In a stunning display of not-actually-irony

I went to check my bank account at lunch and discovered that on Saturday two lots of £15 had been used to buy pre-pay mobile credit from O2.

As I have no O2 phone (or other related device), this was somewhat surprising.

I spent 10 minutes on the phone to the bank, sorting it out. They're passing details onto the fraud team, and have cancelled my card (new one with me in the next five days). And only momentarily tried to sell me a loan.

No idea how it happened - currently assuming that someone got my card details from an insecure website. Not hugely worried about it either, just glad that I checked the recent items on my statement (online banking FTW).
