We need buffalo meat in our house. Since we don't shop at Whole Foods anymore, it's become hard to find. The stores we tend to shop at don't sell it. So I went to order some online today...
...and promptly had my Amex card declined. So I used my Visa instead, and then went to my Amex account to see what was up. Apparently, it was on hold due to possible fraud.
Some asshole had charged something to the card in a nightclub in New York, and tickets had been purchased for a train line in Europe.
No...not charges that I've made, thanks! So they're taking care of it, and cancelling my old card and sending a new one out right away. Awesome.
Is it coincidental that this happened a few days after my email was hacked on my home computer? The home computer where our house guest took it upon themself to download a new search engine without permission, and for no apparent good reason?
Yeah, someone isn't getting invited back anytime soon, dammit. GRRRR!!!
