I called Citi bank. Froze my account, canceled my debt card. I'll get a new debt card in 10 business days, and I'll have to file a charge dispute for the amount taken from my account.
I really didn't need all this hassle right now... I can pull cash from a branch store. I'm thinking of pulling all but $100 from each of my accounts at Citi, and putting them into my other accounts at different banks so at least I'll have money to spend instead of waiting with my hands tied.
All and all, I think it will take about 1 month before I'll see disputed charges reimbursed.
this is why I do not use a Debit Card for anything but accessing my bank's ATMs. I have a couple credit cards that get used all the time and I don't care if they get hacked, it's the CCC's money in play, not mine.
