So I received a text message from my bank this morning to verify a 99 cent appledotcom purchase. It told me to respond with a Y or give them a call. I chose to give them a call.
#1 - I’m pretty sure I don’t have an apple account, and if I do. I NEVER use it.
#2 - I’m already having financial concerns, so I’m trying to avoid pointless spending at all costs.
But #3 - something doesn’t feel right. Before contacting the bank, I check my email. I received 2 new emails from my bank. Both stating that my account has now reached zero dollars. Oh great.
I’m not exactly sure what I expected to see, when logging into my bank account. But it certainly wasn’t this …
96 different charges! 96!
The transaction charges ranged from 99 cents all the way up to $99.99.
The grand total: $4,426.69
Somebody clearly was bored this morning to try 96 times!
And why my first reaction is to laugh is beyond me. But our God is so good and what else can I do? We all know who is REALLY behind these attacks.
The transactions were immediately reversed and removed. A new debit and pin are on their way.
The bank teller, who i had the pleasure speaking with this morning was even abit taken back.
I told her I tried counting the transactions while waiting for support, but she came on just as I got to 35.
We had a good laugh at the absurdity. And everything got resolved.
But all humor aside, clearly the person behind doing this is troubled. We know who our direct enemy is. But we also know He uses people as pawns.
So please say a little prayer for those who are caught up in corruption. Our time here is so very short. I pray that their stubborn stony hearts crack wide open. I pray the Lord’s message of salvation sets them free. May the chains of bondage and deception that bounds them be officially broken. And may they live their lives in integrity and peace.
I pray this in sweet redeeming name of Yeshua. Our Precious Jesus Christ. Thank you, Lord.
Thank you and God Bless!
