    It is called "Phishing" what you must do is:

    1) Call your bank and make sure there are no charges

    2) If charges were made you can simply issue an allegation

    3) Most likely there was no such charge and they are trying to get your info, mark the email as spam and forget about it, you are all set.

    4) If no charges are reflected by your bank, then just call back the bank after 72 hrs. to verify.


    Option B) If the email is real: Your son, brother, girlfriend may have just used your card without asking :p
