I have alerts set up on my credit cards for basically every single charge. Last week, one came through for Vail resorts on my Ink Bold card. I hadn’t been to Vail. I hadn’t ordered anything online. My card was physically with me. Steve, who skis in Vail a lot, doesn’t have this card. And, he was here in town all week, anyhow.
I rarely use my Ink Bold card – usually only for Verizon, Comcast, office supply stores, and hotels. I did use it back in July to buy a ski pass for Steve’s birthday/Christmas present. But there shouldn’t be an additional $69 charge, eight months later, related to that. It does mean, however, that I’ve used my card at Vail resorts. So, it makes me wonder if there’s a computer glitch or someone there has accessed credit card info.
In any event, I called Chase to report and dispute it. Unfortunately, I can’t dispute it online like I can with my personal credit cards. The Ink Bold is a business credit card. They are reversing the charge and will follow up on it. There may a perfectly legitimate reason for the charge and I’m just not remembering it or didn’t know something. It’s happened before with other charges.
But, this time, I really doubt it.
