I can see someone not noticing the charges like that for a month until their next billing cycle.. but it says that there was 25 payments in the last 2 months alone which hints towards this happened for more than 2 months.
Nobody to blame but herself.. well, her kid mostly but she should check her statements. This is why credit companies will always send out paper statements so she can't use this pathetic excuse. It's always someone else's fault these days.
I've also pondered the same thing. Then I think about anti-virus companies complaining that MS is offering their free security solution through Win Update to people that don't have virus software installed. I despise large companies, their lawyers, and inability to work for the greater good. basterds. All of them.
You see? This is all a ploy to get us out of the recession! They are giving hard working people overtime to keep the website up and rollin'! and on the flip side, overtime to take it down. Couple that with law enforcement and INTERPOL hunts, JOBS FOR ALL!
I used to work in a coal burning power plant as a system tech.
I should have taken some pictures. Sometimes the coal dust was an inch or two thick. We had to change the lifecycle program just for this location because no matter how much we cleaned the machines, they die premature due to overheating or some other filth related cause.
That guy is complaining it's slow on a system that is barely over minimum specs and has less power than my sub $200 netbook.
Thankfully I work in IT for a living and deal with this idiocy daily.
I will follow suit.
Google Maps always tells me to drive the wrong way down one-ways here in Saskatchewan.
I will sue! I will ignore the fact there are cars driving straight at me. Because Google Maps tells me to drive this way, which means everyone else is wrong. Right?
Oh wait... I'm in Canada. I can't sue anything. My only hope is America annexs Canada and then I can sue anything and everything.
Imagine if a tourist just walked up and flashed an authority figure.
They'd probably draw and shoot them in the face right there. They would probably serve time in prison for looking at the boobies and not shooting the person.
I love it. Classic stuff.
And the money?
I thought America was broke? Bailing out the auto companies and spending billions on Healthcare.
Wait they will just print more money. My bad. Have at 'er. Recession again? Here we come!
Flameproof helmet please.
Most companies probably despise having these types of items leaked. (and by most, I mean all)
But to think they would sit around and let him use their service even when he posted PayPal confidential information?
Basically they will probably say they made a mistake, but their goal has been completed. I doubt he will use PayPal for this type of service again.
The reason social engineering is so successful in this era is because technology can be acquired so easily.
Mostly everyone has a computer in their house whether they know how to use it or not.
I could probably write a virus and call it "cr4zy h0rs3 pr0n!" and still infect thousands.
Renting? or buying
Buying a DRM laced game is only renting it for a period of time. What happens when those DRM servers go kaboom or are discontinued?
I have old vintage games still like Total Annihilation, etc. I can still play these.
Shame on your Ubisoft for eventually making ACII disappear into nothingness when half the population can't play the game when you discontinue "support".
Not so loud but anyone thinking that they can make all the noise they want, not get in trouble, at all hours of the night is stupid.
That's like me firing up a chainsaw and revving it all night because it's my human right.
I say Fight fire with fire. They should move their washing machine against the wall, make it off balance, and wash bricks all night. Because you know, it's their human right to wash whatever they want in their washing machine.
Don't tell anyone
