i have a credit card that i never use. i believe (no, i know) that i got it while in college, at a fourth of july festival, at a booth preying on young, dumb kids like me. they promised me a free slinky if i signed up, and then for some dumb reason, they gave me a huge line of credit...like $25,000 or something ridiculous like that.
anyhow, it has been many years since i opened this card. i keep it just because it was my first card ever. call me sentimental (i don't still have the slinky, unfortunately), or call me credit saavy, but i still have the card. i never use it though, and it has a zero balance....until a few months ago.
because it has a zero balance, i never check my statement. but then last week, i got a piece of mail from a debt collector saying i owed $400 on this credit card. i immediately called my card service line and was informed that some jerk-off is the proud new owner of a brand new bike. and i am the victim of credit fraud.
luckily, having been a loyal customer for over 15 years, they were quick to throw my claim into the fraud pool. and while they will probably never catch the jerk, at least i'm off the hook. the thing that sucks is that i sure could use a brand new bike!
