I stopped by the gas station on my way to Subway on my lunch break to throw a few dollars in my gas tank. My card was denied at the pumps several times, so I went inside and it was declined again.
I called the bank just to verify my balance, because when I left the house I had plenty of money in there. (I check my account every day) It came back with
"You total available balance is -$695.53"
I about died! I hit 0 to be connected to customer service to find out why my account is almost $700 negative!
When the rep came on the line, she started going over the charges with me, and I didn't make any of them! My account was hijacked! All total, before they were able to block the card, there was almost $700 charged - after they blocked the card, I got more emails alerting me to more fraud! All total, someone tried to charge over $2000 to my bank account.
Lucky my bank is being really good about it, and are making things right. Also lucky for me I have a stash of cash since my bank account is pretty much frozen.
In other news... I got home last night and there was a note on the inside door - "Leave the door unlocked - Buck and crew are coming to do the well"
I was woken up this morning to a construction crew jack hammering the concrete floor in the garage under my house. That was at 7:30 - I went to bed around 6:30. Lucky for me, I found a pair of ear plugs and went back to bed. I was able to sleep a few more hours.
I think that is all for now
