.

    Its the work thunder box mate. They buy in bulk from Costco.
    And they are quite soft on the toosh too. Thick enough as well to stop any finger protrusion.

    Damn & blast! Seems I have become a victim of credit card fraud.

    Noticed a transaction on the bank statement I didn't recognise for the tiny sum of $1.37 for an online purchase I didn't make & dated at a time we had no internet/phone reception.

    Seemed fishy, so I called the bank & once through their laborious press this for that & that for this 'caller deflection system' I eventually got to speak to someone who immediately confirmed that my card was 'compromised' & explained the tiny amount taken is just to determine whether the card is active, before using it to make much larger purchases.

    Ha! they would have been disappointed as it was my debit card I reserve for online shopping, & never have more than a couple of dollars in it except when making a purchase.

    Somehow though someone got hold of my number online, AND the chap at the bank knew immediately it was compromised.

    The card is now cancelled & I have to go through the hassle associated with a new card number. Could've been worse, but I can't help but wonder why the bank had not contacted me to tell me the card was compromised.

    Could it be because the bank got hacked & they wanted to keep it quiet.

    Take care folks... they walk among us!

    Thanks Cuppa. That's a great idea about using a debit card for online purchases and just topping it up prior to spending. Cheers mate.

    Thanks Cuppa.
    A little while back I got hacked by Amazon , yes that American mob, only a small amount around $20 .
    Hit the bank strait away and it was sorted pretty smart. Only problem is al the messing around getting a new card.
    I check my accounts daily as one is not that wealthy and I don`t need somebody knocking over what I have.
    Even headed down to the local cop shop and reported it.
    CASH is KING.

    If you have mobile banking, you can set up instant push notifications whenever a purchase is made over $X on your credit card for example.
    I had this set to $1 on my credit card and noticed a fraudulent transaction a couple of years ago.
    I phoned the bank and had my card cancelled within 20 mins of the transaction.
