I've been hit with fraudulent charges Steam for $81.88 twice this week.  My wife's credit card got hit for three separate charges on Monday, and my card got hit today for two separate charges today.

The bank's fraud system caught the purchase on my wife's card.  Since my card had been used to make legitimate Steam purchases in the past, the transaction sailed thru -- I only caught it when I looked at the bank statement.

Check your records.  All five transactions were for $81.88

Thought the thread title was for a new game.  I was like "meh, it could be interesting".

Sounds like you've got spyware or a hacker in your system. Two different cards having similar activity at once? Suggests the same entity possesses the full details of both your cards (name, number, CVV, where you live). And, just saying, the number 8 is lucky in Chinese culture.... $81.88 is a fortunate-looking number.

Every year or so I'll have a credit card number stolen and then the bank catches it when someone buy dick pills in Estonia or pays a utility bill in Baltimore.  Then about a month later, I get a notice that some merchant got hacked and I'm eligible for a free year of credit monitoring.
