Who the hell makes donations to Christian Aid UK using a stolen credit card?

Well, the fucker who managed to swipe my VISA card number, that's who. Over the last two days, (s)he spent $9.45 at a UK restaurant I don't know, $5 at another UK store the name of which I can't even remember, and gave $80-odd to Christian Aid UK. What a weird set of priorities for a thief. (Or maybe not, though $80 seems a little low for full-fledged redemption.)

Anyway, the account (which I've had for donkey's years) is now closed, and the charge-dispute process is underway, and the credit union is sending me a new card from a new account. So that's another 16-digit number to commit to memory. More annoying than anything else.

Okay, that's the oddest chain of credit card theft purchases I've ever heard of.

That's completely weird. It also sucks with a great suckitude. Don't worry about the charges--they'll waive them. Still, a huge PITA to have this happen, especially away from home.

Perhaps your latent second personality is disposed toward charities.

That's not good. I hope it works out okay in the end.
