I live in the United States. One of my credit cards issued by a bank based in the US (namely, JPMorgan Chase Bank) was used fraudulently. I informed my bank, who Informed me they would close my credit card account, then give me a new credit card with a different account number.
What's the impact on my credit score, if any?
The fraud did not cause me to miss any payment on my credit card account. I detected the fraud within 2 days, and called my bank immediately.
Excerpts from the e-mail I received from the bank:
We closed your Chase credit card account ending in XXXX to prevent unauthorized transactions, as we recently discussed.
What you need to know about your replacement credit card:
You'll need to update the new account number if you have automatic bill pay set up for this credit card.
We'll notify Equifax, TransUnion and Experian that we closed your other account. Their records should be updated within 60 days.
