GRRR

Could life get any more annoying right now? First annoyance: We noticed that we weren't getting any mail delivered. Not even a piece of junk mail for over a week. I called yesterday, and someone had gone online and put a hold on our mail for a month. Thanks a heap. Then this morning, Ticketmaster calls and says that someone fraudulently charged NY Knicks tickets to our credit card. Fantastic. Maybe tomorrow someone could slash my tires.

1 yeah - I am thinking the first thing means that the second thing is just the first of many. That sounds awful really. Not the best start to block leave I guess but at least you'll have an ear for the venting I guess ;-)

2 I can't imagine any reason someone would block your mail other than - an accident (typing the wrong digit in their address?) - malice (mail-ice?) Glad Ticketmaster caught the ticket charge before it ended up on your bill. Maybe tomorrow someone could slash my tires. If they spraypaint a giant "O" on your car, you'll know why.

3 AFG had to investigate a couple like this - check all the cards AND YOUR BANK ACCOUNTS and keep hot eyes on them. Inform the card companies that the info may have been stolen - they'll put a special fraud watch on for you. They stop the mail because they don't want you to get your statements yet. I had my identity stolen once - it sucked. AFG had his government card number stolen once, and we got to prove that he had never been to Portugal to charge 6 grand in the duty free shop. I hate freeloaders.

4 Wow - that's some nastily scheming identity theft... glad Ticketmaster called, at least. When our CC# was stolen, we found out b/c USAA had denied a relatively routine charge *by us* after detecting a fraud pattern *not by us* and then called us immediately. After that, I was so paranoid that I called *them* back to make sure they were the ones who had just called us, LOL. (I kept tabs on the account, just not multiple times a day.) In our case, the @$@%@#$ had charged some stuff at like, florists and singles' websites... just stupid junk. But WOW - to put a hold on your *mail*, too?!?! Yikes! Hope you're able to get things back in financial/identity order soon!!!
