AppleCard Fraud Alert

Woke up this moment to an alert on my phone. Opened up my wallet and hit decline.

I have not used my physical card in a month, so I wonder how this happened.

Now I need to order a new card and I suppose scratch Sri Lanka off my bucket list!

San Antonio, TX (in the old city)

“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

Contact Support and they will issue a new number to your card; it will take maybe 10 minutes. Remember to change any recurring authorized charges to the new number (don’t ask how I know this facepalm)

Edit: I had a similar issue. The best I can figure is that the actual number either was guessed or was part of a breach. The good thing is that I didn’t have to wait 10 working days to get a “new” card.

You can also use the Wallet app to lock your card in the mean time.

Short of a breach at Goldman, I think I'm secure from compromised account details so long as I'm using the card only with Apple Pay from the Wallet app.
