I did something stupid

Morning all

Sun is shinning but its cold and windy but at least the washing is getting a good blow through.  I did something stupid at the beginning of the month and ordered some Raspberry Ketone tablets from a site that was being advertised on Facebook, then I realised it was a scam.  So rang the bank and asked for any future payments requested from this company not to be honored well guess what yes!  £100.00 taken from our account yesterday.  I phoned the bank and they said I would have to let the payment go completely through and then report to the fraud department.  I have made a complaint to the bank stating that I had requested no more payment to be authorised to this company but not sure that I will get anywhere, so I am left feeling completely stupid.

On a good note went to Rachel's yesterday afternoon and had a really good time, she still has not come down from cloud 9 about her DT Spot with Crafters Companion, bless her.

I manged to make three cards yesterday just for the sheer pleasure of it, one is for my sister who is ill in hospital at the moment, I managed to speak with her yesterday and she sounds really poorly, she is hoping to go home next week with oxygen and carer's in place but says she is not budging from the bed until she feels she is well enough to go home and good for her I say.

Am only show casing one of my cards for now as I have to put sentiments on the other two still and will get onto that this afternoon, after Sarah has finished with the computer as her job has now gone to advert and she is completing the application form today, thank goodness they have only advertised it internally and have a short date for completion.

Will be back later to do some blog hopping so
Bye for Now

Love Alison

  13. Oh Alison, don't be too hard on yourself-these scams are really professional and like you say you had already informed the bank. You should fight the bank all the way on this, if you tell them not to honour a payment then they should be your agents and do what you instructed! Hope it's all sorted soon!
    Thank you for your lovely message on my blog lovely, it's great that you've been inspired to sew again-I've been so pleased with teaching myself and how much fun I've had!
    I really hope your sister is feeling better soon lovely, sending you my love,
