Now that just pisses me off.

I'm home watching Clone. As I sat here on the computer playing a game I got a phone call from Apple Computers. They had a question about an order I had placed. Well I hadn't placed any orders with Apple, especially for an Iphone or case.

I called my credit card company and verified the charges where on there. They were great and took the charges off, canceled my account and are going to re-register a new one to me.

I'm not sure how they get the card number they did, we don't use it. I'm not sure why they gave Apple all of my information, I'm so confused right now that I'm not sure what is going on.

Hopefully the cops pay a visit to the delivery address. They just busted a lady here that was responsible for a butt load of identity thefts.

Usually the info gets pulled online, either though phishing or an unsecure web site that an order was placed through... but if you don't use the card, that shouldn't have happened. There's also the dumpster-diving option if you toss the statements without shredding... but I would think a site like Apple would ask for the security code along with the card#.
Which makes me wonder if it was someone who had access to the card... but it must have been different shipping info which caused Apple to question the order.
Very odd.
