Long story short - I'm trying to catch someone commiting Card Fraud and YOU might be able to HELP - have you ever used Alitalia? If so scroll down to the BOLD text.
Apologies for the rather long Post Title, hopefully you weren't too confused by it, or were and decided to see what I'm on about.
Anyway, just over an hour ago I discovered Card Fraud on my VISA card after logging in to check it on-line, completely by chance.
I've contacted both my Building Society and The Police, but I hoped someone here might be able to help in this little investigation of mine.
2 fraud debits have occured, however, the second one is to Alitalia, the airline company, and I have a number in the Transaction Details, which I think is a referrence number.
If anyone has ever used Alitalia and purchased a ticket from them, can you please let me know how long your Invoice Reference number is?
I will be calling Alitalia on Monday morning as soon as their offices open at 08:00, though I'm not sure what they will and won't be able to tell me from this possible referrence number, or if they will be willing to at all.
The police will get back to me in a 'couple of days' according to the helpful gentleman on the Police Fraud line that took my details this evening, but since the purchase was made only yesterday I thought I might start getting some information myself.
For anyone who has had to report a crime recently might have good or bad experience, but my collegues in the recent months have had very slow progress from them so I thought 'If I can do something to stop this person from getting away with it, I WILL!'
I'll be damned if someone's going to walk away with my hard earned money!
Anyway, rant over, if anyone can help with the reference number, I'd be greatful.
