Hi, I am thinking about getting a BOA card so that I can use their Shop Safe feature with virtual/temporary card numbers.
My question is: If the virtual card # is stolen, will BOA still cancel your 'real' card and send you a new one with a new number, etc? I'm trying to avoid that hassle and I'm wondering if the temporary card numbers are the answer.
So lets say I get a virtual card number, and allow $50 to be purchases on it. I purchase something for $45 on a sketchy website. The number is stolen and they attempt to use the virtual card number. Will I be alerted to this fraud? And will this cause BOA to close down my real card or just the virtual number?
Thanks in advance!
