Victim of identity theft

I was notified by the company who issued me credit card for purchasing such expensive things that I did not make. As far as I remember, I did not gave my account to anyone and did not make any purchases yet. What should I do when it still continues to charge in my credit card? If proven that those purchases were not done by me, will I be excused in paying it?

    The first thing to do is to look for the statement of the merchant and look where the transaction was done since it will be a great helping hand for the company in tracing the one who made those purchases. In order to protect yourself from identity theft, ask for the company's fraud protection services that can help you in knowing about the purchases made using the credit card.

    DBS charges interest rate of 2.28% for its car loans to individuals that apply online and that is the lowest rate offered for both new and used car loans in Singapore.
