Just had the money reimbursed for the second billing period of my debit card ripoff. 1800 Euros, to add to the 2400 Euros in the first month.

I may have made a small profit on the deal. One of the fraudulent transactions was for 300 Euros with an online car parts dealer. I just noticed that - presumably because some part was unavailable - there was a 40 Euro refund made on that transaction. I won't report this, not so much because I feel entitled to the money, as because I suspect that there is no procedure to handle it.

Age 55, retired July 1, 2012; DW is 59 and working for 4 more years. Current portfolio is 1950K split 50 stocks/20 bonds/30 cash. Renting house, no debts.

I logged on to my bank account this morning to check that my mortgage was paid (and it was) and just because I read this thread I decided to check my credit cards charges as well since they were just a click away. Sadly I had a $500 charge to Disneyland a couple days back which neither my wife nor I had any knowledge about.

I seem to be getting fraudulent charges a couple times a year now and it is getting really annoying.
