    The other day I got a call from my "CHEVRON" gas-card provider to see if I had charged up $750 in one day at 2 gas-station locations in L.A. County - 6 transactions, each one for $125 (takes about & $90 to fill my 30 gallon gas tank).
    Yesterday I got a call from my bank to tell me that my ATM card had been "compromised", and they would have to lock my accounts until Tuesday - Thank God I had just returned from the bank, getting paychecks cash etc. for me to pay my bills & my guys etc.

    Can't understand how this has happened - My gas card & ATM cards are with me at ALL times, and I only ever use the ATM card INSIDE the bank, at the teller's window!
    VERY effing pissed right now....I am gonna effin kill those tw@ts if I get my hands on them!!

    :evil: :evil:
  2. Oh hell, that's really cr*p! :evil:
    We live an an age where it just doesn't seem to pay to be an honest and upright person :(
    What annoys me is how difficult banks here make it, trying to prove your own identity to access your own money :eek: My bank froze my account when I tried to use my own money to pay for my new bike...it took me a week of trips to my branch, my passport, utility bills, wage slips, and my employment contract before they would release my money. Fair enough you might say, they are protecting me, but I was made to feel like a criminal :roll: and only a few months before, my bloke had £500 taken from his account, as a card purchase on the internet...the card was in his wallet at the time!!!!
    Hope it gets sorted soon for you :cry:
    I firmly believe that what goes around comes around...so those people who stole from you will get what they deserve :evil:

    I have had my paypal account fleeced through ebay by £700 a few months ago :x well fooking mad, and trying to sort it out was even worse, it always amazes me how these scumbag arseholes of the world get your details, it really makes you think about banking on line and how unsafe it is despite having good passwords they are still able to get passed all the security, but I'm with you Daz........if I could get my hands on the sh*ts :twisted:

    I had my Barclaycard intercepted in the post some years ago when I lived in Amsterdam, came to light when I went to pay for a flight back to blighty.
    They racked up just over £2500 in a few days and the replacement cards still arrive by ordinary post instead of recorded delivery - it’s not surprising that it still goes on and some of the blame lies at the banks doorstep…

    Ah! - Glad I got that sorted!! - Apparently the ATM at my bank had been "compromised", someone had put a cardreader into the ATM or sommit, so I'm OK...& Chevron are 'fessing up that they were at fault for authorizing the 6 fraudulent transactions...What a relief!!

    V. Happy now! :D
  6. Always good to hear a happy ending :D
    Pity you have to go through so much cr*p to get back to normal :roll:
    Whoever is responsible will get what's coming...one of my firm beliefs in life :smileup:

    I'm glad it turned out ok this time for you, but after my Dad got shafted with this sh*tty crime 4 yrs ago in Specsavers of all places ???? ( jokes on a plain postcard please) I have been ultra careful with my personal mail and details.
    But I guess if they want to badly enough there are ways..

    Moonwitch, fwiw the whole "karma" thing works out in the end most of the time in my experience. The bad guys don't win, - given enough time; and good deeds nearly always bring something good back to you. :smileup:

    PayPal Email Addresses
    Avoid using PayPal's automated email submission center — that email goes straight to New Delhi, India where you will get a prompt reply back that has nothing to do with what you asked in the first place. For faster results, email the following departments (where people with decision making authority can help you or not help you):
    moldenburg@paypal.com (Michael Moldenburg, Paypal Complaints)
    sthompson@paypal.com (Scott Thompson, PayPal President)
    mhentges@paypal.com (Mary Hentges, CFO PayPal)
    crme@paypal.com (PayPal Office of Executive Escalations)
    service@paypal.com (Unmonitored)
    press@paypal.com (Let public relations know you are filing complaints)
    apires@paypal.com (Amanda Pires — Media Relations Contact)
    Tip: Send your problem to EVERY PayPal email address that you can find, not just one. That way you have different people and different departments dealing with your problem.
