One of the many things I’ve programmed into her is a function to my credit union. To see when a deposit appears. And when it does, my cell phone instantly alerts me. It’s nice to know when I’ve a little more money. Or any money.
So, the other morning, I’m working on the blog, and she makes noise. I investigate. A deposit for a small amount has appeared in my account! Cool.
Wait a minute?
I wasn’t expecting any money. And, it’s not my usual payday, and it’s a small amount…hmmm. Maybe some kind person hit my PayPal link on the blog sidebar? (hint-hint) (It has been known to happen!) So, I check my PayPal account, no dice. No money either. Hmmm.
Then it hit’s me – what if someone compromised my account number and was testing it, waiting for my next disability check to post, then WHOOSH – siphons it all away? Crap.
Next, I contemplate calling my Credit Onion to determine the source of the deposit. But first I need to get worked up and worried. (Remember When in Danger or in Doubt?) There are protocols for such things.
Suddenly it occurs to me. The State of Arizona owed me $25.00 from my income tax filing last month! That’s it!
Nope, not paranoid. Just neurotic.
