Question by aybaybay123123: Is a fraud alert on my credit card a false sense of security?
I am paying like a month to have a fraud alert protection through wells fargo on my credit card. Will this really protect me against someone getting a credit card in my name? I heard that theses fraud alerts are a false sense of security. Am I wasting my money? Thanks for any knowledge you might have in this area.

Yes, in my opinion you are wasting your money. Here’s why: you are only liable for the first if you lose your card and if your number is stolen and used fraudulently (as long as you report it asap). The fraud alert may notify you of suspicious activity, but it can’t stop it from happening.
