Foreign fraud

Being defrauded is never a pleasant experience, but it's especially galling if your defrauder is unreachable. And he cheats you to buy petrol. And he does it using a credit card which you haven't used yourself in over six months. Some guy in Israel used a credit card number of mine, and those of six other colleagues, to create fake cards of his own and used them all at the illustrious Israeli establishment, Paz Yellow. Their ridiculously designed site says they are Israel's leading energy company and provide "a diverse, exact and quick response to every requirement related to energy and road services." Road services? Unless they're talking a well-mannered and well-endowed 20-shekel hooker every few miles, I don't see this company in a favourable light. They also have a convenience store chain called Yellow:-

"At Paz, we know just how important it is for you to arrive home."

That's what the creepy paedophile said. Also, Yellow proclaims this:-

"Yellow - the only one in Israel offering you a variety of solutions for meals on the road"

Meal solutions? Have services companies taken over everything?

Speaking of shekels and why I'm using that word in a seemingly sane conversation, some fuel-buying credit card charlatan swiped a fake card with my number for petrol worth 605.5 shekel. Got it rectified (which is also a funny word. Is it another way of saying 'colonoscopy' ? Or anal sex?). You may return to your financially secure lives now.

Rectified mins? Got duDDu back?

Sue your employer. Some important data leakage happening.

I wish we could sue all the time in India. It would be so cool. Then all the Mallika Sherawat types would go bankrupt just by paying mental harassment dues.

Sue the Government Of India. Sambanda illde irOrna kooDa sue maaDbEku heege. Blame India's finance minister for this. Curse the RBI governor for lax secutiry in online transactions. Sari, eno ondu. duDDu vaapas bantu taane?
Aamele, idenu, hosa concept of labels-u?
