Yesterday eBay suspended my account due to fraudulent activity, I had been assured my account information (Credit cards, banking, etc) had not been compromised but to be on the safe side I changed/closed all/any accounts I had that used that username and put a fraud alert on my credit report.
Today, I got a call bright and early that our water heater in our rental burst. Which is ironic because I bought a BRAND NEW one in March of 2007.
Thankfully it is covered by the manufacturer and the store I bought it from, I also have a homeowner's warrant so the worst I would have to come out of pocket for it would be $85.
Craziness. But I am very thankful that these things were caught early and addressed. eBay even told me I shouldn't have to worry about my banking information being compromised but I decided I'd rather be safe than sorry.
Hopefully these things stop happening and its smooth sailing after this.
