Some advice (OT)

Monitor your accounts! I was checking my bank account on my phone while DD was in dance class to see 2 transactions that I didnt remember making so I called to inquire a little more and sure enough - while I live in CA, my debit card was used in NY this morning at a gas station - I had to cancel my card, and while I will get refunded it wont be for 3-5 days until it officially posts (as its pending now). I am glad that I caught it before they went on some shopping spree or something the only bad thing is bc I have a bank that doesnt have a local location so to speak, I pretty much rely on my card and so I have to wait for the new one. I do have credit monitoring bc I know people use other folks info to obtain cards/credit but never thought about my debit card. Its not even like I shop online or anything, well I guess I have a few times but still didnt think much of it, initially I thought maybe I just didnt remember buying something - glad I called.

Oh man, how scary! It's such an invasion of privacy to have something like that happen. This is good to know. Sorry you had to deal with this.

Sadly it's so easy to get access to people's information these days. Believe it or not when you deal with people's information and try to protect it - they get angry and treat you like you are giving them a hassle for nothing. Sad
