I had the oddest call the other day. Some nice lady called me to ask me about my charge card. Had I been shopping that morning?
Did I buy a hundred bucks worth of perfume?
Um, never in my life.
Did I spend a couple hundred at a jewelry store?
No, but I wish! Hey Hubby, did you buy me any presents today? Hm, no.
How about four hundred at a lingerie store-
Stop right there, Uh, you got the wrong lady!
Someone stole my credit card number, and they were out in the world having a great time with it. A far better time than I have ever had with it for sure.
I was so grateful a they noticed the odd spending pattern in the same day it started. They were able to take steps to cancel my card immediately.
Apparently my cheap ways made it easy to spot the change quickly and efficiently. So at least there's good news.
