BAM!

Take that you nasty scuz buckets who hacked my credit card......Bam!  

People please, please, please routinely check your online statements.   I do.   Usually it is with a scratch of the head as I wonder how did the balance get so high.  Which is exactly what I was doing tonight as I was reviewing the holiday charges.....hmmm.....quick run down the hall to the bedroom and confirmation with Mr. Wonderful that he was not in Philly on 1/2/13 at an Italian restaurant .......looks like someone was eating good on my card starting on New Year's Eve with a pre-paid cell phone charge followed by bringing in the new year with a $300 dinner in Philly, a $217 dinner in Philly the next day, a $112 dinner a day later when they felt like Japanese, another pre-paid cell phone charge, grocery store charge and so on to the tune of $797.87.

The CSR said on two occasions a card was not even presented/swiped which makes me wonder what was  swiped at the other locations??   He was also a bit taken back when I replied "fantastic" when he informed me my cards were canceled effective immediately.    He said most customers get mad and curse him that point????  Whatever.....scuz bucket who was using my card can't anymore.   I'd love to see the look on his fact when he tries to pay for his expensive dinner tonight.  Man o' man....why can't the guys that are smart enough to do this put their brainwaves to curing cancer or fostering world peace?

Charges removed, account closed, new cards on their way!   They don't know this little old lady checks in on her accounts about every ten days!  Like I said, take that!

OK, enough excitement at my little patch of the planet.   Time for me to hang up my crime fighter's cape and do some stitching.

Ugh! What a pain!! Perhaps they got a bad stomachache from not being used to eating so well!

That is so infuriating! Sorry that happened. It almost happened to us too.

well done Boy wonder! (read that in Batman's voice LOL).

It reminded me of that episode of Friends when Monica's card is stolen and she complains that the imitation Monica has a more interesting life than her!

Right before Christmas I got an email from Walmart about the order I just placed. ???? I checked it out and I supposedly ordered a "country Christmas" CD for $8 and a $100 gift card to be sent electronically!!! Fortunately I was in time to cancel the order and change my password! So annoying. My husband checks the credit cards at least twice a week, and he has caught several things.
