    Bowling ball would be one option but only if they quit hitting my fist with their face long enough...lol

    Well got hit again. This time for $84. I was issued a new card after the last time it happened. Yesterday I ordered something online for my wife for X-Mas then tonight got an alert for $84 charge for Island Cuisine in Towson, MD. Called and had the card shut off again so now have to wait for a replacement. What saved me this time is I had set up alerts on it so the alerts are instant, like within 1 minute, so as soon as I got it I called them. Last time I didn't notice it until 4 or 5 days later

    So cancelled my card last night then tonight took a road trip to Erie, PA and while there got a text saying my purchase for $55 from Papa Johns in Towson, MD was declined. They tried running it through twice then tried a 3rd time but it was $58 this time. Still declined. If I hadn't had those alerts set up that would have went through too as I probably wouldn't have known about it until Monday or Tuesday. That charge from last night still hasn't shown up so no way to know. I'll probably see it Monday or Tuesday. Googled it and Island Quizene is only about 1 mile from the Papa Johns they were trying to order from.

    See, I told you that you have money! If you didn't you wouldn't keep getting hacked. When the hackers break into my account they feel bad and start a "GoFundMe" instead.

    lol. I day trade options and this card was linked to my TD Ameritrade account I trade from. I have 2 accounts but the card is only linked to the smaller account. But I don't think they have any idea how much is in an account when they get the numbers. I trade in a couple of discord channels and see guys that are making up to $5000/day every day. One guy even made $4 miliion one day and a million each day before and after that. A guy in my one discord made over $10,000 this past week. I'm small time...lol. I'm happy if I make $200 for the week...lol

    At least they didn't hack those overseas accounts where you keep your real money

    Well wife texted se got an AT&T alert that someone tried to buy $1069 but the text looked fake so she ignored it. It wanted her to call a number and enter a code. A few minutes later she got another text from our credit union saying they denied a $1069 purchase due to lack of funds (there was only like $30 in that account cause we're broke (see what I did there Phoney?...lol). So long story short the charge did not go through but ironically I just got my new cared in the mail today to replace the one from the acct that was hit 2 weeks ago and on the same day I get this card they hit our other acct. She ordered from Amazon last night with that card. Our next door neighbor works at that credit union and is the one my wife talked to so she is just going to bring the new card home with her. But yeah, hit twice in 2 weeks now. And top that off with the police chase past my house Tuesday night...lol

    I've never seen anyone get hacked as much as you! Some hacker you arrested before you retired that just got out? You need to call in Adrian Monk to find these guys.

    In the meantime, get your money out of the banks and store the cash under your mattress, in a coffee can or in your case a 55 gallon drum or two. (See how I dismissed your "See what I did there?") Nice try

    You have had a long week I'll give you that. Always exciting at your house.

    Yeah. My mothers got hit about a week ago but her bank declined the charges so no harm done other than she needs a new card now. It's happening hard right now everywhere. Be careful out there.
