Bank Of America


So, I come to find out that somebody in the Great State (allegedly) of Texas has gotten a hold of my bank account number and charged up almost $1000 in gas in different cities in the state!

I spend Saturday running up all kinds of Skype minutes trying to get this resolved, the only problem is, I brought only $70 cash over with me. I use my card for every transaction and I wasn't expecting an event like this to happen. You know when fraudulent activity happens, they shut your entire card down, so I was thinking what am I going to do from now until late September when I get back States side? But being the wonderful bank they are, they rushed me another bank card over to my hotel room in Stockholm, so now I have action. I didn't even know they could do that, plus as you know we travel so often, I was scared that I would be gone to London by the time my card arrived in Stockholm. Everything worked its self out and I'm really thankful to the people who dealt with me on the phone for several hours Saturday.

David, that is wild! I pray they find the sorry, selfish person who did it. You know its just something thats trying to distract with you and get you unfocused.
