Identity theft makes you feel icky and violated, exposed and vulnerable.
A couple of days ago, our bank (CapitalOne360) alerted us to suspicious charges on our debit card. And they were right. The charges were suspicious. Our debit card numbers had been stolen.
We quickly cancelled our debit cards and the bank is sending us out new ones. Hurray! Of course that leaves us with only checkbook access to our money for a few days, but that’s better than nothing.
