Ok maybe a bit rash.
My debit card has been compromised.
Yep some fucker, some how got my bank card info AND HAS BEEN SHOPPING ONLINE!!!
And the scary thing? They have my address too.
Oh and my bank card? Yep sitting nestled in my wallet!!!!
Yep they got online set up a fake paypal account with my address and bank card information and ORDERED PHOTOGRAPHY EQUIPMENT!
I am one of those crazy people who checks my account about 3 times a day. Maybe in hopes that a million dollars will soon appear? Maybe I am just strange?
Anyways, when I logged in last night my account BALANCE WAS IN RED!! I may have blushed a little because I have NEVER seen that... And then I went in to see what overdrew my account?
Yeah PISSED OFF is not the right way to say the way I was feeling. I called the bank, they said because the transactions were pending they could not do anything I had to call the vendor.
So I call paypal they "freeze" the false account set up in my name and are in the process of sending me information to sigh and send back, and affidavit declaring I did not make this purchase.
And now I have to wait 7-10 days for a new bank card. What a mess!! They said at this time of year they have no idea how these criminals get all this information but its really scary they had a different mailing address then billing address (which was not mine) but paypal will not give me the information....
Ugg SO FRUSTRATING!! Has this happened to anyone else?
