    Hey,

    Just noticed my credit card has been billed the equivalent of $2700AU by Hertz UK. Now I'm not sure how they got these details as I live in Australia and have never been to Britain, but I though people should be aware to keep an eye out for oddities on their credit cards.
    I use all the appropriate security things (or so I thought), so just beware guys, thats alot of money and it could happen to anyone.

    Regards

    Josh

    Sounds more like a case of identity theft.

    Yeah, I'd report it, sounds like someone's got your details and is starting a spending spree.

    Hetz as in the car hire service?
    Yeah, I'd report this because it's not the company but someone has your details and they're using them...

    I went to this one doctor in the area for major knee surgery and all he did was draw my blood in a syringe and drink it!

    If you're in the DC area, do not go see Dr. Acula.
