How did someone get my Debit Card number and use it in a Walmart without the card?
It usually happens in restaurants because once your server walks away with the debit card, they can make a copy then have a duplicate one made. That's why I always pay cash or a credit card when we go out to eat. To be on the safe side, you should put your name on fraud alert through Trans Union Fraud Dept. Their toll free # 1-800-680-7289. They'll notify the other 2 bureaus and must be renewed every 90 days in order to keep it active. Better to be safe than sorry later.

you need to call each of the credit bureaus and have them put a fraud alert on your account - it is free. Also have them send you a copy of the credit reports so you can check for anything wrong with them. you can have them put a fraud alert on your credit every 3 months I believe, that will stop a lot of potential fraud on your accounts. Best to call your bank or the company you have that debit card with, cancel it and have them send you a new card. My mom's credit card got used - without the card. Turns out it was a company that was packaging her prescriptions, they had her card number on file and one of their employees used it online or for over the phone purchases... If they had an actual card, they were probably more sophisticated crooks with the magnetic tape creator, then just slap it on the back of another card, run it thru the card reader and there you go. it's no fun going thru that stuff.

I had a similar situation happen to me, turns out they had a cashier run the card with an old slip from a pizza delivery driver. You know those little machines that slide the ink over the paper that is covering your card? They saved that and used it to charge up all kinds of goodies. As for fixing it, I bank with TD Bank and they have cards that are completely flat, so you cannot take an impression of them. They also have allowed me twice to change my card for a new one when I thought it was compromised.
