VIOLATED

I feel totally violated. I noticed a "pay pal" debit was made from our bank account this morning that I thought to be a little weird. So I asked Dan about it and sure enough he promised me it wasn't him. So after some good investigation on Dan's part we were able to get in touch with some extremely helpful people. And much to our surprise it was indeed FRAUD. The lady we spoke to said she has seen this before and it usually doesn't stop with just one transaction. So I guess you could say we are lucky to have caught it early.

Some jerk got a hold of my debit card number and purchased something nice for themselves. Hopefully it is all being taken care of and nothing comes out of my pocket, but I can't even explain the creepy feeling this brings with it. I feel sick to my stomach. I have always been one of those people who was irritated by things like this but never thought it could happen to me. Well, newsflash, it can and it did. Some people disgust me!

The lady I spoke to said unfortunately there are many ways this can happen and they cannot pin point it exactly. Super freaky eh?

That is so scary! I worry about that kind of thing, but my all my worries don't stop me from buying things. Maybe I should be more cautious. I can understand the feeling violated part though, that is how I felt when Tom's truck got broken into, and the stereo was stolen.

I am so sorry! That is such a horrible feeling. We had that happen with a credit card once and it was such a horrible feeling!

Ick. I've had this happen to us, as well. Actually, several times - (note to self, be more careful) anyway...I'm sorry it happened to you. Just bugs. I don't know why some people feel so entitled!

That is so scary! I am so glad that you caught it so fast! That makes me want to keep my eye even more closely on our money!

If you want to count your blessings, check out my sister Tara's blog. I think I have it titled 'Andrew and Tara' on my links. Ugh. Thieves are the worst kind of people.
