Identity Theft Victim Gets Last Laugh

Don't f*ck with Ovid -- the long version

This morning, I found out that thousands of dollars of charges had been made on two of my credit cards in the past two days. Now, the identity thieves are sitting in jail. This is how it happened. It involves identity theft, a careless thief, one pissed-off Ovid and lots of luck.

I mentioned earlier that it took me less than an hour to find them, but it really depends on when you start counting. Maybe two hours is more accurate. Eh, who cares? They're caught. And where I have times listed, these are the times pulled off of my cell phone.

8:02 AM. I get a call on my cell phone from a number I don't recognize, but I didn't get to the phone in time. Calling back gives me a recorded message informing me that "the subscriber you have dialed is unavailable or has traveled outside their service area." That seemed odd because they had called me a few seconds ago.

~10:00 AM. I receive a call on my home phone. I almost didn't answer it, but it turns out it was the Discover Card Fraud Unit informing me that $2100.00 in charges had been made on my card in the past two days and had I made them?

Well, no. I typically don't go on spending sprees like that, but Discover was very helpful and honestly, I didn't even think about calling the police. I was actually just happy that Discover was treating me fairly (I gotta say, Discover's always been good to me) and I assumed that this was some online scam the police couldn't do anything about.

I got bored reading it, want to read more? -->> here
