I called up t-mobile and thought "I really want that g-phone from google." and ordered it.
I am very proactive about managing my finances and placed a credit card payment for the entire cost of the phone AND current balance, just to be nice and get it out of the way so i don't have to sweat it next month.
I check my bank to see if it cleared and low and behold there is a charge from a pizza hut in louisville kentucky. "Hmmmm" i thought. "I don't recall being in kentucky, and ordering pizza. That's a shitload of pizza ($46.07 worth).
Then it came to me. The only time i had given out my card info was today, over the phone. Everything is on autopay through my CHECKING NUMBERS, the purchase showed the pin ending in my card, and, to top it off... it was within 30 minutes of me calling to make a payment.
The only other time i released my card info over the phone was to pay my gas bill in OREGON.
I called up my bank, canceled the card, called fraud, reversed charges, explained situation.
After further research, i found out t-mobile DOES outsource in kentucky hiring for seasonal jobs. I called the louisville kentucky pizza hut and they said a few people had made deliveries there... but couldn't recall the time and wouldn't give out the info and referred me to corporate headquarters, whom said they would review the situation and call me back and also gave me the district manager's number who is calling me back tomorrow.
"AHA!" i thought, so that confirms, we have a place of business.
I called t-mobile, asked for a supervisor, told them what was up, my suspicions, the time it happened, exact charges, how it coincided with the time i gave out my card and place of business, location, and relation it had to it and they filed an internal ticket.
I chatted with t-mobile to give them the side of the story so they had a record.
I then emailed t-mobile with correspondence letting them know i am keeping records of all correspondence i have with them and letting them know they need to take immediate action or i will climb higher up the chain and will bring means necessary to ensure it is properly resolved and investigated.
In the end I'm not liable for the charges, however, i will have someone's job.
Bitch, hope the free pizza was worth it, cause it's costing you your JOB!
