Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Recently my credit card information (including my name, address, and phone number) were somehow stolen, and a whole bunch of charges were placed on it. I've had the card canceled but the charges keep trickling in, and I'm working with my bank to have the charges reversed. I know what to do here, that's not what I'm asking about.
What I can't figure out is motive. You see, whoever stole the card number is having a bunch of stuff from semi-legit online businesses shipped to my house. $70 in Shamwow, for instance, or $120 in body care products, or whatever. What the fuck is going on? At first I was considering the idea that my housemate stole my card and did this, but that's not possible: one of the companies gave me the IP address used to place the order when I called them, and it was some (undoubtedly virus-infected) computer in Cedar Rapids, Iowa (I'm nowhere near there), so that can't be it. So why? This makes no sense.
