I didn’t feel good when I went to bed last night. Whether I overdid or not, I don’t know. Washed out. Blah. Wasn’t any better when I got up this morning.
I hardly ever check my email first thing but something nudged me that way. I was shocked to find this:
Thanks for ordering from Walmart.com. Here’s a summary of your order.

I logged into my account on Discover’s site and, sure enough, there was a charge processing from Walmart for $324.70. I immediately initiated a chat with a representative. It was answered by a nice person by the name of Mercedes. She couldn’t see the charge on her side yet because it was still pending. She advised me to cancel the order with Walmart if I could.
While I still had her on chat, I went to my account on walmart.com. I sent an email explaining that I had not ordered five mouses and wanted the order canceled. When I pulled up the transaction, the “cancel” button showed up so I clicked it. It wasn’t long before I received an email confirming the cancellation. It said it might take several days to credit “my” mode of payment but when I went back to the Discover site, it was already there.
Mercedes asked if I wanted a different credit card number. YES!! She put in the request and I should receive a new card in 4-6 business days.
I’d started all this a little after 6:30 and the last exchange on chat was at 7:34.
I looked up the address the order was to be sent to and this is the google street view. Then I just googled it and found that it was sold less than a month ago. I was even able to find the name of the person who bought it. Kind of scary all the information that’s out there.
Something similar to this happened back in 2007. However, Discover had found the unauthorized charges because of an unusual pattern of behavior. Even if I hadn’t found this and other charges had been put on my card, I would have zero liability. If I’m going somewhere out of the ordinary, I call and notify them before I leave.
My day has been less than productive. I went back to bed and slept for about an hour. My back has been hurting and even though it’s gotten above 80 in the house, I think I’ve chilled some. I definitely didn’t feel up to getting the frozen jugs out of the freezer so I could try out the “new” a/c. I took a bath and I think I failed to rinse the shampoo out of my hair.
Twinkle is sitting at my feet. I’m going to go see if she wants something to eat and then I’ll take my NAC and generic Zantac. After drinking my last 16 ozzies of water, I’ll think about going to bed. It’s been quite a day.
