Got a call at home from my alert credit card
company. They had declined a couple charges,
and wanted to chat.
Fraudsters in their extreme efficiency had
managed to get the card info — not so amazing,
what with all the electronic tracking tricks
nowadays — and then flashed their brilliance:
Someone had tried to buy beauty supplies at a
shop in one of the Carolinas exactly one
minute before the company called me.
And exactly one minute prior to that, a thief had
attempted to rent a car in the state of Chiapas,
With my purloined card, each of them.
And yet with (legitimate) electronic ticket in
hand, the parking lot guy cannot find my car?
WTF is that?
