i talked to the sheriff in florida today
we'd only been home 5 days
when i took my girlfriend out for lunch and my credit/debit card was declined.
i called my bank immediately and they had put a hold on it, due to a possible transaction in north carolina, at a walmart.
obviously not my transaction. thank you my wonderful bank, for watching my back.
we just found out yesterday that there was a credit card scam right in the area we stayed. someone was skimming, they believe, then selling the numbers and making cards.
almost all the bad "you scum butts for trying to steal from me" transactions were made at walmarts all over florida. i also found out today that along with north carolina, they had tried to use my number again in a florida walmart. thank god it was denied.
we were told to contact the sheriff and file a report, which didn't pertain to us, as we hadn't lost any money, but they did want to know where we had shopped while we were down there.
they have it narrowed down now to three locations where they believe the skimming took place.
one of them is one of our favorite places to eat. so sad.
now this is where i thank target.
after my second transaction at the target in panama city while we were in florida, they called wanting to confirm that i had my target card in my possession and that the current charges were mine.
again, my back was being watched.
wow, that makes me feel good.
today there are no long sleeves to be found. instead we're setting records like many of you.
forecasted today is a high of 78. sweet.
the convertibles are everywhere. flip flops are on. gardens are being tended to.
grills are being fired up. kids are running wild.
best of all, people are amazingly happy.
in case you need one
this bud's for you
happy wednesday everyone
