This morning I woke up to see a charge on my other credit card that I can’t validate. This time around it’s a $24.99 charge for a “digital purchase” from Amazon. It’s complicated.
1. The cancellation of my first credit card has automatically bumped this second credit card to being the default payment method on some of my accounts.
2. I made a Kindle eBook purchase from Amazon the on Sunday, but it wasn’t for $24.99, it was for $1.99. Additionally, this purchase was made using credit that I have in my Amazon account.
3. I see no order for $24.99 in my order Amazon list.
4. I did make a $24.99 purchase yesterday, but that was with Apple, and that purchase was made using credit on my iTunes account so there should be no charge to this credit card for this purchase.
The charge is currently “pending” so I’ve put a request in to be notified when the charge is officially posted to my account so that I can review it then. If I cannot verify the charge I’ll have to file a fraud claim for this credit card as well. And if it comes to this I’ll have to time the claim carefully so as not to put myself in a state of possessing no valid credit cards.
It looks as if I’ll have to return to my strict credit card policy, having one card dedicated to online purchase, in order to stop these incidents (if possible). I simply cannot spend the time and effort tracking down these unknown purchases any longer.

Going to be a busy day…
