Default Cyber crime?

My wife got an e-mail today thanking her ofr her purchase of a MK bag at a mall near enough to us using a discover card. My wife thought maybe it was me making a purchase and didn't react until later when she arrived home from work. She asked me about my day at the mall, I said I wasn't there. Funny, she says I know when you lie and your not lying. I said why would I lie?

Then she tells me the above story. We called discover card and they ran all our cards including our SS#'s and they came up with nothing. Somehow they got my wife's e-mail address and they even send her a copy of the sales receipt.

Any thoughts on how to proceed with this? No new charges, no new cards, no new credit applications??

Yup. Go fish would be my guess, at least at this point. She didn't give any numbers away or sell the farm or anything at this point.



I always look at and empty my Junk/Spam folder and it's amazing how legit some of them seem. Seems to be an element of timing to it, too. If you ordered something and were expecting a package, etc.

Problem solved /averted. Wife's GF was shopping for a Christmas gift for my wife, bought her a MK bag (knows what she likes) and the clerk asked for wifes e-mail address for the warrenty info. They wound up sending a copy of the reciept and everything to my wife, dumb asses.

I told wife to tell friend not to give out any personal info in the future, she could always fill that crap out after the fact.

Thanks all.

You didn't have to go into detail. You could have just said no and left it to our imaginations.

On a good note, I'm glad this turned out to be a false alarm.

OKay let me put some lipstick on this pig for you guys. I haven't got any picks at the moment, but she's hot, 5'7", Asian in every sense of the word, long black hair, a suductive look even when she's not trying, tight pants always, she calls when you least suspect it and if the wifes not home she's glad to talk to who ever answers. Been out for a bite with her on more then one occasion, and when I tell you she likes it spicy, I mean spicy. I've been burned at least twice on our times out. When she gets together with my wife it's even hotter, my wife is Latin and doesn't mind making me sweat with flirtatious looks and sugestions.

I really want to take them both on but am affraid I won't be able to keep up and will be left behind to watch the action from the sidelines....

Now you can all sleep well with visions of sugarplumbs dancing in your heads.
