Caution - swearing

Bloody on-line bloody credit bloody agencies that bloody shut their bloody phone lines just after I bloody get bloody stuck in the bloody on-line bloody process of getting my credit report! And bloody computers that aren't working at bloody CIFAS Protective Registration Service so that I have to bloody post the forms to them. And bloody people who bloody well use other people's bloody credit card details to bloody well open other store accounts and bloody well buy things!!!

The fraud department of my credit card company have had several long phone calls with me and the transactions they have spotted are being stopped.
The invoice from <company 1> includes the delivery address and phone number (for the person using the card?) - I guess the police will love that one :)))
The parcel from <company 2> which wasn't delivered should now go back to them.
The delivery from <company 3> which my neighbours took in is being collected on Saturday - not my style of suit at all.

*big sigh*
It's all so frustrating and time consuming. I seem to have been on the phone to various people all day since I got back to London.

Hope your day was more productive than mine.
