So i'm putting clothes away, and Jason throws me my bank statement..which i rarely ever open or look at...but i (to avoid more cleaning) opened it up, and didn't notice anything out of the norm...until the second page...then i saw a similarity on the first and second page and i didnt' know what it was. It said MC reservation rewards 10.00
and on the first page, it said the same thing....on the 22nd of December, and the 22nd of January. So I thought to myself..this is NOT a purchase i made..on the same date of two months! Luckily, there was a phone number. I called it, and the lady told me it was a LINK off of brylane catalog that I MUST have signed up for. I said...NO...she said "sometimes its a link, and if you even click on it, it automatically signs you up. " so I said "cancel me immediately, i did NOT sign up for this!"
then i asked her "how long has money been taken out of my account through this program?"
and she replied...(omg) "since JUNE of 2007!"
19 freakin months! That's 190 dollars! Holy freakin crap!
So I told her (in a not very nice way) that I wanted every single dollar of that money refunded back to me immediately, or I'm gonna press charges (or something like that) and she said she would refund me..but OMG..if I hadn't caught that on my bank statement, who knows how many years would have gone by???
Moral of the story...check your bank statement!!!!
