Altruism at it's Worst

Well, either the economy is really bad and people are going to extreme measures...or security at banks and credit card companies have become quite lax.

We have had a credit card company and the bank both contact us in the last week to let us know that their databases had been hacked and they needed to issue us new account numbers.

Wouldn't it have been nice if they had told us PRIOR to my trying to make purchases?

In addition, a business at which Troy made a purchase had also been hacked and Troy's credit card was actually used to make some purchases.

But, the thief was nice enough to make a donation to the American Cancer Society in Troy's name.

Gotta love a criminal with a good heart.


This has never happened to use before, and now three times in as many weeks. Is it me, or is there something else going on here?

Just what you need...extra stress! Sorry to hear about your woes. It's S-C-A-R-Y if you ask me!

We had the bank contact us about both our debit and our credit card within about a week of each other.
No one put anything on it, but it is annoying.
