2 years ago I applied for a USAA credit card.  American Express. Didn't use.  Today I got a letter stating someone unknown to me had access the account and added themselves to my personal profile as my child. I called and over the next 45 minutes discontinued the card because of this security lapse on their end.

I've my credit card compromised twice, too.  I think one of the times the card number may have been taken by a wait person at a Smoky Mtn. base meeting which was held in a local restaurant.  But, it wasn't a problem for me.  A quick phone call and the problem was fixed.  The credit card company, however, had to eat the cost of a surfboard and some other stuff.  Not much need for a surfboard in the mountains, don'tcha know.

The credit card eating the cost means you and me and the rest of us actually ate the cost in increased costs of doing business.

The unfortunate fact seems to be that the major chains will seemingly give a line of credit to a goldfish with a spotty credit record.

Sadly, you are absolutely correct.  There is no free lunch.  Somebody, somewhere has to pay.
