Well, as I am sure that you all know, some 40 million credit card numbers were misplaced by the renowned Target (pronounced Tar - zhay) Company.
On this glorious Christmas Eve, someone in Chicago, of all places, is using my wife's debit card at Target believe it or not. My bank, not BoA, Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, Bancorp, HSBC, or Capital One, (notice I listed the 7 biggest banks in America) a place in which I have never set foot inside a branch in my life, called and asked....we have seen charges in the town where you live today, but suddenly this charge shows up in Illinois. Is one of your kids or your wife there?
ok, well we are going to put a hold on your account, do you need to do any more shopping today?
Will you be making any online purchase or any purchases outside of your city of residence.
Ok, we will approve all charges where you live, but deny all else and refund the charge that is already made.
Have a Merry Christmas Mr. alan
I love my bank!!! Now I just hope that the SOB that is using my wife's card to fund their Christmas tries it one more time. I get the feeling that Target is not happy about it and will probably press charges. At least I hope they do.
And Merry Christmas to all of you my friends. I hope each of you gets all of the ammo and other supplies that Santa was asked for.
