My Identity was Stolen

1About a year ago, our personnel got hacked and anyone that had a security clearance had their most personal information stolen.  The security clearance go back at least 25 years for your background check – every address, every school, all immediate family members, everyone that you know, financial, etc.  It’s very in-depth and almost overwhelming to fill out the information.

All of my personal information was stolen.

We got two years worth of free credit monitoring services.

Last week, I got an alert that there was a change in your credit information and my credit union sent me a new debit card because my card information may have been compromised at a third party location all in the same day.

I only use my debit card at the drugstores and grocery stores.

It turns out that someone in Woodland Hills, CA ran up a $1,000 cable bill using my information and defaulted in payment and the cable company turn it over to collections.

Thankfully, I was talking to a coworker about the situation because she had already gone through something similar and she suggested that I challenge it through the credit bureaus and let them do the heavy lifting since they give them 30 days to prove that I am the person that did the bad.

However, I had to send them a copy of my ID, my Social Security Card and a copy of a utility bill.

The free credit monitoring service only alerts you that there has been a change to your credit and they can advise you as what steps to take next, nothing more.

What a hot mess!

1Back in Sacramento, I used to be a regular Targetholic.  Mom and me use to shop at Target all the time because it use to be right next to Mervyn’s another one of our favorite stores. #ripmervyns.

Yesterday, it was announced that Target is offering a refund in the form of a Target gift card to customers who bought the Fieldcrest’s and Crowning Touch’s Egyptian cotton sheets between August 2014 and July 2016.

-500 thread count Satin-Stitch Damask Egyptian cotton sheets
-500 thread count Geo Pattern Egyptian cotton sheets

File a Claim

As I read the article, I sat in amazement that anyone would go to Target and spend $175 on Egyptian cotton sheets.

I have Egyptian cotton sheets on my bed, I absolutely love the feel of Egyptian cotton sheets but there is no way in the way, I would spend $175 when you can get them way cheaper on Amazon.

Yes, I know about sheet thread count and obviously, the higher the thread count, the better quality of sheet you have but I just can’t at Target spend $175 for sheets. Macy’s yes, Target no.
