2012/08/18: Debit card info stolen
Apparently at some point on Thursday, somebody used my debit card info and spent $170 at Newegg.com. I've phoned up the bank and Newegg, and each of them put together a fraud report (and the bank also cancelled my debit card),1 and I also called the police and got them on the case as well; they got the guy's account number at any rate. The woman at Newegg said that they'd already set up the invoice and whatnot and that it was kind of ambiguous about whether they'd be able to stop it before the item actually shipped, so I'm just keeping my fingers crossed.
And I was just checking to see if I'd have enough money for about $20 worth of games after I paid my current college bills. Now it's ambiguous whether I could afford anything after just one of them ...
1I needed a new card anyway, the magnetic strip seemed to be really scratched to bits.
