Use Skype- shut down your credit card account

Skype_aid_1Brian Youngblood called Chase Bank using Skype to get some information he needed.  The next day Chase began declining charges on his card and when he checked with customer service he was told that since he had called them from an "unknown number" they had flagged his account for suspicious activity.  I can’t help feeling that while it’s nice Chase is watching his back they went a little overboard in this case since the "suspicious activity" didn’t even involve a charge attempt on his account, just a phone call.  Better use a landline for those calls to your bank, ‘mkay?  Oh, and Chase, please stop sending those phishing attempts to me.  Thank you.
