    Looking at that list, the only thing we have in common is Netflix. Most of my charges are on the Lower East Side and East Village. I used an ATM at City College on the West Side at 137th and Amsterdam. I doubt it had a skimmer attached to it though. I checked before using it. Since you're posting anonymously, I don't think there's any issue with you listing where you use your card. I'll be a little more careful though and I won't go into more details. I'm also still having issues accessing my online banking. Yesterday I was able to open it, but now it's not recognizing my mother's maiden name, which I know is being correctly entered.

    That's completely fine, Laura. Google's Blogger just updated the comment system to include inline comments (which means replies to specific comments) so it's a little confusing. The grey comments are replies to the white comments above them. It's like a smaller conversation in the conversation.

    I think I may have double posted. Sorry

    I just realized you are all from NYC right? I know it could have been charges we put through a while ago but the Citibank Rep told me people were affected all the way to the Pentagon. I looked at my recent charges for places that might have a broader range of customers. Has anyone recently put through charges to:
    UPS, NYC Taxi Cab, Netflix, Duane Reade or Grocery stores on the upper east side?

    Just realized all you guys are probably from NYC. I just stumbled on this blog because I did a search for Citibank and compromised credit cards. Looks like Citibank has trouble this area pretty frequently which scares me.

    Hope there is not any danger in divulging the places I used my card. I am not very savvy with this stuff. The Citibank Rep I spoke to said it has affected people all the way to the Pentagon. So I was just looking for charges that might cover a wider population.. Have any of you used your card for a taxi in the last few weeks? What about UPS? Or Netflix? I have a lot of charges on the upper east side on Lex and 3rd. Anyone up there a lot? Also I realize it could be a charge that was put through long ago.


    If you look at your history, did anyone put a charge through at:
    LLBean Catalog,

    Happened to me too and I am also upset they won't tell us who the merchant was. Maybe we can figure it out. I think it happened on the 26th or the 25th. We can compare establishments or locations. I am in NYC. Anyone else?

    That's something that should change. We're the customers. We should have more control over our information, and have the option of choosing where we spend our money. =/

    it was with a different bank but with disclosing the specific establishment that triggered security hold …. seems standard procedure apparently.

    It happened to you too? This is the first time for me. I'm a little surprised. I've had a card from another bank for 7 years and never had this issue.

    same here, they wouldn't disvulge the paritcular store.
