A few days ago we reported that some BBVA select cardholders were being hit with fraudulent transactions. Unfortunately it seems that the problem is more widespread than this as a lot of readers are reporting similar fraudulent transactions on other cards, I suspect there has been a large data breach somewhere. I’d recommend checking your own accounts, unauthorized transactions made may include (keep in mind fraudsters often make purchases at legitimate merchants to test whether card information is correct):

To make matters worse some cardholders have reported their card as stolen, requested a new card and before the new card has even arrived new fraudulent charges have started to appear.
