Identity Theft

Writing has been my refuge this week. Haven't spent as much time as I would like at the keyboard because I've been battling Identity Theft. Takes time-with hours spent on the telephone trying to reach the fraud departments of credit card vendors, banks, consumer reports and the Postal authorities.

Answering a mechanical voice or entering numbers on the phone is one of the most frustrating things I've ever encountered. I find myself shouting at the phone.

I hope I have stopped the thief that has stolen things that should be private and wonder why with all the computer wizards we have around, the banks and credit card companies can't safeguard the information they request.

Wish me luck.

  1. Oh, Elise! So sorry to hear this. It is so scary to think how easy it is to be an identify thief. Hope everything is okay now. *hugs*
