FRAUD



Well yesterday I went to London,
 I didn't wear this outfit but this was from the day before,
So  thought I would show you these new EBAY shorts.
They are brand new and came with tags, from Topshop and cost me £14.99.
I love them so much and I think they will be perfect for summer :)

So on to the title of my post...
when I was in London yesterday, 
I went to a cash point to print off a statement,
and saw that I only had £46.89 in my account,
 which of course was a bit of a shock.
I went into the nearest one of my bank, 
and they realised that I had had a case of Internet Fraud.
I have had £300 taken from my account from four companies, 
one called '02 BUYNET ONLINE', second 'V-STORE ONLINE'
and two other phone companies, I hadn't heard of.
If you have internet banking then please please please check yours now,
and if you have been targeted like any of the 16,000 
that it has been said to have happened to, then call your bank immediately,
as the transactions from the fraud will continue until you block them.
I have had to chop my card up, freeze all my account and 
will not be able to access my money until next friday.
So basically my posts may not exist for the next week due to complete
confusion over what's going on with my police investigation.

Anyway guys, posts on my most recent buys (before the fraud)
will be coming soon :)

Hi! Sorry to hear about your card fraud. I got scammed on eBay a few years ago and it makes you more aware. Great blog, I would love you to check mine out and maybe 'follow' if you like it! Lou x

Those shorts are seriously amazing :)

I'd be so gutted if that happened to me - what have they said about getting your money back?

Hope it all works out!

How cute are you?! Those shorts are adorable, you always find great bargains Pip.

Sorry to hear about your banking woes. I once checked my account to find £290 had been taken out by a company in the Phillipines. Lucky enough, my bank believed that I had no dealings in the Phillipines, lol. Hope it gets sorted out for you, my love.

That is terrible, hope you get it sorted, those shorts really suit you! xx

Claire said...

oh god, i'm typing my internet banking as we speak. but your shorts look amazing! if that's any consolation :(

laurenrhiannon said...

Aww of course I believe you! Don't be thinking that! I just appear to be very unlucky when it comes to post it seems :( I haven't had any 'sorry we missed you..' cards or anything yet! Might be a busy time at the post office :) clever thinking with the proof of postage! did you write an address on it to be sent back to you if I didnt get it? or is there a way to track..i'm not sure what to do! xx

Nav said...

oh gosh, that's really awful! Hope it all get sorted out soon!

Your shorts, however, are lovely
