Sometime during lunch Helaine dropped her credit card. She didn’t know it was missing until she got a text from Chase.
While she was reading the text I was looking at an email. Chase was pulling out all the stops. They wanted answers. They were in a hurry!
Hello Mr Geoff Fox, please respond immediately
Are you kidding? $3121.50! They didn’t want to turn down a legit purchase this size. My call really was important to them.
I can’t be sure, but the initials GCA appear on the fraud notice and the ATM’s at the hotel we were visiting. It’s likely whomever found the card tried to get $3,000 (plus fees) in cash.
Why? Because Las Vegas!
Diogenes wouldn’t have liked it here.
By the time Helaine got Chase on the phone more purchases had been denied. In one store the crooks were asked for ID, then said they didn’t have it with them.
There was a time merchants would be told to hold onto the card. They don’t that anymore. Too dangerous in the 21st Century.
The bank has limited their exposure by freezing the account. Chase 1 Crooks 0.
Meanwhile, the Foxes are minus the card while away from home. And, of course, we will have to inform everyone AGAIN!!!
