    One is described as, CHK CARD PUR ****** CHPWEBCCP CHPWEBCCPA ********* NL on my statement. The other is similar in nature. I starred out the numbers because I’m not sure if they are related to my account in some way. Anyway, I never lost my card or buy online. As a matter of fact, I only use it in the ATM machine. I’m not concerned that someone has my info……exccceeeppt possibly brother.
    I attempted to extract information about what these charges were and got nowhere. How can I find out what they are from so I can make sure that it isn’t something re-occurring? I assume it was something on the web seeing that there is clearly the words WEB in both of them. Actually, I’m starting to think I may know EXACTLY what kind of sites were charged to my account. *ahem*…Anyway, will the bank give me the names or do they even know the names of the sites that may be related to these charges so I can make sure they are not re-occurring and possibly hand out some sibling justice? Thankyou.

    I’m hoping I can receive some help. The other night I was at work and my fiance received a phone call that apparently came from my phone at 4:29pm. My picture had come up on his phone and so did my number…exactly like he programed it into his phone, although my phone was turned off and in my pocket at that time. The person on the other line asked him questions like what he was doing, if he wanted to come over, where he was at so that they could come to him. They also told him they know what his name is. This person would laugh every time he would ask who they were. At first he thought it was a joke from me or someone I work with so he hung up. But there was no way it was from my phone because I looked into my phone logs on MY phone and there was no call from my physical phone made to his at that time. In fact…I had not called him once that day at all. Nor had he called me. We decided to go on line and look up our bill and when looking at the phone history, it was the same way: he received a call from my number but my phone never called him. Confused still, I called the two people I worked side by side with all night even though I know my phone was with me and turned off all night just in case they may have played a joke and just as I thought, they hadn’t done that. So, I turned to the internet for answers and received nothing except for that fact that my cell phone number may have been spoofed. But how do I report it or stop it? I have read stuff that says they can hack into bank accounts and credit card accounts and I am starting to fear the worst. Can anyone help me or give me advise?

    they require ref numbers, serial numbers that they have supplied with the email. Is this real or a virus trying to get my basic details(name, age, tel number etc)

  5. Ok, I know its kind of a short notice move, but I’m moving out of state-from Michigan to North Carolina. I’m moving with my boyfriend/fiancee and our 2 month old daughter. We’ve packed all of our unnecessary things already. I’m just hoping that someone has been in this situation before-as far as the moving with a baby out of state goes- and is willing to tell me what exactly I need to get done between now and then.

    Oh and by the way, we haven’t yet picked the house exactly.

    Please, if anyone has been in my situation and is willing to help me within the time frame of a few weeks, I would really appreciate it. Please help!
    I already have her soc card and birth cert.
    my bfs going down to NC this weekend to definitely pick the house we’ll being moving into. So by the time I move down there with our daughter we’ll already have the house…..we just don’t have it currently.
    I mainly need help with the whole legality of the moving. Like how soon do I need to switch our insurances, find a doc/pediatrician, etc.

  6. There are several casinos in my area, and I gamble maybe 2-3 times a year, just for fun. Basically I want to go and spend a fun evening, without risking too much cash. What games would you suggest?

  7. I recently lost 99% of my home due to our windstorm/housefire.
    I’ve got a lot of questions and my ins guy “dont get it that I don’t get it”

    OK, here goes:
    I was forced to take “an early retirement” for medical reasons. I RARELY drive, and my vehicle was not driven except for no more than 5-10 miles a month to the store or doctor. My vehicle is an older model that I’ve considered to be in “storage” (because it isn’t a “daily driver” type of car and I rarely drive)
    Question 1. Since my ins is supposed to “make me as I was prior to the fire, shouldn’t they cover a rental car/transportation” to prevent me
    putting wear/tear on my vehicle that was pretty much “retired” as well?
    If so, where do I get proof to show them?
    Question 2. My coverage states I have X for my property I lost.
    The ins co says to keep all receipts and that they will “replace whatever at a DEPRICIATED cost”
    I was told by an ins dude, that indeed, they are to hand me a check at the end of this ordeal in the amount of X that my policy states.
    I’m not a greedy person and I FULLY INTEND on buying recycled/restored items whenever I can cause that’s the responsible Earth Respecting thing to do….and much of my stuff was NOT new, but meant a lot to me. What actually happens??
    Question 3. My home was OLD-I mean OLD and had original “bead-board” on all the walls. It was destroyed. I asked that it be replaced (as my policy says “put it back as pre-fire state”…I was told NO- that it would cost several thousand dollars and they will only do drywall. Is that really what is supposed to happen?
    Question 4. I have 3 dogs and have (had) a fenced yard for them…the ins co says they will cover my housing. I’ve only found a few places to rent and they don’t have a full fence. I think the ins should have to put up a temporary partial fence to “MAKE MY LIFE AS IT WAS PRIOR TO THE FIRE”….they say no, that I’d have to pay that.
    Question 5. When renting…many folks demand a “PET DEPOSIT”…I get that, but some say a NON-REFUNDABLE PET DEPOSIT-isn’t that incorrect-like-ok-charge extra for pets but saying “Deposit” doesn’t that suggest that if there’s no damage that the renter gets the “Deposit” back??
    Last question: My receipts, as well as all my medical records, kids pictures, well- EVERYTHING is gone-the ins co says they need my receipts to verify I had whatever…..how do I do that? I had so much stuff (in my home since the 80’s)…..it’s all gone. So do they just not reimburse me???
    Ok, I don’t understand ins stuff, but I don’t want to get rail-roaded either just cause I don’t understand it.
    Thanks, Everybody
    ps…make COPIES, & MORE COPIES, DOCUMENT EVERYTHING, take PICS, etc and keep your crap in a safety deposit box!
