More on my compromised card

About a month ago I wrote that my credit card had been compromised. After that I received my new card and destroyed the old one and thought no more about it.

Until today, that is, when I actually looked at my card balance and transactions and saw that there were 11 transactions totalling $1701.22. Ack! They told me a month ago that the charges would be reversed in about 10 business days but that timeframe was up two weeks ago.

Of course I called them right away and they said that they must be running behind. I was supposed to have received some affadavit thingy where I confirm that these charges are not mine and I haven't received that, either. Sigh. The guy said that if I don't receive the affadavit within 10 business days, or two weeks from now, to call them again.

They're giving me 150 extra air miles for the inconvenience of having to wait for this to be cleared up. That's nice, but I hope that they're going to reverse any interest charges these stolen transactions incurred. I don't want to be stuck paying interest on that much of a balance.
