Bank of America phoned me for verification when I made a credit card charge to pay 'the German news server' individual.net--- because it was an out-of-the-country purchase. And they specifically asked me if the charge was for online gaming! That was amusing as 99.9% of my purchases are rather modest and made at my local Wal-Mart! (I use a different card for online fabric shopping- that card gets a good work-out every so often.) I was very pleased to know that they watch out for me like that- the charge was only about $14.00- so they watch out for their customers even with small amounts. I like that.

A couple of weeks ago I got a call from Wells Fargo re: our charge card. I was asked for no personal information--they were calling to confirm purchases. I'd charged the fee for the seminars in Novi, MI, and about 20 minutes later charged some embroidery designs from a company in Australia. They called about 15 minutes after I'd made the Australian purchase to make sure it was actually me that made them. I had no idea they checked accounts that frequently. I was impressed!!

Bank of America not only notified me online (which I did not catch since I worked this morning and entertained a neighbor at lunch) but they called me and confirmed that I had not been in Texas this morning. I am amazed that not only did someone catch this activity on a Sunday, but they actually called me on the phone! It took a little while before I believed that it was really BOA calling, I had to verify a few things before I let them have any information.
I do believe that banks are catching up to the perpetrators of identity theft and fraud!
If your bank allows you to set alarms when your purchases reach a certain limit, do so! My bank has called me twice now. Once was a legitimate purchase, but the withdrawals this morning were not.
Kudos to BOA for consumer protection. NAYY, just a surprised and pleased account and card holder.
