Where’s my money gone?


Over the holiday period I got a credit card bill from Oracle Norway for £3230.12. I have no idea what this is for, and as far as I know I’ve never dealt with Oracle Norway before, so my bank are treating it as a credit card fraud case. 🙁

What’s more I have no idea how they got my card details because this isn’t a card I use for anything Oracle related, like travel etc.

I contacted Oracle Norway, who put me on to Oracle Romania, who have passed me on to a finance department, who have now passed me on to another finance department. As yet no indication of what I supposedly bought or did to warrant this charge. The initial issue was worrying, but what’s more worrying is the amount of time it’s taken to get any response. I guess the holidays have had an impact though.

In the short term I’m not that bothered because my bank have already refunded the cash, as is their way when investigating potential fraud cases, but I would certainly like to know how this happened in the first place so I can prevent it from happening again…

  1. Hi Tim,

    Glad that you were able to get it resolved or at least on the way to a solution. Sounds weird though to get a bill from Oracle Norway.
