CREDIT WAS TAKEN
Our Christmas was more than a little interesting, here. Apparently someone, with nothing better to do, had some fun at our expense. They hacked our credit/debit card information and used it to buy plane tickets, for almost a THOUSAND dollars on Christmas Eve, somewhere in Georgia. That is far away from where we live and play. The security at the bank called to tell us about the suspicious activity. They wanted to know if we authorized the transaction. We said, "NOPE." Now our card and online banking information is blocked, so they can’t use it again. In the meantime neither can we. Because of the holiday falling on Sunday, the bank will be closed on Monday. So we can't access our account information until Tuesday. The bank is going to issue us a new card after then. It should be here within the next week. The headaches this causes are enormous. We have zillions of accounts that get paid with that card. All of them must be switched over to the new card number when it arrives. Plus any Christmas presents that need to go back will be in limbo if purchased on the hacked card before it happened. One BIG mess. UNBELIEVABLE. Oh well. Que Sera Sera. My husband is unemployed. He needs a pacemaker. I need two new knees. We didn't need someone stealing our money, at Christmas. It put a real damper on the festivities. I hope they catch the bad guys who did this.
