deannie: I work some times....but I become those boots I saw

Spivey: I didn't realize how tight my money was until this month. I woke up at the beginning of the month broke. LOL. Actually, someone charged almost $3000 to my debit card. It took almost the whole month for the bank to return the funds to my account.

deannie: been there...but it was not for that much.....I work in corrections and when a criminal happen to me or any one I know it make me mad

Spivey: I was devastated, deannie. My social security and pension checks had just been deposited. The purchases were all made in England, Italy and another foreign country. Imagine, ver $500 worth of shoes, and a tailor for over $400. I want the bank to track down who it was. I don't like to harm people, but that was just mean and I don't feel inclined to forgive. Of course, I am not using my debit card at any more little stores. I will use cash like I used to.
