Dodgy Buggers!

Glenn and I got ripped off! Some dodgy bugger got hold of a VISA card that glenn cancelled in 2004 and pulled out of our most beloved bank account 270 buckaroonies! Apparently there is some legacy infrastructure out there that allows cancelled cards to be processed! We cottoned on when we started to see transactions for Australian cabs and Tullamarine parking! Geographically impossible.. DUUHH! After nearly 2 hours on the phone to the bank (reverse charges thankfully!) the bad news is that account is off limits for around 2 weeks. The good news is we get the money back! YAAA!!! Forced savings I say! :). One question I asked was if the card is cancelled how can they stop it? its not as if they can doublely block it??? Well apparently they can! There is a complete block (a super dooper block), or something similar. My next question... Why dont they just do that in the first place!!!
Anywho, the job market has looked a lot more attractive this week!! but I wont say anymore incase they all fall through again! It will be heaps better if I just log on one day and say "oh by the by I have a job, no big deal" hehehe! It will be champers all round! :)

I hope everyone is well! Big hugs and kisses to everyone! xoxoxo


  1. that is dodgey :)
    glad to hear you'll get the money back tho'
    and hope to see good news on the employment front soon too :)

    i also think we are the only ones looking at this blog lately :)

  2. I check it every day. I just haven't had much worth talking about :)

  3. I check it about once a day (usually on my lunch break... hehehe) but I have even less than Damien to talk about :)

    Good to hear you're getting that money back! and I agree... it's a little weird that they don't totally cancel it straight away... I guess it makes their job a little more fun if they get to bust some dude for spending your cash! :)

  4. ok...i don't have anything new either...so i leave comments so people know i've looked :)
