Credit Disputes

I just looked at my online credit card statement and noticed that it was overdrawn by about $750. My first thought was that I had spent far more drinking than I normally do. That, however, was not the case as I looked closer at my charges. Now, I don't normally divulge a lot of my personal life, but I guess I will share a little about myself. My charges on the credit card since March 16 are as follows:

7-11 (29.50) -- gas
Netflix (19.47) -- entertainment
Apple Store (269) -- nano to listen to at work
Taco Cabana (.85) -- hmm, i think the cashier rang up incorrectly
Best Buy (53.01) -- sister's birthday and a cd
YAH (3.99) -- need to cancel...didn't realize it automatically renewed
Racetrac (26.25) -- gas (see, I am not loyal)
Centennial (15.14) -- alcohol (Becks)
Amoco (17.75) --- gas --- in manhattan, ny!
Racetrac (28.50) -- gas
MTA Vending maching (80.00) -- I don't ride the sub or live in NY
Pilot (326.25) -- gas in Midway, FL
Pilot (450.52) -- gas in Louisiana
AC&T(553.24) -- ??? in Maryland
Amoco -- (31.45) Gas in Brooklyn
Overlimit fee -- (29.00)

Capitalone has already put me in collections despite this obvious fraud that began 4/3/2006. I only found it from looking online as my card was declined. Obviously a big problem. Despite being a no hassle card -- I'm put in fraud.


Wow, holy crap. Perhaps their idea of what is a "hassle" differs from yours and mine. It sounds like a hassle to me!

I know your situation isn't very funny but it does remind me of how Laney pays back her psychic friends phone bill with her parents' gas card in Reality Bites.
