After being stranded on the freeway and having my credit card rejected, VirginMoney got in contact with me the following day. Infuriated by the AboutUs site, I had gone to my domain registrar and made my domain private. However, VirginMoney decided that the transaction looked odd, and as they were unable to contact me about it, put a block on my card. Thus, I was stranded on freeway due to stupid AboutUs, my reaction to it, and the zealousness of VirginMoney. I have to say, I’m sure I’ve done transactions that seem more dodgy than a $10 payment to godaddy.com – but who knows? Maybe they thought I was paying cash to some kind of incest fansite… It’s good that they are on to this stuff – my former boss’s bank didn’t contact him until his credit card was overdrawn by a phisher to the tune of $15,000 – but I really could have done without it this time.


My way on the freeway

    no…it was a black cat which cracked the mirror, spilt the milk and took the lord’s name in vain.
