Shopping {Spree}

I wish that the shopping spree my blog title is referring too had to do with me winning this AMAZING prize and getting to go shopping on my birthday weekend.
However, it was not me that got to go on a shopping spree, it was the scumbags who stole my identity my birthday weekend and opened 6 credit cards, that I know of currently.
I came home Saturday to check our mail and was very surprised to have 3 brand new credit cards in my name that I did not sign up for!
As of right now the only card they actually used was the Target credit card.
They bought $450 in thong panties....
I am not sure I have purchases $450 worth of panties in the 26 years I have been alive....
Saturday I had to call all of the credit card companies and report fraud, call the 3 credit bureaus and file a police report.
The only good thing that I see coming out of this, is that they may actually get caught. These people are actually shopping in the town I live in!
Thankfully Target has security cameras that they are going to release to the police so that they can get pictures of what the people look like.
I am so disgusted that people actually take someones personal information and use it to steal not only from the person whose information they are using illegally but from the stores that they are getting these credit cards from.
I honestly hope these people get hit by the city bus that they use as transportation or that I get to punch them in the throat......
Has this ever happened to any of you?
Here is to a better week - or at least trying to make it a better week.


  1. Oh my goodness! I'm so sorry this happened to you! No one opened cards in our name but, at Christmas, literally 2 nights before Christmas we got a call from the bank that our debit card had been used fraudulently. There was nothing we could do about it except watch our bank account go down, down, & eventually into the negatives since the bank wasn't opened until AFTER Christmas. Horrible mess! Sorry you're having to deal with this!

  2. Ugh!! I am so sorry that happened to you, I'm glad it sounds like they might get caught though. I hope they do so you can at least feel somewhat better! Someone once stole my info and ordered a bunch of crap online- like from a software company? Apps and games and stuff? They didn't catch them but at least it got handled quickly enough!!

  3. OMG I hope they catch them! How did you find out it happened???
