    has anyone had experience freezing their credit report?

    I had a strange problem tonight. Around 7:00 pm I received an email from Best Buy. Someone opened a Best Buy credit card in my name, ordered a washer and dryer on my account, and are having it delivered to an address that is not my address. I called Best Buy. I learned that because the order was placed in a store, they could not cancel. I could not cancel the order online. I went to the store, and they also could not cancel. They said I should come back there and try again tomorrow.

    Upsetting. I noticed they have the thing scheduled to be delivered Wednesday. I decided to change the delivery date, since that's the only option I have on the account to change anything. The latest date I could select on the thing was March, so I picked the last day of March at 8am in the morning. haha. Maybe this will inconvenience and delay them enough for me to get this order cancelled.

    I went online to all 3 credit bureaus. I had to pay to freeze my account on one. I did the free "lock" on the other. The third one was free to freeze. Hopefully this will slow down the identity thieves. Wish I had frozen it a long time ago.

      @wyverndust I had someone use my email to order a few things a few years ago, too. They even tried to get huffy with me when I confronted them.
      I hope Best Buy will make things right and cancel the whole thing and freeze the card.

      @wyverndust You have an address, consider reporting it to the authorities.

        @Airos my boyfriend told me to do the same. If I can't get it resolved through the store, I will go to the authorities. It happened in the city of Dallas, and I was not really wanting to deal with the police in that city, if avoidable.

      @wyverndust That's awful! If you have Norton antivirus, you can get free identity theft protection and list your cards there to get them monitored. That's wrong of best buy not to let you cancel it from your own card. They have to by law allow cancellations three days after a purchase, if I remember right. I hope it gets cleared up.

      @wyverndust Wow. So sorry to hear about that! If you have the address where the appliances were to be delivered, you could contact your local police department and let them sort things out. Then bring a copy of the police report to Best Buy. Maybe that will get their attention. Good luck, and let us know what happens.

    Our dog may need surgery on his knee. Mostly posting this here so that the spammers don't get to have the most recent entry. Friday morning, I have to take the dog for sedation xrays. That's going to cost about $500, depending on how many xrays they need to take. He's a hyper dog so I can't imagine him simmering down and staying still for xrays. So worried about him.

      @wyverndust So sorry! What's your dog's name? Will keep a good thought for him -- and you.

        @taylor we decided to take him in today for a regular exam because he seemed better. My partner decided we should wait for the xrays to see if the problem clears up on it's own. I wish I had the money for the xrays but I don't. Once I have the money, I will just do them on my own if I need to. He is still limping and his knee goes out when he pees or walks for a while

          @wyverndust Does he have somewhere outside where he can lie down and rest/sleep in the grass or dirt? Having contact with the earth and its magnetic energy is one way that animals in the wild can heal themselves.

      @wyverndust Try glucosamine powder on his food. It's good for joint problems. When my dog blew her knee the vets were wanting to do knee surgery and we just didn't have the money. A friend suggested a holistic vet and after we saw him it won't be likely we'll go to a regular vet again. He suggested glucosamine powder on her food and it helped a lot. Sometimes you could tell she was a little stiff, but she was up and playing in no time once we started that.

        @hercat66 thank you I will look for that powder. I have the pills for my own knee but I was hesitant to give him the pills. I didn't know there was a powder. thank you again!

    I am struggling to remember old usernames and find old friends - I remember a really interesting and intelligent person who posted on the original site about running on the beach, cooking, his partner, and loads of great bird photos. I learned a lot about birds from this person. I think he had a goal to identify a certain number of birds and maybe he even kept a numbered list of all the birds he saw and identified.

    I can't believe that I forgot his user name. I don't know if he is back, but he was one of my favorite people that I subscribed to. Does anyone remember him, and is he back on 43things.com?

    It's kind of like finding Pokemon on Pokemon go
