We had big plans for Saturday. Oil change for the car, birthday party shopping, Doc's Pizza for lunch (per the kids' request) and major grocery shopping. Our first stop was for the oil change. I ran to the grocery store across the parking lot to find some Tums and my debit card was declined. I immediately got nervous about how we were going to pay for the oil change if our card wasn't working. So hubby called the bank and they said they couldn't see why it wouldn't go through.
Of course it didn't go through. So after another call to the bank and being transferred to some 1-800 number, we found out that there had been fraudulent activity on our card and so they froze it.
We had gotten cash out already for lunch, but other than that, we were stuck.
Luckily, the car place took our check, and we were able to order new cards at the bank; but it really messed with our plans for the day. Our day ended up being infinitely longer than we had planned.
...all because some loser used our card number on Napster. I didn't even know Napster was still around.
