We're Not Alone

We are not the only people here in the valley who have had their credit card number stolen and misused. We learned from other blogs that a number of people had similar experiences recently. And Monday on the evening news, we learned that even the sheriff, Joe Arpaio, had his number stolen. The police have found that someone hacked into a local grocery store's computer and stole the numbers.

We are fortunate that our bank contacted us right away. Some people found out only when they tried to use their card and it was declined. How embarrassing! If the bank hadn't caught the problem, I probably would have seen it in a few days, since I check the account online regularly. I'm doing it even more often, now.

I hope they catch the thieves and we don't face this again in the future.
