I just had my Wells Fargo Visa replaced because someone in South Africa charged a $7 video on the card, no notification was sent due to the low amount, I just noticed it in my online account which I check religiously, so I disputed it, and they canceled the card, sent me a new card within a week. I've had it happen before, usually for small "test" amounts, I think this is the third Wells card replacement I've had, never any money lost, but still a nuisance, but the cash back rewards they pay are well worth it, I pay several monthly bills with it as wells as any big purchases, then just pay it off the same month, much safer than using my debit card on my bank account, last month I got $75 in rewards due to paying for my new mower with the card, usually only get about $25 every month or two. Wells Fargo has been pretty on the spot concerning questionable larger purchases made on the card, I bought my wife a baseball size Swarovski crystal from a dealer in the UK, next day Wells called to confirm I made the purchase, it was way more than $7 tho!
