Well, I was working from home a little tonight and I got this call on my cell from 205 area code. Didn't pay a whole lot of attention as I didn't
recognize the number. I usually will let it go to voicemail if I am working.
About a minute or so later an email comes through from my bank at debit card monitoring.com. The email gives me the usual jargon of odd activity
doesn't match my habits, etc.
I wasn't too awfully worried as I can have some odd spending habits (I suppose to some) at times...
Anyway, I call the number on the email and the rep tells me that someone attempted a purchase online at walmart.com.
Needless to say, my card had been stopped and the purchase denied. They are sending out a new card.
It is a little scary. I mean not now as the card is cancelled but, it really could have been worse! What the heck was someone trying to buy and the
worst part is, I will never know who...
It could have been someone overseas or someone in my town...someone at work!
I truly can count on one hand the places I do/have used my card online. All were secure sites or so I thought (naively). I never save that info on any
I work my buns off and someone else could have gotten a new anything on my dime...just pisses me off!
I even thought back to all of the stores I had been to lately...
The S.O has a debit and credit cards so of course I tell him he better watch out more carefully than even before...
I'm glad I have the bank I do though...so it ends on a happy note...still unnerving...still feel violated and just stupid!
