Ok, if there is one thing that I am absolutely anal about...it's my credit cards / debit cards.
Don't get me wrong, I have lost them a time or two as I was growing up, was half asleep, or simply just not paying attention. I've experienced the gut curling cramps. I've experienced the rumbling volcano of bile that makes you want to wretch at the enormity of what could happen if the cards ended up in the wrong hands.
So, imagine my surprise when I read this article. Now not only did this woman have her wallet stolen while she was at work, BUT she also gave the crooks the pin number when they called her at work asking for her banking details.
Ok, so presuming that she didn't know that the wallet was gone by the time the crooks called (busy shift in the mattress store waking up the sleeping mattress testers??), why would you EVER consider giving ANYONE your pin number OVER THE PHONE?!
In an era when credit fraud is rampant....why? Why? Whhhhhhy???
There are times I just don't get people! Seriously!
If you haven't read the article yet...feel free to click here. Honestly, if you feel like you would be prone to do this, firstly, DON'T. Secondly, if you feel prone to do this...read the article. Please, Please! Learn from someone else's mistake!!!
Have a great one! =)
