I am really bummed out. Received my bank statement today and found two charges on it that I did not make. I actually had to go on line to check out the names of the companies.. Sling.com was one and the other was ScratchMonkey.com. I have heard of Sling but not Scatchmonkey. Called my bank and I have to go in to file a complaint.. Bummer with the incoming bad weather it will have to wait.. It came close to $150.00 which is close to throwing me in to being overdrawn with my incoming bills. They said my debit card number was used.

They're going to make you wait to file a complaint rather than take it over the phone? :shock:
They did put a freeze on the debit card and are going to give you a new one, right?

I was surprised too about them not taking a complaint over the phone since I used my secret information to get them to speak to me...lol. They put a freeze on the bills that were not made by me.. I have several bills that are to come out today so I told them to let them go through and I will come in today to file a complaint and get a new card.

I have things under control at the bank. They are issuing me a new card and told me I would have a refund in 2 to 3 days.

Had a nice surprise from HSN they are refunding the shipping and handling on my air fryer and that will be $7.20.So my unused gas money will almost cover the first months payment..woo hoo..

Thanks it was a relief that they were so nice and filled out the paperwork quickly and assured me I would be getting my money back. When you have a limited income, and very little savings, it is scary to loose that much money.
