I have had quite a day! I was about to send the final payment for my little boy (through Paypal) but decided it would be prudent to make a payment on my card first so I wouldn't be seeing an astonomical balance
. I often pay online and when I went to their site I got a message that I couldn't access the account online. I had to call their customer service number.
I thought it was a simple glitch and would be fixed momentarily. Instead I was told there was a fraud watch on my account and they asked if I'd made two very large purchases on e bay recently. I said no and began to shake. I had a card cloned years ago and it took me two years with the help of an attorney to straighten it out and get my credit back on track.
I started to shake and thought, "oh no, not again." Well, they told me they were going to close the account and send papers for me to fill out for a fraud report. I should also tell you I told her the only large payments I'd made were to buy a puppy. I told her to whom those payments went.
Fast forward a couple of hours and something made me decide to call them back. It appears that the first person I spoke to screwed up and told me the purchases were for the auction when in fact they were to the breeder. Then my mind started racing and I thought, "OMG, what if they didn't pay her???" and now I can't send the final payment because they closed my account. Yikes! She's going to think I'm a total deadbeat.
Needless to tell you I've been really upset and this might delay (or worse) my getting Bailey this week. Please keep your fingers crossed that I can get this straightened out -- in time.
