gdamn credit card theives!!

so today i check my statement and when i lost my wallet i find a charge at a gas station for $66 fuckin dollars up in gurnee! Luckily i already claimed it lost and ill dispute the charge but it pisses me off that people find a wallet and gotta try to use my shit and get whatever they can. Guess thats what i get for hoping that "maybe" somebody is honest and would be nice enough to return it. Now i just wanna see if i can find the douchebag and send the cops to his door. Who knows what other cards he tried to use had i not cancelled them.

Do they have cameras at citgo? Or is there anyway to find this out? Never had this happen.

What suprised me is i lost it downtown (after the ticket and before the crash, hell of a day) and i stayed around for about an hour looking up and down where i was to try and find it. he got up to gurnee within an hour in morning traffic, must of been bookin it down there

Unfortunately, not much is going to happen. Citgo will get a chargeback notice from their credit card processing company about the fraudulent charge and will be given a few days to produce evidence of the gas theft. Chances are he used the card at the machines outside so Citgo will just eat the cost and the $66 will be debited from their CC processing checking account, while being credited to your credit account. This is also why some gas stations have extra security on their outside machines. Zip code entry (although he probably had your license since he had your wallet), teller only authorization, etc.

Be happy it was only $66.00

"I was riding along, and this curb jumped right out in front of me. I was pinned in so I tried to brake, but I hit it. Upon impact, my wallet was launched out of my pocket and it did some Michael Jordan 'swoosh' right into this pedestrian's back pocket and he didn't even know it!!!

At the gas station later on, they must have gotten confused and grabbed the wallet that was kissing the wrong asscheek and used my card instead."

Shouldn't this thread really be titled "Damn myself for not making sure I had my wallet before I took off after being pulled over by the man"?

Gas stations are the first place people hit when they find a stolen credit card. They don't have to show their face and the bank will not investigate for a few hundred.

I was on a cruise last week and noticed a wallet on the floor while taking a leak. I did not look in it but could tell it was packed with cards. I gave it to the barely english speaking casino manager. Someone could of done damage with it..

i left my card at a gas station counter late one night when i was drunk in a different town. i got a phone call on my cell at 7 in the morning from citi telling me there were a bunch of charges on my card, they wanted to know if it was me. over $200 in gas, $400 in groceries, and like $150 in car parts within a matter of a few hours. they had my back the whole time and covered me for all of it. turns out some guy walked in to pay for whatever and swiped my card off the counter. citi told me they had contacted the police and it would be taken care of and i had nothing to pay.

on a different occasion, i got screwed over by a bike company (TXF Xtreme out of texas) when i bought an undertail from them. the manager refused to return my calls and every other "sales associate" at that place would put me on hold for as long as i stayed on the line. at one point, i refused to get off my phone. i spent over an hour with the headset jammed in my ear waiting for a response. when somebody picked up, he claimed to be the janitor! i canceled the order when 3 weeks passed with no response from anybody working there and no undertail at my door. at first, they said the piece was shipped out and gave me a bogus tracking number. i told them i was reporting them to the BBB and they yelled at me on the phone. i reported them and told the guy i wouldn't mark "issue resolved" until they refunded my money. they still didn't, so i called citi. they hooked it up and i got my refund the next day. a month later, i get a call and they're telling me i would be reported for theft because my undertail was shipped and signed for by the front desk at my apartment complex at the time. the date received was 3 weeks after i canceled the order according to the woman at the apartment office. TXF got in touch with them and said they would report the matter to the police if THEY didn't pay for the product. the woman at the office told the chick from TXF that they wouldn't pay for the package and it would be sent back in the morning, to which TXF replied, and i quote: "you people don't understand business at all! if you knew anything, you would know this needs to go to one of your tenants! you're fuckin paying for it!"

lessons learned from TXF Xtreme:
1) when other people give shitty reviews to a company, don't keep your fingers crossed that you will be the one exception

2) citi is a bunch of s

3) making nice with the woman that had to deal with the same crazy bitches on the phone as you ends up in ing uglies! it's a fact, look it up!
