ANOTHER AMAZON FRAUDULENT CHARGE, or was it?

Just back from three great weeks on an Overseas Adventure Travel trip to Chile and Brazil, Don was checking our credit cards charges, and found a ringer! Amazon had charged us $23 on VISA for a sale in September, when we were far away in the jungle in Brazil. (We are very sensitive about these fraudulent charges; while we were in Cuba in 2012, someone racked up $1700 in charges on our Amex card for Play Station cards from Amazon.) Call the credit card company right away, I said on this Saturday afternoon. Don’t wait! There might be more! So he did. And this is what he found…

The very helpful clerk was able to find the record right away. He said, it’s from a boat. Were you on a boat? And we remembered, the last week in August we were on a boat, the Otter, sailing up the Amazon River, and as we left the boat, in early September, we had a laundry bill and a bar bill that we paid with our VISA because the Amex card didn’t work. And that’s the moral of this story: there is more than one Amazon. Not all vacation Amazon charges are frauds.

    Wanted to wish you and Donald a Happy Channukah before the last night was over. Trust you have been enjoying the fall and that your house was not hit with any rain damage. Kevin and I are both fine and keeping busy. The weather here in the Boston area has been a mild 60’s for the past week.All this because of El NiƱo!
