Please Pray! Fraud &/or Identity Theft

We have had someone take money out of our account fraudently. Please pray. When I talked to a friend about it, she said that we were the THIRD person at my husband's work to have this happen to them. Now, I'm wondering if there isn't a breach in Acrisure (sp?) the company that handles their payroll.

I do not know that for sure, but when three people at the same company have overseas charges on their account, I can't help but wonder. I also can't help but mention it knowing that the "powers that be" at big companies often wait until it's too late for a consumer to take action before they mention any kind of a breach or problem.

Thanks for your prayers for us and my husband's co-workers.

Amy, I had the same thing happen to me 2 months ago. Someone in Bolivia tried to charge a plane ticket on my debit card. I have Life Lock and they called me. The bank cancled my card and issued me another one.
Ps. my step children are looking fordward to meeting you, Gary, ant the kids one day. All we did was talk about ya'll on Easter.

I Love You

Lord, I ask that You will watch over Amy and her family. May this situation be resolved quickly and effectively. May everything work out so nothing is lost for any of the families involved. And if it is with the company, may they make it right. Amen.

Bill (Dad)-I'm so glad you were able to prevent the charges on your side. It's so frustrating that more & more people are having to deal with this today.

Melody, Luke, & everyone else-Thanks so much for your kind words & prayers. They were much appreciated.
