    Contact your credit card company and have them do a chargeback on the fraudulent charge, also, cancel the card and have them issue a new card.

    I'm going to second a chargeback. Normally, that wouldn't be my first advocatable step, HOWEVER, given that I've got personal experience of dealing with those hairbrained twits on behalf of one of my customers, I have NO issues advocating a chargeback.

    They charged my customer $150 three months in a row, two charges each month. My customer charged all six transactions back. Ended up costing APlus $150 just for the six chargebacks, plus a loss of $450 income. All because they didn't terminate the service of my customer, DESPITE him following proper protocol. His CC company ended up blacklisting APlus for all their customers due to repeated abuse by APlus.

    Nope, not a good track record for them at all...

    Are you sure it was "stolen"? Because if it was, you'd be getting charges from places other than that company. Sounds like they're just charging a lot and hoping that one of the people will be the kind who doesn't read credit card bills.

    that is a huge assumption to make. its not unusual for a card to get stolen and used in one place, based on my expierence dealing with people that have had their cards used without their permission. I had a thread a while back, lady did not sign up with me but somebody used her card, but she had no other charges.

    Definitely contact your credit card company and get your money back. Within this past week I have been spammed by three companies that are hosted by aplus.net as well as been called twice by aplus.net for services! I told them they needed to fire their marketing department since they are calling another individual that does the exact same thing
