Ordered from PBK for the first time ~4 weeks ago, then read some of the threads on here. Had a transaction declined Tues at the gas pump. Got home to find a message on the machine from Chase fraud dept. Turns out a transaction to iTunes for 99cents at 6AM ET set them off for some reason and it was not my purchase. They immediately shut down the acct.
Anyone have unauthorized iTunes transactions? I'm guessing they are trying to see if the acct is active and charge a small amt that might go unnoticed since a lot of people use iTunes and would assume they had downloaded a song. Also, parent might give kids access to iTunes and would just say, "Jr. must have dowloaded a song" and not really pay attention.
Anyone have something similar haoppen?
I know Paypal does something where on large transactions they first charge $1 to your card which usually triggers the bank to either reject or verify the transaction. I guess small transactions are considered suspicious. I remember in college charging 99 cents at the drive thru window @ Wendys.
