Stolen debit card!

So I woke up this morning and checked my bank account. It was in the red, and I'm all like "WTF Where did my $2400 go?" So I looked for my card. It was gone. And there were all these charges for jewelery, and for Wal-Mart.

So I did what any self-respecting person would do. I cried and called my mommy. I went down to the police station and filed a report. The officer was REALLY courteous. But then she's all like, "If you don't hear from the detective in a week, call us." Huh? A week? That's too long. So I called Wal-Mart, where some of the goods were purchased, and spoke with Nick, the ASM. Brought up that card had "See ID" written on the back, and clearly, no one did. He said that they would retrain all of their employees, he was so very sorry, and would review the tapes to find out who did it.  He called me back an hour later, told me that the security people had reviewed the tapes and would make me a DVD with the perps on it. It was two african american males, a white male, and a heavyset african american female. Oh, and a red car, they got that too. I decide Nick is full of win.

I then call up a website where some jewelery was charged. The nice man who answered the phone provided me with a house shipping address, and a billing address, in addition to a name where the goods were to be shipped. I thanked him, and pulled up the addresses on Google maps. In front of one of the houses sat the same car Nick had described to me on the tapes. We have a winner.

So tomorrow, I am picking up the DVD and dropping the address off to the police. I fully expect to hear that arrests will be made tomorrow, but maybe that's too optimistic.

You're welcome, Troy PD. Now just cuff those scummers and get em off the street!


I'm really surprised the company gave you an address. My friend had a problem with her card and the company could only tell her what state the goods went to.

So much of this was luck, it's not even funny. I was expecting the vendor to give me a VERY hard time, but they were fab.
