    really! i've never been there in my life.... i've had my card with me for the past year the whole time, used it at ATM and in shops, you reckon someone is using my identity and putting money onto cards so it cant be traced???

    It's from Pret a Manger yes. If you have never been there, someone used your details when they signed up for it.
    Call the bank asap.

    does anyone else use your card? the amount of times i've thought what on earth is this.. and its just something my hubby has done.

    fraud......had it on my credit card yesterday too.

    ring bank asap ,you're covered for theft. i mean like as soon as you read this!

    mmm. dont know how they do it but I only use my card online. now wondering if it`s anything to do with a company we are using from here?

    mine had transactions for flowers and tickets for something as well as pret a mange. sounds very strange that we both have the same company on our cards and yet have never used them

    how much was it for? these sound like small purchases, had someone try and take £750 from my card a couple of weeks ago, it was just after I signed up to a bingo site online, reckon it was from there.
    Good luck with sorting it out

    its been charged to my credit card. only found out yesterday when I phoned credit card company to pay . Balance didnt seem right so I queried it. they told me pret a mange was on it and a flower company and a ticket company. think the whole amount is about £between £550 and £650. I`m pig sick. I had never heard of any of those companies
