Some of you may know that I lost my wallet - or it was stolen - a couple of weeks ago.
The good news is that there is no sign of identity theft or any wrongdoing with my accounts. That would be the silver lining of having very little in those accounts, I suppose. Nobody wants my credit.
The bad news is that even with that small blessing, there is still some financial smackdown on this, because things I didn't know about / had forgotten - like a phone bill (ironic, that, as I now work for the phone company), the second payment of a recurring donation to a charity, etc - still try to come out of those accounts. Then they bounce (because of the wrong account number, as I have changed the numbers to avoid said identity theft), and I'm out the $29 my credit union charges me for NSF.
For each transaction.
Remember up there where I said that my accounts were almost empty anyway? Yeah.
We'll pull out of it, but it's still a pain in the financial neck.
