Fun Family Fraud

So this trip is off to an ominous start ... 2 1/2 months before I even leave.

Wells Fargo started calling my parents, telling them there was possible fraudulent activity on my account.

Woot.

Turns out that Big Brother had my back, just the wrong phone number from when I set my account up about a decade ago.

I've been spending more than usual on my credit card to keep the ole cash account padded for my trip (I'm not sure dirt farmers accept Visa, you know - hey Matt, they have dirt farmers over there, right?) and Wells Fargo freaked out. Good to know they're watching, in a pacified Orwellian way, cause what if someone had stolen my card and bought a ticket to Korea three months in advance as an extended getaway plan?

Korea? What the heck? That's awesome yo!

I got a call like that from Visa, once. Someone had stolen my number and used it to spend $1,400 on gas and teeny bopper clothes in Detroit.

But Korea? Yeah, that's pretty far from Detroit I think.

Dad - I'm going to buy you an opium pipe.


Behnnie - Don't pretend you didn't buy those clothes for yourself.
