[Life] Card theft!

So, today I get a little letter in the mail. I open it, and find:

Dear Valued Cardholder,

We are writing to provide you with a replacement Washington Mutual ATM/Visa Check Card and inform you about a situation that affects the security of your current card.

Visa recently informed us that the information on your Washington Mutual ATM/Visa Check Card was revealed to unauthorized persons by a company that processes ATM transactions (not affiliated with Washington Mutual). Visa has not informed Washington Mutual of the name of the company involved, nor will this information be provided to us.

< Lots of info on what to do next, etc... >


Not going to provide the name? Dammit, I want to know who so I can ensure I never use that ATM or Point-of-Sale service again! Grmph.

I'm reasonably good. I don't leave receipts anywhere without shredding the card number, I try not to make it easy to steal my ID info, and I only do online purchases from places with strong crypto. And now the ATM companies are giving away the card info??

Ugh. Gotta change aaaall my services over to the new card, etc. Whee...
