While this is serious, we ended up laughing about it in the end.
We received a call supposedly from one of our banking credit card companies, alerting us that there was a potential fraud in process. My husband got the call as they said it was on his card. Actually he was kind of confused at the time thinking that someone else was using our card, so he spoke to the person who asked him to get his card out, and the first step was to verify the first four numbers of his card.
I asked my husband ‘W’ to put in on speaker so I could hear as well…. and scribbled ‘no information’! When he put it on speaker I asked who was calling, telephone number and name. The man said that he could only speak to the card holder and not me, so my husband just repeated what I said. He then told my husband if he wouldn’t cooperate then they couldn’t stop the fraud from happening. At this point I interjected that we don’t give information over the phone, and he said again he would only speak to my husband ‘b****’!
My husband then said that we wouldn’t give any information, and that we’d be calling the police. At that point he said “You do that you idiot”!
Here endeth the call! We did phone telephone number on our card and reported it and gave them the telephone number where the call originated. After my email hacking last year, I am always super cautious about giving any vital information by email or by phone!
I had to laugh after the fact, because of this so-called bank representative calling me a ‘b****’ … not too professional! I may sometimes be frustrating to talk to, but it’s been quite awhile….like ‘never’ that I’ve evoked such a name!
p.s. decided to add a recent painting just to brighten this post
