Was just checking my credit card account and had logged out. The credit card window was still up and I was about to close it (had not yet ckicked close so the credit card company's domain name was still in the address window) when an IP address appeared in the address window, the credit card window closed and a blank window replaced it and the browser appeared to be searching for the IP address. I wrote down the IP address which had a forward slash and "credit_card" after the numbers. Nothing seemed to be coming up ... it was searching, so I clicked stop. I then went to "Whois - IP Address - Domain Name Lookup" and the Domain Name for the IP address is Optus Communications. My ISP is Optus. Would greatly appreciate if someone could advise me if this is something I ought to be concerned about or am I just being paranoid?

Your not parinoid if they are out to get you. :whistling: More than likely it's just a loop back from releasing the secured connection. I wouldn't worry but I would monitor for any activity out of the ordinary on the card or if the company offers it, Email notification of card usage.
