Imagine opening up your credit card bill after the holidays and realizing that there are charges on there you didn’t make. This happened to me in January of this year. What made is so frustrating is my credit card number was used not only at a local electronic store kiosk machine to purchase an e-download (No clue what this is or what it means but this is what I was told) but it was also used at several online stores at which I never shopped at. I felt not only helpless but violated and not to mention terrified that I would be responsible for all those purchases. Lucky for me the credit card company investigated and reversed the charges and thankfully I was not responsible for them but I did have to endure months of worry and wondering what was going to become of it. Not only that it wasn’t the first time it happen to me. Well over twenty years ago someone stole my identity, my social security number and I went through many countless hours, days and months trying to fix the wrong and make things right along with prove who I was. Something the thief was never asked to do. Yes, it was very stressful especially for a single mom and being a teenager I was pretty clueless. I wondered how can prevent this again or who can help me monitor things so that it doesn’t ever happen again. I finally have the answer.
