I know this is a cc forum, but I was hoping you all could help me out. I found out somewhat recently that someone either got ahold of my debit card info or my bank account info.
So far they've charged about $200 (which may not seem like a lot, but to a college student that's a good month's groceries). I've called my bank and filed claims and am still in the hell of a process to get my money (if any) back.
My main concern here is my identity. I'm worried someone may have gotten ahold of my information and will use it and cause me a world of problems in all aspects possible.
Is there any way to go about protecting it that is better than others?
As of right now I've closed the card and put an ID, social and security question block on my accounts at the bank. Should I do this for my local credit union too? I'm looking to get married soon and to credit problems would kill me especially in looking for a house. Last time I checked I was at a decent 715 for a low 20 year old.
Any advice, suggestions and recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
