Such a high spend in 24 hours. Not too smart but then I guess they just wanted to get as much as they can before you or Amex detects the fraud.
The really cool thing is AmEx called, text, and emailed me within a 2 minutes of my 100+ apple computers, monitors and accessories that I was having shipped to the Ukraine overnight rush delivery. There is this thing called an I.P. address and when you purchase something, it is recorded with every online transaction. So when you make an odd purchase from an unknown I.P. address it throws up a red flag. Everyone has a home I.P. address just like a home phone number, so when they don't match up ... well you get the idea.
Can you imagine if you opened up your statement and saw those kinds of charges? Unfortunately I had to change my card number after having the same number for over 10 years.
