    Thanks to whoever just used my card info to run my bank account to a nice goose egg before my darling bank alerts finally chirped, “ uh, hey, so like, did you just spend 104 dollars at Denny’s after spending allllll this other money in less than an hour?”

    So, in my life, my account literally gets frozen trying to buy cat mouthwash, but some dude goes on a spending spree at the likes of Denny’s and other fun places and that seems like normal spending behavior for me.

    Sure. That seems about right.

    Can’t wait for that nice equifax settlement to really line my pockets!

    They were practically confused that I wasn’t just eating at a Denny’s 60 miles from my house.

    Or taking shots somewhere as we speak. Top shelf, by the looks of the charge :emoji_person_frowning:

    Only 60 miles pretty much means digital pick pocket or they got you at the gas station with a fake reader.

    The other charges were also in NC! So, yay.

    I don’t usually use my card at gas stations tho, tbh. I use cash for stuff like that. the only charges on that card lately were amazon, att, utilities, grocery store.

    Luckily, none of that is attached to my savings, which is tucked away nicely at a credit union.

    You only need to be within three feet to do an RFID hack. It's actually one of the worst technologies ever. I think you can get a scanner for like 20 bucks.

    Yeah, that :emoji_poop: sucks! I just hate being careful and still getting totally fucked over. I’m just glad that ash hole didn’t have access to my savings, cause that woulda been a whole different amount of stress.

    Still pretty pissed.

    There's the threat vector. Grocery stores will often have their parent distributors also act as payment processors with comically incompetent security; plain text records of card holder information stored on systems shared with janitorial staff at some warehouse.

    That’s how my data got stolen years ago from ATT. An employee used my card info to go online shopping for Christmas.

    I’m still twitchy over it.

    Matt’s just in the corner tutting like, “ this is why I use all cash.”

    That’s nice, honey.

    You know what's easier... never have money in the first place. That's what I do, just be broke.

    The problem here, the time investment necessary to sterilize the bills and then sort them by ascending serial number and denomination.

    May all the credit/debit card thieves get computer viruses that lock up all of their computers and make them play baby shark for all eternity.
