20 days of my life
i’ve been had!

2000.12.21






   i discovered a surprise purchase yesterday, and had to cancel my MasterCard. on December 9th, someone tried to register for teenyearbook.com (snigger) with my account information. (hey, i download only the free porn!)
   the plastic card is still in my wallet, so i need to determine if the security breach originated with one of the vendors i've patronized, or a lost restaurant receipt. fortunately, i have archived all my receipts back to 1994, so i have a short list of possibilities to consider.
   my homework reveals that the third party billing company, “the leader in eTransactions,” had actually identified the fraud before i did, and had even issued a stop payment plus initiated a credit before my telephone call to them. keen. however the $25 charge is still on my account and will remain until the credit passes in "a week to 10 days." this seems to be a popular answer; my bank says it'll take that long to get me a new MasterCard.
   fighting for faster response was not worth my time here, so now i get to leave home without it. this holiday season i must ride over the river and through the woods on travellers cheques and cash. yay.
