Security Flagged

It always feel wrong, but somehow fun to cut up a credit card. Recently, a voice message at home from a 1-800 number, apparently from MasterCard Security made me a little nervous. After talking to the person, and not recognizing the number, I decided to call their regular 1-800 number.

Turned out someone in the US had tried to buy something from HomeDepot, and used my card number. They had the wrong expiry date though, and that flagged something at MasterCard. They canceled my card so I got to cut it up.

Nerve wracking at first, but not too much hassle after that. Just need to update the automatic payments.
