      My bank card was compromised also with small test charge coming from UK. We ran Midway then Sandbox and the charge was made 4 days after finishing. Not sure where compromise was started.  Everyone watch your accounts.

      Typically, the cards are compromised at restaurants where the server disappears with your card or gas pumps that have a “skimmer” stuck onto the real credit card scanner. I have had my credit card compromised on 3 different motorcycle trip. All 3 times has been a restaurant. To combat this, always give the pump scanner a good “yank” to see if it’s real. Never let your card out of your sight at a rrestaurant. Carry cash for those sit-down restaurants where they take your card to the back.

      My AmEx was compromised shortly after I’d returned home. AmEx said someone in DC was trying to charge $1,800 for merchandise.

      My card was compromised at the best western in Chattanooga. They charged me for 4 rooms at $210 each. didn’t find out about it till I got to Knoxville where I checked my bank app. I didn’t get a receipt before leaving because of an accident that closed the office,  When I called them to find out what was going on, they said I agreed to pay for 4 rooms but could not tell me which rooms I paid for because of privacy concerns. They did agree that I should  have received the  RFTW rate and changed the total to $420 for 4 rooms. I have contacted the Best Western Corporation HQ. about this but they said they couldn’t help unless I could provided them with the room numbers I paid for! I turned this over to My bank. They are investigating.

      My card was hit for $175 at a 7-11 in Cedar Park, Texas.  I was in Chicago at the time.  The last time I used that particular card was on the Run.
