This morning my wife discovered an unauthorized charge to our credit card from Skip the dishes. After a quick google search it appears that it has happened with them before from other people. The funny thing is that we don’t have an account with them nor have ever used their service. Apparently they do not care at all that this happens to people as their payments are processed through a 3rd party service like Stripe. I know this because I have already contacted their customer service and they are unwilling and or unable to do anything to help me.
After a lengthy call to my credit card provider, they said that they should be willing to help me but only after the pending charge clears and actually debits my account. Until then all I can do it wait. I am thankful that my wife checked the statement this morning, as I normally hardly ever look at the pending or past charges but only look at the balance if there is one. Just so this does not happen to someone else please keep an eye on your credit card accounts and debit accounts for any unusual charges and report them immediately.
If you think that you may be a victim of unauthorized activity to your account please do the following:
- Change your passwords immeditley
- Notify your bank or credit card issuer immediately
- Report any transactions that you didn’t make or approve
- Check your credit report for any credit that you didn’t apply for.
I look forward to hearing from you in regard to your mortgage needs.
