Yesterday around dinnertime I got a call from Ticketmaster. I thought it was a marketing call and was ready to hang up when my ears picked up the word fraud. "Excuse me, could you please repeat what you just said?!!"
Long story short...some SOB (yes, I do mean SOB) used my credit card number to purchase sporting tickets!!! Ticketmaster suspected fraud and contacted me to verify the purchase. NO. I did not buy over $1500.00 worth of tickets! They suggested I contact my local police, which I did.
The officer called me back tonight to let me know they have info on the thief and will attempt to prosecute. I say throw his/her arse in jail! Thieves are doing this to so many people. To me it is no different than robbing me personally. I still feel violated! It is NOT a victimless crime!
So be sure to check your statements carefully and notify your credit card company and local authorities if you find anything suspicious!
