Monitor your bank accounts...

I am normally pretty OCD about monitoring my bank account online. Unfortunately, I'd been a little lax the last couple of weeks. When I checked my account yesterday, I noticed that there had been a $287.01 debit from Sprint last week. The problem? Not the size of the debit but the fact that Sprint is not my local, long distance, or cellular carrier! So... I called my bank - only to be told that I have to come in to fill-out an affidavit disputing the charge. I have no idea how long it will take to get my money back. So, the moral of the story? Monitor your accounts. I have no idea how someone got my account information. It really can happen to anyone. Afterall, I didn't think that it would ever happen to me, either.

  1. You know I definitely know what you mean. I have been a little OCD about using my debit card lately. I now use cash whenever possible. Mean people really suck!
