    was abruptly shut off with no warning because of something like this. My credit card company thought they spotted something suspicious for $1 which was in fact a legitimate purchase I made. They started rejecting everything, which included my cellphone bill. I was waiting for a call and didn't even realize for hours that my phone was dead.

    Needless to say, I was pissed.

    I'm realizing I'm very vulnerable to getting hacked. I've been using my debit card for everything because I've been tracking my spending that way for the past year. And I have all my bills on auto-pay out of the same account, which I keep a lot of money in because I'm very absent minded and slip up otherwise. But I can see that I'm going to have to rethink everything I'm doing.
