This past week has been spent trying to catch the thief from Monroeville Alabama that made the poor choice to try to purchase a Handheld phone from HP for $538.98 using my money. When I got an e-mail from HP Home & Home Office Store telling me that my order had been shipped to :
****** *. *******
*** Golf Drive
Monroeville, AL 36460
I set about tracking down the problem because I had not ordered a Handheld phone from HP. Thank goodness they sent me that e-mail to confirm the purchase because I was able to stop payment on the order and they showed the person that it was being shipped to in the letter . On further investigation it appears that since April 24, to the best of my knowledge, they have been on quite the shopping spree trying to use my money. At this point holds have been put on my account so no further funds can be withdrawn.
One large purchase made on May 19, that they apparently attempted to return and get the cash for, caused the hold to be put on my account. The banking systems did do a good job of protecting any further drain on funds.
The only reason that their was that much money to be robbed from me is because I had bought really nice Mother's day gifts, that I had saved up for, and the money was in my account because I bought the gifts on line and had to put them on a credit card to get the transaction to go through. The money was in my account waiting for the CC bill to come so I could pay for them.
Be careful our there ladies!
