Okay, I admit, when I checked the mail tonight and pulled the two credit reports out – then carried them into the house – I was too scared to open them myself. So I waited until my sister got home, and made HER open them up. Turns out —
We’re golden ! 😀
Both of us, perfectly fine. Perfect scores, lovely shiny credit. Absolutely no unauthorized anything – not even any attempts or inquries from any unauthorized outside entity. And I can’t TELL you how relieved I feel right now!
In fact, I’m positively giddy. So giddy, I poured myself some mint bailey’s and chocolate soy milk and I’m going to post not one Friday chapter tomorrow (Friday) but two.
With all the research I’ve been doing, and all the feedback I’ve been getting, I’m completely convinced the phone calls are phishing – and while I’m still going ahead with adding Caller ID to our phones, I’m not worried about these calls. I’ll simply hang up, without saying one word, and file a report online with the FTC after each and every call. Eventually, they’ll stop. And I did learn a lot of valuable information, looking up credit reports, how to get them, how to check them, how to keep an eye on them – I’m better for the unexpected education.
Now I can relax, smile, and just write again! Penman Shipwreck – I’m gonna win you after all 😀
