Crap

I was checking my credit card balances today and working on my snowballing when I noticed a charge for $314.16 that I did not endorse, nor make.

I called Comcast, who charged me the amount and they had absolutely no record of that payment on my account, and stated that my last payment was on Sept 16, weeks after this new charge.

I called my credit card company and filed a dispute. It has been taken care of, but now I'm freakin' out about identity theft and what not. I asked the man at my credit card company if I should be worried but he said no (truthfully, I don't think he understood much English).

So tell me the truth, should I be concerned about this?

I wouldn't be too worried. Just keep a close eye on the account and make sure no other charges show up. If anything else does, then just see about closing that account and getting a new one. Hopefully, it was just an accounting error and won't happen again!

I would just keep a close watch. Comcast may have made a mistake and not realized it.

Keep a close eye on that account and go to https://www.annualcreditreport.com/cra/index.jsp
and make sure that information is all correct. I wouldn't worry, sometimes posting errors are made, but you can't be too careful these days.
