Credit Card Fraud



Someone used my credit card at Tescos for £150 last week:(
It is a rarely used card, and the Tesco is not my local one (but same county).

The bank has cancelled the card and is going to refund me in full.

What I don't understand is how they got my card number and PINconfused2
And how did the bank know it is a real fraud?
And why did the thief only use it once?

The physical card hasn't been stolen, and hasn't been used for a while.
Amazon and few other sites may have my card details, but not PIN.

I went onto my online banking and found the suspicious Tescos transaction.
It is not my usual credit card, so the transaction stood out:(
