So.. I recently found out that someone was making fraudulent purchases on my credit card.
Eeekkk! It gives me all sorts of bad, icky feelings. I found out last Sunday night, which was terrible, because no one is at work on a Sunday evening. And what makes it even worse – it’s been happening for FOUR MONTHS!
Don’t give me a lecture on how I should be checking over my statements better and yadada. I’ve already realized that. Instead, I’m going to share a little public service announcement because I hope this never happens to you!
I was scammed by Vistaprint – a big brand name photo and card printing company. And it all started when I ordered our Christmas cards back in November. Ordering the cards went smoothly and when they showed up at our house, they looked great. No problems. I didn’t think I had any lasting ties to Vistaprint, it was a one time order.
