The topic: Gosh darn credit thieves.
I just checked my credit card statement online. Now, last week I found a bogus charge of $349.00 for regsoft.com. I order stuff that uses them, but I didn't order anything for that amount. I call the company to find out for sure (hey, when you get older, you start to forget stuff). I guess I ordered a developer tool for VB. I did? Nope, I surely didn't
So, I got the credit. Since then I keep checking the new charges. There was one I saw today for $29.95 from ccbill.com. I go to that site. They collect payments for entertainment sites. Read that "porn". I didn't see it last month (I guess that $349.00 kind of caught my attention and I missed this other one). The guy on the phone called my attention to it. It's for a subscription to an Asian porn site. Okay. Can you please give me a credit? "No, you've received the service." (See the name on it is mine, the address is mine, but the email address is not. It's close, but it's not...and I can't find a website with that name on it.) So, I told him I'd call my credit card company and put in a dispute on those charges. He said that's what I have to do. So, I did. And I also cancelled that card.
It's a Citibank card. I guess it's so common now, that there was no problem getting the account closed and new cards for a new account are being overnighted to us (which will get her Monday). I asked if he wanted the email address the other guy gave me and he said "no, we don't need it".
What a pain in the butt.
