Even my ADD knew.it wasn't my fault.

Last Update: March 18, 2015

I was so excited to put in the good work today! Unfortunately, after my great (and productive) question and answer time with a long-time and knowledgeable affiliate here this morning...I received another NFS notification from my main bank account.

Someone has been making fraudulent extractions from my savings account! The tune of 175.00 bucks...that may be small for some. To me however, this is a huge hit.

After cleaning up my credit, so much so, that even AM EX is offering me credit...this was beyond terrifying! I say "was" because I took calm, decisive action to rectify the situation.

Being my ADD self I tend to blame myself first when it comes to anything involving numbers or anything of importance for that manner. I get confused and scattered easily.

I first saw a suspicious charge in February. I assumed it was something with my PayPal account because that was what was registering in my Savings Account. I might add, my savings account, which abso-freakin'-lutely no one is authorized to withdraw from.

PayPal, upon my first customer service call, said that no such account was registered with them. After ringing my bank, who immediately made inquiries after my call, Paypal (the second call to them today) amazingly found that yes, indeed, someone, with my same name, had registered an account with my bank savings info. and a different 619 number.

It's all being investigated and squared now.

I would say that I "wasted" all my day dealing with this but, the people and the situations I come across are just testaments to why I do what I do. I help people. People help me! I never go into a store or on a highway in a hurry. I don't wish to to be aggravated by the little stuff.

Yes, I know...my bank account is not "little stuff". I'm just that weird person that wishes that hacker is an 11 yo. that learns what not to do again. I'm not being naive, I'm being hopeful.

Terrifying, to be sure, When you live week or, daily/week by week like most do. We are all connected though...and what goes around comes around. I don't care what your religion or beliefs. Integrity is integrity. Respect begets respect.

Ugh indeed!

I had my wallet stolen and what I had to go through to prove that I am alive was quite the adventure.

Apologies it took me so very long to reply.

That's why I wrote the "You should read your own blog" blog ha!

So I don't skip over the kind sentiments and the ever evolving learning of this grand community!

I hope you are having an amazing week!

So glad you managed to sort out that bank account. $175 would be a lot for me to lose too.

By the way, one of the most successful internet marketers in this business has ADD.

Of whom do you speak of??

Inquiring ADD minds would like to know!

Apologies, that this response took so long.

Either that or, there was a glitch in the matrix!

All has been much better since then.

I have the karma police behind me heehhee!

Apologies, for the delayed response!

It looks like some of my comments have disappeared so I came back to make sure I didn't miss anybody.

I hope you are having a spectacular week!

I deal with things like this all the time. It's part of the game and the biggest time waster I can think of, but it comes with the territory.

I am all over the map. When it comes to this sort of thing I automatically think I am at fault. Thank goodness I question my ADD now ; ) Or, I would be knee deep in hacker gamer coins ; )
Or, rather, neck deep for the amounts they/he/she/it attempted to purchase.
