fraud on account...

this is what happend to some body this week.

this morning, round 11am, i find out there's several 100 bones missing from my account. I FREAK!!! i go online, and check my account online. i see the withdrawal occured at the home depot in cedar park! what the hell, i never have been inside there.

i call my bank to make sure it's correct
sure enough, bank rep says, yep, its correct
i say, no way
the rep directs me to call home depot
i call hd and speak to mgr. she tells me that there is no transaction indicating that i bought anything there.
i call bank again and tell them what the mgr told me
i'm directed to call gpd
i call gpd and was told to call cppd since the inident occurred in cp
i call cppd
cppd told me i had to go in person to fill out fraud report
i haul *** from g-town to cppd
i fill out fraud report
cop there tells me this happens often and it has happened to him 3x in past year
he says multiple reports are made daily
i thank him, get my pd case # and haul *** to g-town
i meet up with 2 sheriff deputies and a chief constable from pct 3 for lunch at macalisters
we talk and discuss bad customer service, problems of technology, and other things
i then go to my bank and fill out affidavit
lady is nice and tells me i will get a temporary deposit in my account sometime within 10 days
if investigation turns out fraudulant, it stays, if not, money goes back
lady was nice enough to tell me it sounds like it is fraudulant
i get copies of the affidavit and decide to go to hd in cp
i got lucky, i happen to stop by as the region mgr for loss prevention is leaving
he assists me
after explaining what happens, he tells me there is little they can do at this time
i tell him, since 10/06 i've spent several k at hd and hope they can be proactive in assisting me
he decides to sit by comp and assists me
we find the transaction
it was a phone order on 2/24 and p/u on 2/27
they guy who did it, was standing next to us
needless to say, while we're searching tapes, the store mgr pulls in the guy who worked the transaction into a room - it didn't look good as the room had windows. looked like dude was getting his *** chewed out!
we track down time and guy starts checking video.
meanwhile, in my hands, i have the paper transaction with the assholes sig who took my money and the plywood he bought with it
of course, the sig is a scribble
scary thing, my address and name was on ticket, but, not my full first name, but the nickname i go by
guy tells me there he is
i see the ************ on video
******* beaner, bout 5'9", 250lbs, dark, hair to shoulder, and wearing a jacket and cap
there's enough of his face to id the guy for anyone who knows him
loss prevention mgr believes this guy to be a contractor who's been scamming hd
we look at several different vids of parking lot in an attempt to id vehicle
coincidentaly, he parks just outside camera view
the scary thing, the guy walks in, the worker tells another worker, who took the phone order, that the "customer" who put in the friday order by phone is there to p/u the wood
she calls him via phone in another dept
the dumbshit has the order printed, the attending worker just grabs the order from the printer and hands it to the ******* for a sig
guess what
no one fukn bothered to ask for id
guy gets his order and out he walks
i'm trembling with anger
i'm thinkin it's one of the spics workin in my hood
i haul *** to see if i can find and id the guy in the hood as there are still 3 homes under construction
no chance
i then haul *** to builder rep and explain what happened and asked her to have building supr call me
i want him to view vid and see if her recognizes as on of his subcontractors or someone that might work for him
i then haul *** back to sheriff's office, where my ofc is, and vent with one of the deputies
after hearing waht happened, he believes that it's someone close to me or has knowledge of me
mostly, because the guy used the nickname. all my transactions with card # have my full name.
plus, we try to shred all receipts and anything with our name and address
so, there lies the mystery
i'm out, severl 100 dollars, and i'm waiting for the det from cppd to call
but, at least some peeps have been alerted
meanwhile, i'm sitting here, pissed, aggravated, and wondering if i should contact a lawyer due to gross negligence for lack of checking id and credit card
i'd like to call my dad and have 1 of his lawyers bulldong on this, but at the same time, i don't wanna get lectured by my father on me using my card, and being careless and all that other ****!
****!

Man....that really sucks. Keep us posted to the outcome of this BS. The whole thing is kinda scary. BTW, what did you do that caused this to happen? You said your Dad would get after you....for what?

I hope it works out your way.

1. Submit all your documentation to your bank - you've done more than enough to establish the fraud. That means your refund money is going to stay. Frankly, I'm amazed you found out everything you did.

2. Don't worry, the guy will be back - they always come back if they think they got away with it. It will be sweet to see him busted.

This is why I get online almost daily to manage all my accounts. Check, save, credit cards...the works. I know exactly what the totals should be and exactly where/when I buy stuff.

Man that really BLOOOOOOOWW'SS
They need to put that dude under the jail, cells to good for him,
If you don't get your cash back at least tell the store that you want a line of credit for the amount you got scammed for! It seems like there the one at fault for being asleep at the switch.
