I HATE horse thieves!!!!


Well what a way to make people gun shy....My husband and I were checking into an RV resort last night in Louisiana only to be told that my credit card had been denied!! :-(

Well, I know I'd purchased a few little things for the grandkids, my pony cousins etc...but I KNOW I hadn't done THAT MUCH damage!!!

After getting past my husbands evil eye looks, I called the credit card company only to find out that someone had made almost 8 thousand dollars in purchases in the last two days!!! And more were coming in as we spoke....All online, coming out of places such as Dubai, Kuwait, Barcallona etc...OMG!!!! I'm having a panic attack!!

Fortunately, they flagged our account and we will be protected, but, holy cow I hate people that can do this!!! They ought to be STRUNG UP like they did horse thieves in the olden days.

The worse part is, now we have to go back to every company who has our CC numbers and cancel, (2 days worth of phone calls), AND it makes you feel so violated you're afraid to ever use a card again..... well, maybe not ever... but it sure makes you gun shy.

  2. Ack! That's awful. Good thing it got caught so quickly, but I'm suprised your CC companies never called you when THAT much was spent! Hopefully everything will be sorted out quickly and you can continue enjoying your vacation!

  3. Yea Mama H, Actually that's a sore subject with me right now, because I called them and told them we were traveling...and "offered" WHERE we would be traveling? They said that wasn't necessary...Well, THATS why they didn't call right away. Because our account WAS tagged as traveling...:-( (Good lesson huh?) Next time, I will insist they know the general vacinity I'll be in, because I certainly wasn't in Kuwait on vacation!...LOLO

  4. Oh goodness! That is crazy!! I had my Wamu Visa call me about a year ago about a possible fraudulant charge for only $ 17.00. I had to file a report, I think the reason why they contacted me was because this company was doing this to others, and somehow it flagged the accts it was showing up on. But $8000.00? Holy crap! That's a lot of money!
    Yeah, you wouldn't be traveling in Kuwait!
    Hope it all gets cleared up for you!!

  6. Yikes, that sucks! I had a $1000 computer charged to my card once, in Canada. And, another time, I lost a different card (I think when I used it at a gas station?) and there were 3 gas station charges en route to Vegas on it. That was pretty obvious to the company and I just had to fill out fradulent forms and claim I was at work not on my way to gamble! I hope it will be sorted out soon, what a pain! I would laugh if someone took my card and tried to use it now....I have like hardly any available credit, they wouldn't get very far, lol!

  7. Maybe you should round up a posse and go round up those outlaws. I'll keep my eye out for a hangin' tree!
