The walmart.com site has apparently had security issues. Someone hacked our account and bought 3 50 dollar iPod gift cards in Westminister, CA and used our info for payment. In short, we’re so screwed it’s not funny. As if Eric’s reduced hours at work weren’t bad enough to the point that we can barely make ends meet, now this. We’ve reported all of this to our bank, etc, and they will dispute it but that doesn’t help when it shows that we’re now 100 bucks overdrawn, and I cannot pay the bills that were due because someone in California thought they’d get three frigging ipod gift cards using my walmart.com account. Walmart.com won’t cancel the charges because the cards were already shipped. Really?! I don’t even know what to do now. I feel so defeated.
Our bank says that there’s nothing they can do for 7-10 days till it clears but things will keep bouncing until then? They MIGHT take off the overdraft charges (35 bucks a pop) if it’s showed that we’d have had enough money in there before. I feel so demoralized that it’s just not even funny. Just how much of this kind of crap can one person take? We’ve been struggling since Thanksgiving last year. Heck, I had to get a stupid cash advance (interest is 30 bucks per hundred borrowed every two weeks) just to pay the electric bill that is probably going to be dishonored by my bank now since I’m overdrawn. I am so sick of this BS and just want to know when it’s going to be over so I can think again. So I can breathe again. I’m starting to wonder if I ever will. Why bother? Why not just give the hell up …? In the meanwhile, the 75 bucks that I HAD for groceries this week is also gone, sucked up by some asshole in California who I don’t know. What is it? A joke? A game? A cute way to get something they wanted because they are too lazy to work for it? Well, glad they’re having fun. I am at the end of my rope. I see absolutely no light at the end of this for us. I’m so sick of feeling like this. I honestly don’t see anything getting better, and what do you do when optimism fails? It was my last attempt at keeping it together—to be positive, to think that everything was fine. It’s not. There’s always going to be something out there to break me down every time I think we’re going to be able to get back up again.
