I just put my Samsung S5 next to my credit cards in my wallet and the phone started to make sounds? Is my credit card at risk?

I did seem to get a notification...there was a call from New Mexico, that was a hangup...I don't know if the nfc is on or off...don't know how to check.

ok...I got it...I've turned off nfc...now I still don't know if my info has been compromised...the unknown call and hang up seem very strange...any thoughts

The unknown call could be a coincidence.

As long as you dont have any questionable apps you should be fine. 

If you are worried you can call your credit card company and monitor your statements just in case

Most wallets built to contain both credit cards and a phone would have an RF screen built in to prevent interaction between the cards and the device. It also would protect you from malicious outsiders trying to gather information from RF intelligent cards.
