Apparent Theft

As if I don't have enough problems already, today I get a letter in the mail from a "MyPaySystems" reminding me of a $49.95 charge made with my credit card to a "Dating Playground.com" on the 3rd of this month. Thing is, I have never heard of either company. Apparently somehow, someone has my credit card number. I tried calling the phone number to the dating thing first, no answer. Then called my credit card company, and filed a charge dispute. After that, I called the number of the "MyPaySystems" company and let them know I never made the charge. They said there should be a charge back to my card within 10 days, if not, to call them back. Also found out the dating thing is based in the UK. If any more mysterious charges appear, I'm going to have the card company issue me a new number.
