If you’re really really worried abut this stuff, then get rid of your cards, delete yourself from Facebook., Twittter and Instagram.
Go off the grid and pay cash for everything (Of course, you’ll need a keycard to be able to withdraw cash)
We have a Coles near us that don’t accept cash.
I don’t do social media and only have two cards apart from my rarely used Myki Mouse card, have never let the card into the hands of others so don’t know how it got scammed, I use paypal on ebay and that comes from another account with no card access.
That is why I think my card was scanned as I had tapped my wallet on a scanner in the past before I had the one that was scammed.

It’s not personal - credit card number generators generate thousands of numbers a second. If your credit card number coincides with a correct CCV guess, your card gets used. Don’t go thinking it was something you could have done differently.
It’s not like the old days when thieves could pinch the carbon and forge your signature.
