Gotta love the credit card company. Every once in a while, they decide to put a flag on my account because they don’t like some random set of usages – perhaps there is too much activity (egad!) and they fear fraud. Right now I’m out of the country and they decided to do it again. Whoops, I forgot to warn them I would be travelling. Nice, the onus is on me. And of course, what happens is they claim the merchant is given notification to “call in and verify purchase” but of course, the merchant (as my credit card company likes to call them) simply says “nope.” Or tries again. I don’t believe that the merchant actually sees a “call in” message, but they insist that they do.

It’s really annoying dealing with these people.
