Okay so yesterday my bank account balance was -517.22 today it is -1,302.78, $500 of which is bank overdrafts fees. $25 for each use, 20 uses, so far there are a total of 25 fraudulent uses.
I went to the State Police to make the report. The woman I talked to has never used an ATM, a credit card, does not have cable tv, own a VCR, she just got a microwave a few months ago when someone gave her their old one. And yet, she totally understood everything I told her and was able to write it intelligently into her report. God, I wish she worked for the bank!
I then went to the bank with a printout from the internet showing the latest charges, since the last time they had a hard time finding what was out there. And filled out the paperwork for the additional 8 purchases. Still mostly at gas stations however there were also a couple of liquor stores this time also. I guess they felt the need to celebrate.
I then went to National City and reactivated an account I had there so I could deposit my unemployment check and pay my bills. The account was at a negative balance prior to my deposit (only $6), so they were not able to issue me a new ATM card (actually request the issuance of a new ATM card), but the woman stated that she could do this tomorrow once my deposit had cleared. She did set me up for on-line banking (no charge - there's a $4 monthly fee at my OLD bank) but it won't take effect for 7-10 days. Since I have no checks for this account, I then proceeded to call the folks that I owe money too right now and ask for an extension. Most were cooperative, and the rest screw em.
On the good side, I have an interview with Delphi in Saginaw on Wednesday at 9:30 am. The position is Coordinator General. The job description reads as Administrative Assistant so I should do awesome. I'll let you know how it goes.
