So I got this email today. From some company called “Rover”. A company I never heard of before today, don’t use, don’t have the app. About dropping in on an animal named “Ella”…in Brooklyn, NY.
I live in Pennsylvania. I don’t have a pet name Ella I never had an account with these people. But it came to my email address. So I sent a request for a password reset and I don’t know whose credit card is being used, it’s not one of mine thank God. But it’s my email and name.
My name and email…obviously not my address. I have other screenshots which are not my phone numbers or my credit card. And in the payment section it’s somebody else’s name.
So I’m hanging onto my screenshots and I called up the company Rover and got a customer service person on the other side of the country. Their fraud department is on it now and my email and name have been removed from an account I never had. I can’t speak to whose credit card is being used.
I checked all my bank accounts I have no Rover charges. But my name and email have been removed from this account. Oh and I also just changed all my passwords.
It pays to look at all the emails and keep tabs on your accounts. I am always leery this time of year, because it was a couple of years ago this time when I went into a store in Exton I had never been to before to buy something and then next day someone went on a spending spree with my card. I was never sure if it was someone behind me in line who saw my card numbers, or there was some kind of a cloning mechanism on the card reader machine. But lesson learned. The second time it happened was with Grub Hub or Door Dash. (I forget now.) At that time someone ordered themselves a ridiculously expensive vacuum cleaner on me, only it got delivered to my home before someone could change the delivery address or get it from my porch.
I have redacted addresses and other data on posted screenshots because who knows? Rover has all the data. They were extremely helpful once we got past no I don’t have a pet that name and I don’t live in nor have I ever visited the Flatbush area of Brooklyn, NY.
Ho Ho Ho never a dull moment!
