FICO plummeted due to hacked card
My BOFA card was hacked last month. It was immediately reported and shut down on the second transaction. A new card was issued and was compromised before I ever received it. I've now had 3 different accounts in less than 45 days.

What can I do to get this cleaned up? I was in the early stages of doing a refi, now its going to effect the rate I can get.

Also, what is the likelihood this was orchestrated by a BOFA employee? I find it odd that a card that technically didn't even exist was immediately hacked.
