So someone stole my credit card number around August 1st. Discover was really nice about it and removed all the charges and changed my card #, but I just want to say that whoever spent hundreds of dollars at Samsclub.com, Casio Electronics, and 1-800 Flowers...you're really cliched.

Happened to Melissa. Someone bought $4000.00 plane tickets to the UAE and $1000.00 worth of disposable cell phones. How's that look for me trying to renew my greeancard.

Oh shitty! All that just for flowers, an iPod, and two tons of canned meat. Unoriginal!

OK, that's worse, you got me there.

This is me on the phone to Discover:

Fraud Researcher Person: "So did you spend $150 at 1-800 Flowers.com?"

Me: "Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. ...No."

I just went and looked and found it stuck between the seat and the car door. Is your address the same as on your driver's license? I can mail it to you asap.

And they just get chucked away afterwards? What a waste! Can't people just get pay as you go phones?

Oh my identity was stolen by someone named Nelson who bought a bunch of cell phones on Amazon.com.
I always thought getting your identity stolen would be far more exiciting than it really ended up being.

Too late, I already bought a dozen disposable cell phones.
