Another lesson learned! I am really racking them up these days!
Here’s the scoop:
Yesterday, I logged into my bank account and I noticed a couple of charges for $1.00 each. I did not recognize the places of business and knew immediately that they did not belong to me.
I called my “financial institution” and they told me that it was all good and “no worries”. Then I got off work early to go and pick up a new debit card. I thought that would be the end of it.
Today I logged into my account and the $1.00 charges had dropped off, but now I had a charge for $100.00 and one for $47.00 that actually went through! I WAS LIVID!
I called the bank and asked them why they let them go through! If those charges would have been one cent bigger it would have wiped me out! How dangerous is that?
They informed me that they had already gone through as of the time I called yesterday. Why didn’t they tell me that yesterday!?!
OMG, banks! Really?
I have decided that I am going to get a new debit card every six months whether I need to or not. I use my card every.single.day.
Oh and on another note. Today is Microsoft Patch Tuesday, so make sure you download your updates!
