Thanks so much! I will call them first thing tomorrow.
Protection and hacking - it occured to me that I got a letter and call from Natinal Magazine Exchange and did order some of their magazines - good bargain. I wonder if they are hacking into my account (like an idiot, I gave them my debit card # - I feel like a total nimbus, never did that before, don't know why I did it this time, except that I thought they were Publishers Clearing House, which is a reputable company). Ugh.
Is it possible that the bank shut down my accounta to protect it against them?
I did go online and looked up National Mag. Exchange. There's all sorts of bad reports about them, but nothing about them crashing bank accounts.
I've learned my lesson. It always has been my policy never to give out any information over the phone. I've re-learned it.
Will let you know what happens tomorrow. Fortunately, there was very little money in my account. My only fear is that they racked up charges on my debit card (bank does not stop paying out even if no funds are available).
Funny thing is - I have never used my card once. I pay in cash only.
My jet-black furrie Jonathan has just jumped into my lap, telling me it will be all right. So I guess it will (fingers crossed).
