    — bit off topic but I've found some fraudulent activity on my card from payments in the US. Apparently the payments were made from a cloned card (rather than stolen online details). The only time I've been in the US recently was for realtimeconf / XSF summit. Therefore it might be worth checking statements to see if anything unauth'd has been going on for you.

    Lloyd: I'm assuming everyone checks all the transactions on their card as a matter of course!

  13. Lloyd

    + " extra closely" :)

  14. Kev

    I may be more anal than most. I check off every transaction that goes off a card or account against my list of expected transactions.

  15. dwd

    Kev, In fairness, you spent a while working in credit card fraud.

    ~ detection and prevention.

  18. Kev

    That may have coloured my thinking.

  19. Kev

    Although the lengths of my tracking go somewhat beyond just card transactions. I even track cash transactions. My budgets are things of great beauty (www.ynab.com is really rather nice for this).

  20. Ge0rG never had the discipline to track cash spendings

  21. Kev

    I don't get it perfectly right, because I forget sometimes. It's usually within a pound or two.
