Reports made

Having your credit info stolen is a big pain in the butt. Spent the morning at the police station, the bank and trying to do it all without being too late to work.

No help for it as my bank doesn't open until 9 a.m. Totally bankers hours. The police station visit was a breeze, the woman behind the glass took my info, Zeroxed it and told me the report would be ready in 7 to 10 days. The bank didn't turn me down this time...since they already turned me down to do a fraud report on Saturday I took a different route. I told her I wanted to dispute the charge because it wasn't my charge. I told her the story, including how I knew it was older than 60 days but my rationale was if someone embezzled money from them 6 months ago but they only found out on Sat. would they only go after that person for the last 60 days of theft? And since this was an airline ticket it should be easy to find out exactly who sat in that seat. It probably helped that I had a police report number.

She agreed and I filled out the fraud reports. She notarized it and off I went to work.

I am crossing all my body parts that I get my money back...if and when I do I'll be so happy I could do a happy dance. Wish me luck that the agencies that should help me works hard to get my money back into my account!
