Happy Freakin' New Years

I got off work on New Years Eve and I went to buy gas, when I tried paying with my credit card the cashier said the card had been declined. I was nowhere near my limit so I asked her to try it again, I was declined again.

I got home and called the credit card company figuring the recent holiday shopping had triggered an irregular spending alert. They asked me what the last purchase I made was, I told them I bought tickets at ticket master the day before. They asked me if I filled up at Ultra-Mart. I have no idea where I would even find an Ultra-Mart. Apparently it was in Montreal!

Somehow my card had been duplicated and was being used in Montreal. Luckily I made a purchase the day before which sent up the flag that I was buying two different things 600 Km apart with hours.

My card has been cancelled and a new one is on the way. I'm going to be reimbursed for the gas but the big hassle is having to change all the monthly withdrawals coming off with the new card that will arrive in a couple of weeks.

A nice way to end the year I thought.
