I really need to vent today. But I promise to leave you on a happy note!
Last Friday was payday, I paid some bills, was feeling good and decided to treat myself to a long overdue pedicure after work. Life is good, paying bills, getting toes done and it is the weekend!
But when I get home my daughter tells me the bank called and I am to call them back. I do and am asked if I wrote a check in Texas for $2600.00. WHAT??? I said "Hell no". To make this long story short, somehow, someway, someone got access to my name address and checking account number and mailed a bogus check with my return address in Lodi, from New York NY, to someone in Allen Texas and that someone walked into Chase Bank in Plano Texas and tried to cash the check for $2600.00. Luckily the assistant manager thought something was wrong and the check was not cashed. She was able to get a copy of the postmarked envelope the check came in and a fingerprint of the person who tried to cash it.
After getting all my banking squared away and opening a new account I took the information the bank gave me to the Lodi Police department this morning and filed a complaint. All the information was forwarded to the Plano Texas police department and I sure hope they act on this to prevent this from happening to someone else! What a nightmare!!!! How do these criminals sleep at night, how do they get the information?? I am just perplexed and angry as well!!!! Thanks for letting me vent! I feel better! :)
Now I will finish on that happy note I promised. I still have lots of ideas for more and more Halloween/Fall crafty stuff!!!! I made the pocket folds last year and I still like them so they are on the list again this year. These are very very simple to make. The candy and the embellishments are the big hits in these.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to have no more negative venting to do for a long long time.
