    ...Debit/Credit card forgeries? Yes, some dick wad's been using my debit card account info to buy his/her bullshit at GAP and whatnot, and has put me into debt. Gonna see the bank first thing tomorrow, and I'd BETTER get immediate reimbursement.

    Also hope whoever did it will choke and die. Just needed to vent, I seriously want to burn his house and beat his mother. Good lord.

    Hell. I'm sorry that happened dude.

    I honestly think if anyone ever stole my identity.. I would tell the FBI they'd better find him/her before I do. :}

    Well I called my bank yesterday and saw them today. Bloody unhelpful sons of bitches.

    Basically closed my account, made it credit only and filed a fraud report, but they would NOT reimburse me in any way whatsoever within the next 24 hours. Basically the "it's the process, you might get some back throughout the process of the investigation blah blah blah"crap. Basically, they won't help me beyond the mere administrative stuff, and I'm expected to survive on my negative balance.

    Pure. Utter. BULLSHIT.

    I've rarely felt this frustrated, enraged and defeated at the same time. It must've been my decency that kept me from strangling the bank people there.

    Good thing my parents are backing me up, and my Mum's sure to go after their asses. She's been working in a bank (HSBC) for over 20 years, so she knows her stuff.

    Either way, I won't be banking with Citizens Bank again. Fuck them.

    I had my former [cough]Royal[/cough] Bank "misplace" $800 back when I was in University. This was right before a long weekend, and it left are balance at around $20. When I went in they told me it was a keying error (whatever that is... I think bank-speak for type-o) and they would have to investigate on the Tuesday where the money went. I basically told the lady that was not acceptable (I'm sure I used different wording), and this had to be corrected now. About 20 minutes later the money was back and they were very apologetic. Needless to say I no longer felt comfortable banking at a bank that seemed to misplace money from an account.

    However, this was well before the days of ID theft that we have today.

    I think that is crap that they can't get this fixed up right away. Hopefully you get this worked out sooner than later. If they do force you into an over-draft because of this, I would demand that they handle the service and interest charges - or you will be taking your business elsewhere (which I am sure you will anyways... but they don't need to know that).

    Yeah it really fucking sucks. I basically did tell them it was utterly unacceptable, and all they could do was bumble like buffoons, with that "blame the system, not us" look. It's fucking ridiculous.

    I did get them to assure me that all overdraft charges and all will be refunded once it's over with, but they've definitely not heard the last from me. This makes me so glad I have a parent that works in the industry.

    Totally sucks. I just got my CC number stolen online. Dealing with companies to get it resolved is a bitch and a half.

    This is the main reason I don't like debit cards and only use a credit card. I like the extra layer of protection.
