    Tesco Finance rang this morning to ask if we'd downloaded any music from a website - can't remember the name - something like Nemcas?

    Anyway we said we hadn't so they've put a stop on our cards as apparantly fraudsters use this website alot to download stuff to see if the number is good to go and then they go on a full blown shopping spree! :scared1:

    Thanks god they rang and checked!

    Holy moly, same thing happened to Phil's credit card last week, they rang us and luckily caught it!

    We still have to get a new card though, that's the third one in less than 2 months though because of fraud...Phil now isn't that keen on using his card :sad2:
