What I've done This Week

Sounds like a school book report right?

Well buckle your skinny belts because this is going to be riveting.

I've done approximately two things this week

and that would be

Work 10.5 hour days

and sit on the phone with my debit card and credit card companies because

my debit card got hacked and just two days later my credit card got hacked #facepalm

oh and here's a fun nugget....after I closed my card - FIVE more transactions tried to go through - one for $800. I'd lower my expectations Mr. Hacker. I am no Don-Don Trump
File:Donald Trump announcing latest David Blaine feat 3-alt.jpg

All I have to say is that I hope you step in dog poo in your new $300 tennis shoes Mr. Ireland Hacker.

And Latrice time you want to buy a plane ticket, please use your own credit card.
(However, I do appreciate you flying coach and not springing for first class.)

On the upside I've discoverd that one can live off of cheese sticks and greek yogurt for a week

I can ration a 1/4 tank of gas extremely well

My body can function without its red bull

and "Necessities" really do mean things like toilet paper and toothpaste....not Starbucks and frozen yogurt

But I'm not going to mailbox should hold two shiny new cards today and the Super Target is SO calling my name.

Wishing you all Happy Fridays and a hacker-free life

I just can't believe this happened to you. This is one of my worst fears. Sadly, if I ever DO get hacked...their up "sheets" creek without a paddle because they will only be able to get them a tank of gas and they they be screwed hahahaha.

I'm glad they are getting is resolved, but is this guys real name? Are they going to be able to catch him?

Love you girl!

Suzie Q said...

OH NO!!! I'm sorry you had to go through that! I do hope Mr. Bank gives you the $$ back! I had it happen to me once, I was in the Bahamas.... luckily I was on a boat for a week and had no idea. Unluckily... I was on a boat for a week and had no idea.

Best of luck!

That happened to me in June!! First my credit card was hacked and used at a Kmart in Bensalem, PA. Turns out they then tried to use it at walmart but was declined. Thank you Chase for catching that one!! I disn't know Kmart still exacted other than in beaufort! :)

Then wachovia called four days later and said they had information saying my debit card could be "compromised"?!? Am I watching episode of Alias or something?? Sorry to hear you're going through the same thing :(

If you lived in AZ, or I lived in Atl, (I rather live in Atl tho!) you could totally borrow my bangles. I have boxes, boxes, BOXES filled with bangles, legit. I blame it on me being Southeast Asian. & the nailpolish, the base color China Glaze 'For Audrey', I think its old, I got it from my local nailshop, & the glitter fun, OPI 'Rainbow Connection' from The Muppets holiday collection, its new, you can find the glitter one out now, & the amazing other glitter polishes from the collection...In the words of Rachel, "I die!"...I had blog post about them.
