I have all my cards send me an email for every charge made. Same with ATM/Debt Card.  I get it on my phone within a few minutes sometimes a few seconds.. Several of them are fraud crazy, but guess that's better than having what happened to you. They would have been all over the multiple pizzas and gas fill ups.

 

You can also use a virtual type online purchase with many cards. They give you a one time use only number just for that purchase. The merchant doesn't even know that it's not a normal card.

 

Good luck. About 25 years ago same thing happened to me but a guy at car dealer took it out of my car when I forgot to take it with me during service. I didn't even have to fill out a report or even sign my name. I just called the credit card company. Turns out they went after the gas station that put several hundred gallons in a single car. They told me it was some scam between the thief and the gas station. Even if not, they said anyone who accepts a stolen credit card (at least back then) is responsible for insuring that it is being used by it's owner.

They should have timestamped video surveillance. Report it... you might get lucky and catch these criminals..

Likely a card reader on the Redbox machine. Go check the Redbox and see if its still there. They can be hard to spot. The CC company should have this figured out quickly because their fraud software analyzes multiple cards reporting fraud that have been used in a common place prior to the start of the fraud. Knock on wood I haven't had any but did get a call from one of the Philippine banks saying they would replace one of my cards because there was the potential for fraud - somewhere I had been had been flagged.

Was the Redbox machine inside or outside of a store?

Arizona was one of the locations listed in a news story that I recently read about card skimmers being found on redbox machines.

You should certainly go back and examine the machine. If you find anything suspicious, advise store management.
