This happened to me too. Mine was almost the identical amount $519. Mine was also from two separate transactions from a WalMart in Florida. And I also had the same charge out of Mexico!

yes if your posting a story on bank fraud it would be nice to know what banks are effected so we can see if we are being scammed, or the story is just a waste

This also happened to me last week. There was a charge for $521.96 in Spain. There were also two small charges. Luckily, I got my money back within a couple of days.

Yes, it would be very nice to know the name of the banks. I know someone who this happened to on May 13 close to the same amount and reported this the next day. And faxed the report to the bank the following Tuesday and the bank to this moment is stating that before reimbursement can be made, the bank is still investigating. I hope Chris' bank reimbursement will be more quicker than my friend's bank is.

The trend here is wal-mart. either because they dont id customers or there are some crooked employees

Same thing happened to me on Tuesday. There were three charges to my debit card from a Wal-Mart in Florida. The total was just under $1,000.00. I am currently out the money while the bank is investigating. I am being told it will be up to 10 days before the money is returned to my account. We are being told nothing about where the possible breach of information occurred.

Just curious. How many people who are commenting have MidFirst? Since the 'journalist' won't say which banks are affected, maybe we can do some deducing ourselves.

I just went to my bank and my account was completly wiped out from debit card fraud!!!!!Bank of Oklahoma! I deposited A $200.00 check today and they told me I was overdrawn by over $1000,00. Purchases were made at Walgreens,Toys are us, and many more places I have never been! I am furious because My account is locked up and I can't even get gas to go to work!!!!!! Checks are bouncing I wrote for my rent and A couple of other necessary purchases!This is insane. Nobody is safe today!This makes me sick to my stomach!!!!!!!!

Check with your bank about putting a limit on how much you can spend each day and if you need to spend more than that you call and have them up it for that one purchase. I have my credit cards and bank cards set up to where if I make a purchase more than 100.00 it sends me an email automatically and it comes right to my phone. If I spend more than 100.00 i get that email within 5 minutes of the purchase. I have had my wallet stolen before and been completely wiped out! At least if something like that were to ever happen again I get the email in such a short amount of time I can catch it fast before they get away with too much money.

We were hit too.$300 at a florida walmart. We bank at IBC in edmond. I have not used my card at a restaurant anywhere in months so I have no idea where they are getting the numbers. The only place I've used it was to pay bills, walmart, target and Scentsy. Anyone have this in common?

I too,was hit with bank fraud. I bank at TFCU and they said fraud was running rapid right now. I had three charges made in Brooklyn, NY. Two were to the same liquor store and one to a Home Depot for a total of almost $1400. This happened sometime yesterday and I got a call last night from TFCU security department to see if I had made the purchases. I was impressed that they had caught it so quickly. I filed a police report and supposedly will be reimbursed in a few days. I would suggest to everyone to check their account regularly as had not these purchases been made out of state who knows if they would have caught it.

My husband and I were hit with this bank fraud. It looks like they tested the card first and only took $9.11 from somewhere in california but later tried to take $394.02 from a get-go in Ohio. We've never even been to Ohio. Anyway, my husband and I ate at Alvarado's in Edmond last week and a couple of days later the charges were taken out of our account. We bank at Arvest and they were the ones to call us about the charges. Impressive! Turns out, only $9.11 was taken out and the other transaction was caught by our bank and declined. It was my husband's card so he had to fill out an affidavit and the money was returned immediatly. We are very fortunate. This will not detour us from eating at our favorite restaurant "Alvarado's" but we will be using a different form of payment.
