Years ago, I had my card # stolen, from all places, through Nextel's main billing center. Somebody who worked there thought that I should pay for a radiator for their 80's Oldsmobile. It sucked for a month while I tried to get everything reversed, but it worked out in the end.

Now that I deal with fraud investigations all day long as part of my job, I can tell you that it can happen to anyone, and it happens all the time. Check fraud is the fastest declining fraud right now, although it still happens (not very many people write checks anymore). Credit card fraud is pretty regular. Most credit card #'s are stolen by someone on the job, then sold to people who use them for fencing type operations.

I also saw a lot of couterfeiting this holiday season. There have been many cases of counterfeit money orders and traveler's checks.
