I'm just wondering, because somebody did that to me today - my debit card must have fallen out of my pants pocket while leaving my car, and I spent a night or two searching for it (as I suspected it may have been somewhere inside my house). Earlier today I checked my online bank statement, and wasn't overly-surprised to discover that somebody had purchased $20 worth of gasoline from a Speedway 30 minutes from my house. I was in a college class while the transaction occurred, and I typically don't buy gas there but every month or so.
I called my bank and had the card canceled, and then contacted Speedway. The person who picked up the phone at the station said they'd be able to go through their surveillance tapes as soon as the transaction was authorized for the full amount; I'm not worried about getting my money back. In fact, I'm a bit amused by the entire ordeal, as purchasing gas on a stolen card seems like the absolute most idiotic thing you could possibly do. Not only did they fuel up in a lot that's mostly likely under surveillance, but they paid for the transaction INSIDE the store, meaning that both their license plate number and their face is going to be on camera.
So I'm sort of wondering what's going to happen to this ******** tomorrow or Sunday when they get busted for being a big dummy.
