    im upset not with the diet
    someone has done fraud on me for a couple of grand using my card details, i only saw one transaction come up on my online banking, i called my bank straight away and was told other transactions have been made, i asked if they could put a stop to it, they said they couldnt due to them having to find out where they orginated from, i have to call fraud line tomorrow and talk to them, im gutted angry upset, all my plans up in smoke :(

    Hi kenshin,

    That is awful!!!

    Can't understand why the bank can't take action right away when you have informed them?

    I thought that is what they are suppose to do!

    Kens, that is awful! :(

    But - I believe you will find you are protected under some kind of insurance held by the bank? I am not sure how it works here in the UK, but mom had this happen recently, the bank spotted it (well done them), and she has not been held accountable for the money - it has all been returned to her account. I hope its the same for you.

    SOrry you have to deal with this, and I hope it ends the same way for you, with all your money back. If not, thats not fair!

    Good luck - do keep us posted.
    Theiving little boogers out there. Hate the lot of them.

    Hi Ken,

    Something like this does make you think about your own security and puts you on red alert!

    It is a sickening thing to have happened and unfortunately seems to be very common as I am sure we all know of someone who this has happened to if not themselves.

    Hopefully you will get it all sorted quickly and your confidence will be restored!

    Love Mini xxx

    it happened to me, it was through paypal, they tried taking money from my bank, luckily the two smaller amounts they tried to take were queried by the bank, so when they tried to take the third (large) amount it was declined. Hope you get it all sorted, you'll soon have your faith restored, I still use paypal and shop online etc etc, dont let the minority spoil things for you x

    I had my details nabbed at an ATM, but my bank spotted it straight away and rang me up. I got all the money back.

    Hope it all gets sorted out for you quickly as that's a lot of money to be missing.

    Ken you are doing very well weight wise...you will not find it that long now until you are at goal!

    This is a happy occasion for you tinged as it is with the news of the theft from your account which is absolutely horrible and very upsetting but you have done everything possible and within your power today to deal with this and there is nothing more you can do until tomorrow.

    Tomorrow will sort things out and I really can not see why your account will not be reimbursed.


    So try and chill out and enjoy the rest of your day.:hug99:

    Speaking from experience and as an emotional eater myself, if you let yourself get too down about this you are in danger of sabotaging your diet. So be aware of your mood and how you are feeling and try and re-focus your mind back on your goals for yourself.


    Love Mini xxx

    If this is in reference to the theft of your money...?

    The first thing to remember is that it is not personal...these kind of people don't give a second thought to what they do to others ...it is all about them and what they can get for themselves.

    They don't have a conscience. If they did they could not possibly do what they do.

    At the end of the day people like that are in the minority, but cause a lot of havoc and grief.

    The majority of people are good and care about others and wish them no harm.
