Make your own d@#n money

Just out of curiosity, what does one buy at a Sams Gas Station for $99? My debit card got "compromised," as the lady from Wells Fargo said. (So did my little brother's - so if your last name starts with a "B" and you use Wells Fargo, make sure you look at your account.) It was used twice before I noticed it on Saturday morning. Here are the charges:

Do you think they fill up the tank and then buy a bunch of beer and cigarettes? Or is there somebody in Glendora with a lifetime supply of Fritos and bean-dip? Maybe twinkies and fried burritos? Just wondering.

I'm waiting to hear back from the "fraud officer" to find out if/when I get my money refunded. I keep meaning to stop by the police station so I can file a claim that they will send to the Glendora, CA Police. Not that anything would come of it, but it would make me feel better.

We had ours charged three times for the same amounts! If I spent that much money at a gas station, I would have bought a lifetime supply of fountain Dr. Pepper in styrofoam cups. I bet that's what they did.

I just contested two more charges this morning (on my snow-day off). I, too, am wracking my brain as to what they would spend a hundred bucks on.

Jerks. I'm so sorry!

I only buy gas and sunflower seeds at gas stations. If forced to confess, sometimes the trucker in me demands a bag of pork skins, but I can usually keep that under control.

Luckily gas prices have come down or you may not have noticed it at all...other than the fact it was purchased in Glendora, CA, wherever THAT is.

I know someone who spends over a $100 to fill the tank....The bigger the ride....you get it.

sorry about that - sucks

I looked it up - gas is $1.96 a gallon at that gas station. Unless they bought diesel. But it is California - does anyone drive a diesel there?

When I was in college I got a call from my credit card company asking if I just spent $2000 on airline tickets on AeroMexico. Seriously?

My Sam's gas station only has gas, no store or attendant. Not sure about everywhere else, though. I hope you get your money back soon!
