If there is something that could be equally as scary as identity theft it could very well be corporate invasion. Don’t let marketing slogans fool you. Big corporations like banks keep everything on you. Anything you’ve done online thru their sites, they have it. I’ve now been the victim of an unauthorized transaction from a bank, reaching into another bank and taking money they were not authorized to take. A sizable amount too.
Talk about a shock to the system this morning when I noticed that I couldn’t go do something because of this transaction. No merit, no call to ask, no nothing. They had information on file and decided to go in and take the money. I called the bank where the funds were withdrawn and they informed me that I can file a dispute and get the funds back. Which I have to wait until monday to do. Immediately after I get them back, I’m going to close that account and move the funds into a new account. An account that will never be used to pay something online. What a drag.
It’s the kind of thing that makes a person want to grab a costume, a weapon and an explosive or two and go rob the bastards that took from you in the first place. Which leads me into today’s choice by default. Defined By What We Steal was written by a group called Big Wreck. They’re not around any more, but they ought to be.
I like the meandering feel going on here. It’s the kind of song that makes you feel like you’re in a daze and aren’t really sure where you’re at. That’s the feeling you get when you’ve been robbed without even being there. Then comes the rage, the anger and the reaction. Which is the intensity that comes in for the chorus and the bridge.
The long trailing ending is probably the allusion to the amount of time its going to take to resolve this and get my money back. ARGH.
Make sure you don’t steal this song if you love, buy it!
Hope your day is going better. And stay away from Bank of America – Thieves!!!
