Fraud Refund Came Through

I got my $49.72 paid back to me from the dodgy taxi driver that used my stolen credit card to charge me small amounts two months in a row.

The money is being snowflaked straight onto one of my cards to boost my debt elimination efforts for the month. It’s shaping up to be a good month so far debt

Yay for snowflake flurries, for actually reviewing my statements, raising the issues and following it through to resolution with the bank.

They were pretty good with the whole thing; it was only one phone call, then sending in a form as a statutory declaration that I didn’t incur the charges.

I can’t emphasise enough how important it is to not only open all your monthly statements, but to check them for any unusual transactions, and to investigate them with your bank as soon as possible.

    It is important to really look at your monthly statements...good tip :)

  2. I'm glad to hear that all of the money was refunded! That's so crappy! It just goes to show that you can't trust any one any more!

  3. Actually, it was your post about this that inspired me to call on my rebate check! I think I had better modify my post and give you credit!
