Update on the bank card fraud

August 26, 2006 @ 16:55 By: gordon Category: Current affairs, General

As you probably read a few days ago, my bank card was skimmed. My bank made the necessary arrangements so that I could access my money while they completed their investigation, which was very much appreciated. I had a call on Friday from the security officer at the bank that she’d submitted her recommendation to her management that they absorb the fraud, so now my balances reflect reality. She also said that she was working on this very late Thursday evening and something made her go dig through her database of frauds and lo and behold she found another one from a while back that was a very similar pattern of transactions. One of the odd things about my incident is that it wasn’t part of a larger bunch of fraudulent transactions, so that made it harder to figure out what happened.

Hopefully, now that she has two seemingly similar incidents, she’ll be able to find a common link somewhere and the police will be able to arrest them and extract vengence.

    the cops can’t extract vengenace anymore, they had their rubber hoses taken away. Makes you want to go buy them some, doesn’t it?
