We live in a neighborhood with a lot of beautifully restored older homes. Some of the homes have not yet been restored and are still rental properties. Sometimes a neighbor forgets they just got out of jail and they trip and fall and land in someone’s house they don’t know and take their things without asking.
Sometimes the Wii, sometimes shampoo, sometimes a little fried chicken from the fridge. But it was just an accident. They thought they were going in their own back window. These places all look the same from the alley.
I suppose it is needless to say at this point, but we have an alarm system.
Several days ago, I paid the bill.
Yesterday, I received a call from a collector.
I had to fax them a record of the transaction from my bank. BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO RECORD OF MY PAYMENT.
They are sorry. They work with computers and sometimes…they just don’t know why, but it does happen.
I will have a response
when they are good and ready in about a week.
To sum up.
The alarm company, whom we pay to protect us from thieves, took our money and is not showing it on our account.
