Fraud!

23 Jan

This morning we had an email from the bank, questioning two recent transactions on our credit card. One was from the restaurant where we had dinner yesterday, but the other was from this morning, for an exorbitant amount at a predatory big box store we generally avoid.

The Squire called the bank, and they have honored the one and then cancelled the card.

Oops!

They told us there were several other charges outstanding, and they would void those, but The Squire didn’t ask what they were or which stores were involved. He also didn’t realize that cancelling the card meant we couldn’t download our transactions and pay the bill.

Oh, dear!
