I got notification that my American Express statement was available yesterday evening. It claimed I hadn't logged into my account since June, which concerned me. I was sure I had paid the July bill. So, I logged into my account. I looked at the too large balance with a sinking feeling. Maybe, in the midst of our travels, I had forgotten to make that payment. The payment had been posted, so that wasn't the case. I knew I'd spent some extra money, but didn't think I'd spent that much. I looked at the charges, and discovered almost $1300 in charges I didn't make. I didn't know whether to be relieved the charges weren't mine, or concerned about what other credit card information might have fallen into the wrong hands. I called American Express, and 30 minutes later the charges were gone, the account closed, and a new card had been promised. There was a happy ending, fortunately.
