Sit Down before you read this post.
It is that shocking.
Friends, I have been the victim of identity theft.
This is not a joke.
Someone in Ontario is running around buying sheet music from some music store and they are using my credit card.
Back in November a charge on my statement came that I didn't recognize, I figured I forgot I bought something or some such thing and paid it. But today I got my statement and I recognized the store name, and I thought, what is that store? So I called the credit card company for some information and they told me that the store sells pianos, guitars and sheet music. Did that sound familiar?
Uhhh I probably would have remembered buying a piano or sheet music or a guitar thanks, I'm not an idiot.
The got a fraud expert on the line and he told me to fax a dispute to the company and we'll see what happens. He needs to check that I didn't sign the receipts to buy the music and all that.
Guy -thank you for your continued service
Me -yeah uhh cancel the card please before this gets out of hand.
Guy - Oh are you sure you want to cancel the card?
Me - Yes, I'd prefer to cancel with $100 worth of fraud before this guy goes and buys a piano thanks.
Guy - Well...
Me - Cancel the damn card
Guy - Well OK
And then something awesome happened, I pretended i was Dwight Schrute and shredded my credit card in the paper shredder just like he does in the opening of The Office.
It was awesome
