      Thank goodness it was a legitimate charge.

      Just so you all know, Visa had a security breach a couple of weeks ago, so definitely keep an eye on your credit/debit accounts.

      Wow- So glad to hear it was a valid charge!
      I try not to get caught up in these things either-- but it is a good reminder of how easily things can happen and that we should really pay close attention to all of our accounts.

        That's great that it was a valid charge, but why would it say "PAYPAL"? ? ?

          Long story, but the TA for our HM had to have someone run it from a different account because it kept getting declined for being over the $5k/day limit (I used to bitch about chase's strictness on this, but now I get it! ) She did verify that it was out of CA... I just did not know to look for that or for that exact amount so it freaked me out, especially after hearing about all the "worm" crap.

          Btw, anyone know if that "worm" actually did anything today?? I haven't watched the news...

          *EDIT* Here is an update from CNN.com No problems so far as April Fools' computer worm awakens - CNN.com

          Looks like we're ok! Biggest impact will just be on network traffic... phew!

                Ya the Visa breach was a while ago. Our bank just replaced everyones stuff. Which was kind of nice, but we didn't have any warning so that sucked.

                Jaime I'm so glad its legit and you're having a HM!!!
