Ah... that First Cup of Coffee...

.... and an early morning scam.

My credit card has been used to purchase more than $700 worth of merchandise at Best Buy, says the "FRAUD ALERT" email this morning, giving me a URL to contact. The link leads to a dead page. Something is verrry speeecious here, Lucy.

I had to get the straight scoop from The Times of India, wasting valuable minutes when I could have been writing on some totally absurd topic pretending to contain real meaning and purpose. Now tell me, how and where does one report that kind of FRAUD!

Er... same as most places, usually, 911? Up here you can phone in stuff like this.

You're lucky it led to a dead page. we had never used ours on the net when someone obtained details and spent an absolutely enormous amount of money on dirty phonecalls via a card. Telstra supposedly has flagging to signal abnormal use. Fortunately we weren't responsible and bamk notified Fraud Squad of NSW police. We've heard no more.
