After I finished my shift at the day job, I stopped by the nearest Circle K gas station / convenience store for a fountain drink — a “Polar Pop,” they call it.
Imagine my surprise when the clerk tells me my debit / credit card was declined.
Anyway, I had a spare ∅1 note to cover it, but still . . .
So I get home and log into my Nusenda account. That’s when I discover that my card had been hacked, or cracked, or whatever.
Apparently, Nusenda locked out my account because some asswipe in Ephrata, Pennsylvania decided to help himself (herself?) to ∅90 worth of goodies at the local Wal-Mart, using my account to pay for it all.
I haven’t been to my old stomping grounds (about 50 miles east of Ephrata) in 21 years and change. When I did live in Pennsylvania, I never had a reason to go any part of Lancaster County. So I’m guessing that the perpetrator was just using some random card number obtained from the internet or whatever, which just happened to be mine.
May his / her genitals rot until his / her dying day.
