I am a big believer in karma ... I do my best to treat people the way I want to be treated ... the golden rule, right? Unfortunately there are people out there that don't care if karma comes to bite them in the @ss!

Unfortunately I had my first run in with some one of this ilk recently at a show.

I accepted a stolen credit card for a purchase at the junior league holiday shops a couple of weeks ago.

I did not process at point of sale and therefore did not find out that there was a problem until I got home and the credit card was declined. I tried again a few more times over the next couple of days, tried the phone number they had given me - only to be greeted by a fax machine...then tracked down another number for the name on the card using google white pages.

On my third try I managed to reach the individual only to be told what I had begun to suspect...her card had been stolen...most likely by someone who worked for her!

unfortunately for both of us I did not remember what the person looked like who used the card - but I take heart in knowing that karma is headed her way!

That STINKS!!!! Well what goes around comes around. She may have gotten away with this but something else will NOT go her way in the future! I sure hope she gets caught! I am in the league down here. So sad to hear the shops that work with the league are being targeted. I guess it can happen anywhere, but seriously, AT A FUNDRAISER!?? That's just even worse.

that really is low, to use a stolen card at a fundraiser - but I suppose she guessed (rightly) that you wouldn't have big-store security. Let's hope the sales fairy smiles on you so you earn more than you've lost.
