I just received this email from my credit card company:
“Your account was used to make a purchase above the notification account.”
The email reminded me of the amount I had set, the date and amount of the purchase,
and the merchant. It’s OK; I had made the transaction. I’m sharing this example with
you as a follow up to FPW’s program on ID theft. Set a dollar amount on your
accounts slightly above your usual purchase range. In the event your credit card
is stolen (and you haven’t missed it yet) or your identity
compromised, your credit card issuer can notify you.
Not all cards offer this service; check with your card issuer.
