Curses! We’re Credit Card Fraud Victims! Again!

curses.pngSome low-life SOBs hijacked one of the credit cards probably sometime on our return trip from K-stan. I got a call from the credit union “robot” on Sunday advising me that it was concerned about unusual charges to the card.

Sure enough, there was a fraudulent charge of about $85 on a fuel purchase from a Shell station in Las Vegas, which in one city that we give a wide berth to when passing through Nevada, due to the congestion, high crime rate and traffic. We haven’t been through there in several years.

I got in touch with the 24/7 credit card hot line and had them suspend the card. A new one is probably on the way, reaching the PO Box sometime next week. This has happened before and may happen again. It seems in the past when we’re on the road that’s the time the cards get compromised.

I filed the necessary paperwork to dispute the fraudulent charge with the credit union. It usually takes a week to get the charge removed and they will credit my account with the disputed charge sometime soon. Meanwhile, no credit card available which is no big deal since we have other ways to pay for things.

I did a little research on the topic of how to avoid being victimized in the future and found out several ways that the cards can be compromised.

  • lost cards
  • stolen cards
  • skimmed cards
  • unscrupulous employees at the point-of-sale

Using care, we can discount the first two bullets. Shame on us if we lose or allow a card to be stolen.

However, the third bullet is something for which we can watch. “Skimmers” are appliances that can be overlaid on top of card readers. There are several types out there and we’re going to be on the lookout for them henceforth. Do a web search on “credit card skimmers” to see the variety of illicit devices out there.

As for the last bullet, there isn’t much that can be done about a jerk who is willing to sell your info to fellow jerks. We will just have to use our intestinal sensitization to make judgement as to whom we entrust our private information as best as we can.

Miscarriage My Ass


Today’s announcement by the FBI Director that the Hildabeast isn’t going to be charged might be said to have been a miscarriage of justice. Miscarriage, My Ass! It was an outright ABORTION of justice.

Donald Trump, for whom my enthusiasm is muted, noted, correctly, that “The system is rigged.” I should say so with all the positioning going on what with Bill Clinton “co-incidentally” having a private encounter with Loretta Lynch which to most observers was a meeting to ensure today’s abortive sidetracking of what should have been an indictment.

A several four word phrases apply:

  • The system is rigged.
  • The whole thing stinks.
  • They are all liars.
  • Our country is lost.

Liar Liar

pants on fire

The Better Half and I went shopping (like tourists) in Old Downtown. We saw a sign in a gift shop that inspired me to create this timely graphic for one of the most prolific liars in U.S. history. Clickable image.

A Rather Sly Liar


It still is astounding to me that even with both of the Clinton’s well-known policy of perpetual prevarications, that anyone, ANYONE, would consider voting for Hillary, especially after the revelations regarding her unsecured electronic communications server. Regardless of the facts, she still polls better than other potential Democratic candidates. Maybe not long, however, when charges associated with the latest scandals emerge to finally undo her quest to be queen elected. That brings us to the title of this post in that she is a rather sly liar and gets away with it because of allied media liars.

“Rather sly liar” is also an anagram. Click on the phrase below to unscramble . . .


Not all media cover her lies. The Washington Post (usually biased left) said:

you ought to stop — now! — with the unconvincing claim that you did nothing different from your predecessors as secretary of state. . . .
And wiping the server — you did work on Watergate for the House Judiciary Committee, didn’t you? . . .

Also:

Why, when she took office as secretary of state, did she decide to route official e-mails through a server in her suburban New York mansion? There is just one plausible explanation: She wanted control.

Clinton was no stranger to the rules of the federal government. . . .

Even if your name is Clinton, you have no right to unilaterally decide what is included and what is not.

So I wish Hillary Clinton would be respectful enough to say, “I’m sorry. I was wrong.” I wish she wouldn’t insult our intelligence by claiming she only did what other secretaries of state had done. None of her predecessors, after all, went to the trouble and expense of a private e-mail server. . . .

Sweet Schadenfreude

Yee in custodyWho could have guessed that ultra left wing gun-grabbing California State Senator Leland Yee was a common Chinatown thug and gang organizer?

By now most everyone who follows the gun-blogging on-line community will know that the San Francisco delegate to the State Senate has been arrested for corruption, gang involvement and, of all things, GUN RUNNING!

From a recent article:

A Look at the Evidence: California State Senator Yee Faces 125 Years in Prison

After reading the affidavit to the court provided by Special Agent Emmanual V. Pascua, we were blown away at the proportion of the charges against California State Senator Leland Yee. If it is proven in a court of law that he did what they alleging, then it is highly unlikely the Senator will ever taste freedom in this lifetime again.

On just one of the counts he allegedly was lining up a deal with Filipino Muslim Rebels (M.I.L.F.) to sell automatic firearms to an undercover agent he thought was a New Jersey mobster. The Senator specifically noted that these rebels were previously funded by Gaddafi, were not party to the current truce, and looking to overthrow the Philippine government. In return the “mobster” (undercover agent) would help fund his campaign for California Secretary of State. In this plan, the firearms were to be brought to the United States and then transferred to North Africa. Perhaps, Senator Yee was creating a ruse in order to keep garnering campaign funds, but the information given points to him being complicit in some form of criminal enterprise to illicit campaign donations.

For years as a frustrated citizen of the state, I saw this scumbag’s name in most of the stupid anti-gun legislation. It will be gratifying to see him put away for life, as the linked article speculates.

Wishful Thinking

. . . that this miserable bunch of racist, gun-grabbing scum should have their just deserts.
