In this age of instant money transferring, we really must be vigilant at all times. Sometimes things are accidental, but even so you must watch your money. This just happened yesterday:

I was at a local store and attempted to make a $25.00 purchase on my debit card. It was rejected. I called the bank and asked why was my card rejected. I was informed that my account was over $9,000.00 overdrawn. Long story short, my wife and I are installing a swimming pool. The payment agreement is 3 payments of 30% each upon certain completion points, then the final 10% at completion. I wrote a check on 12/3 for the 3rd 30%. The pool company "cashed" it electronically on 12/6. Then, on 12/10, they deposited the actual check into their account. So, the same check (a sizable check) was debited against my account twice.

We were able to get this problem straightened out quickly, but dang. Even though I'm convinced it was just a simple no malice screw up, if we had been traveling or something it could have caused untold catastrophic problems.

Given the eternal human capacity for chicanery and/or incompetence, it's remarkable that anything works at all. :-)

I agree with Steve. Someday we're all going to wake up to find that our bank and investment accounts have been emptied overnight. :-(

Danged scammers! The lease on my Honda Accord EX expires in less than 60 days. Yesterday had a phone call and caller ID said Honda Le

Guy said he was from Honda Leasing and had a one day end of year special on my exact car. He would let me have it for 4000 less than the agreed buyout price. I asked him the buyout price and danged, he knew it to the penny!

Boy these guys are slick,eh?

I told him where to shove it and slammed the phone down! Doesn’t pay to even answer the phone anymore!

I've been getting two calls a week about extended warranty coverage on my vehicles. Wonder which one they want to cover my '21 T or my '55 Studebaker pickup daily driver?


GR, you forgot... you can keep your doctor.

Tommy: wait a couple of years then tell them you have a '21 ford..... Yep I did forget that one, but I don't want to keep mine and if it weren't for needing Synthroid I wouldn't!

I get calls from an 800 number that wants me to apply for a refund on software I didn't need or use up.

I just have to press 1 to apply for my refund!
