Worst day EVER! STUPID THIEVES!!!!!!

Wednesday, December 10, 2008

Yesterday I was going over to my friend Cathees house and stopped on the way for a soda..but my debit card kept getting rejected. After four times, I didnt have any cash so I apologized and went over by the slot machines to call my bank and see what was the dealio.

They transferred me to the fraud department and said that there has been suspicious activity on my account. Apparently someone withdrew $300, then $200 dollars Monday in Receda CA. Then yesterday they did a inquiry, saw I was -250 or so and withdrew ANOTHER 300!

I only had 260 in my account. But it was 260 I had been saving since AUGUST! Im a server and lately, I am scraping by, literally. Have to work extra just to pay bills, not affording groceries, gas nothing.

I have been saving my leftover ones every night in a cherry jar above my fridge. I finally saved 300 dollars since august. I had spent forty on small things for people for christmas...and the rest is just....gone.

Who would do such a thing? The bank is going to investigate and hopefully have my money back by the end of December, but Christmas is ruined as far as my buying people gifts.

I am so lucky to have family and friends who understand. For me, Christmas shopping is my favorite thing of the year. I LOVE taking my time and finding just the right gift for each person on my list, I love to shop but never do it for myself. It is so nice to feel able to spend a bit and shop around for other people, and taking that away from me is such a crappy thing. I hope that makes sense.

I just dont get it...WHY?!

I swear when it seems things cant get worse...boy howdy they can.

    Thats horrible. There has been a lot of fraud like this going on. The scammers put in an account number and deduct a small amount like .01 and if the transaction goes throught the deduct as much as possible. I hope everything worked out !

    That sucks!! Sorry that happened.. But Im confused.. How is someone able to withdraw money out of your account if you are in possession of your debit card?? Sounds like some identity theft is going on too.. You may want to alert the authorities and credit bureaus too.. emoticon

    Ugh that is awful. I can't imagine how scary that would be to have someone take everything in a bank account and more. I hope that your bank is able to work things out and reimburse you quickly.

    I am so sorry about that. I don't really know what it's like but I do know what it's like to be broke around Christmas. Keep your chin up and hopefully your bank will resolve it.
