Yep you have to babysit every account you have - credit card or otherwise. That's why I close cards I will never use again. To me it's not worth having to babysit with the risk of fraud. When the FICO garden cult morons spew out that "there's no harm in leaving it lay around" line, I'd love to just beat them. Hell yes there is potential harm, someone could commit fraud either electronically or take the card and physically use it. (Believe it or not it's happened if the stories can be trusted).
So it sucks but you might be out from what that says. Hard lesson in watching your account.
