Once again, sweet Friday rolls around. Today - after I write my words for the day - I'm hitting the grocery store to buy my Thanksgiving meal. That's always a long, convoluted ordeal, but strangely pleasurable too.
And this week, I learned someone got a hold of one of my credit cards and ordered themselves a laptop from Best Buy! On Tuesday, I went into that CC account online to check my balance and saw a pending purchase from Monday for $503.74 at Best Buy. Since I didn't make that purchase - hadn't even been near a Best Buy even online - I immediately called Discover and alerted them. We cancelled my account and they issued me a new card.
Last night, UPS rang my doorbell with - you guessed it - the new laptop. It appears the dumbasses who ordered it didn't have it shipped to them. I called Discover who told me to call Best Buy. Best Buy is sending me a prepaid label to ship it back to them. They did give me a phone number for the person who ordered it. It's in El Paso, TX, but I did a reverse phone lookup and it appears it's not a valid number.
Either way, in the middle of all this with my mom, and my dad moving here, and my foot, and my husband having eye surgery, and my puppy having food intolerance issues, some idiot tries to steal my credit card. I'm pissed. I hope the fraud unit at Discover catches them and they're charged with theft.
Rant over. Now I need more coffee and to get writing.
