This morning I received a phone call from my credit card company - someone has tried to do a transaction for $15000.00 from the credit card. They declined it

However, as they were cancelling my card, I asked for the transaction details - they came back with
Luxury Watches Inc, based in California.

I googled them - they look like a legit business....550 S Hill St, LA
so either someone has got my card details and is trying to spend up large OR this is a front, and not really a business.

Has anyone Californian peas done business with this company, or heard of this company???

Never heard of it. California is a huge state with a population of 35 million people so you might want to change your title to SoCal or Los Angeles Peas.

I'm glad your credit card company caught the charge.

My guess is they made a new card using your info on the strip. So, it could be a legit business. But usually, they try small purchases first to see if the card works and goes through, say at a gas station.

I don't know that business, but I work in the credit card industry and I can tell you that fraud happens to TONS of people, every single day. My card was used in Louisiana at a Walmart and I've never even been to Louisiana. I never lost my card, they recreate account numbers and make their own plastic.

That's downtown in the jewelry district.
$15000 would buy a lot of jewelry there
