I will say it again: I have the best friends ever….ty Pat Grau for everything today you are the best! So people we had a plan, we got the laundry in the washers and headed for the grocery store but after shopping my bank card would not work???? Curious since M.S. had sent money that more than covered it…so we went to an ATM and again it said””” card declined, not “transaction declined but “”card declined” so off to the bank we went…to be told that “someone” had tried to use my numbers to make a deposit to an online gaming site in the amount of $230 on Oct 30th which was immediately flagged as suspicious and so my account was made deposit only from that point on, they did try to call me to no avail as to my chagrin I had not updated my telephone number with them. (In case you don’t know any deposits to online gaming sites can be withdrawn to any account so losers can win temporarily this way.) So thus the problem, I had to call the fraud protection line which took over 1/2 an hr to get through on and after giving them all but my first-born they cancelled my card and told me to go to the bank to get a new one issued, which we did and changed the pin number to boot. So apparently my ex was not done trying to rip me off, you see he is the only one who shared my bank account and pin as the FRO would garnish anything he made and so he knew my numbers. He also knew when my pension check went in the bank. Well nice try asshole, they will trace whatever e-mail you used and hopefully you will get done for attempted fraud. In the meantime I am safe and secure knowing my bank is so on the ball and I lost nothing. So once again John Harold Vanderwal loses, but kudos to him for waiting six months to try this bs.
I am feeling very victorious after the day because we not only got 4 loads of laundry and shopping done but the empties returned and a dozen water bottles filled and got all the paperwork sent ready to start the new job Monday…We even treated ourselves to a couple with friends to soothe our tired soles 😉
Once again loving life and feeling tired but fine, 🙂
I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR PAT GRAU, WHO ELSE WOULD SO CALMLY PUT UP WITH MY TYPICAL “MURPHY’S LAW” LIFE….LOVE YOU GIRL !!!
