The merchant can get the new CC info without anyone giving it out according to the article I linked to in the above comments.
I never got a credit report. Should I get one?
It stayed between Chase and myself. After the bank gave me the new CC the only thing that changed was the account number. The expiration and security code were the same. When the merchant charged it, the email receipt I always get had the OLD CC number as the charged account but the charge was on the NEW CC. I'm pretty sure Chase is at fault for the merchant getting the new number... in fact I'd bet on it. They didn't seem to care too much since it was only $9.95 a month but when I threatened to switch banks they gave it more priority.
I swear I think I know more about fraud and CC abuse than the Chase people.
