Great way to start the weekend

I have been getting emails from a bank where I don’t have an account. Low balance alerts, overdraft alerts, wrong security answer, etc, etc. The emails were filling my email box daily.

I called without giving my information to see if they could flag the account to change the email address. No. Close your email account and get a new one. No. Not happening. Go into a local branch and they can help you, but, sorry, we have no branches in your state. Yes, so helpful.

I started marking the emails as spam. They sent me the account owner’s name and last 4 digits of the owner’s social security number. Oh, that’s secure. Plus, the name is nothing like mine, so why choose my name as your email address???

I got notification that I should have received my ATM card by now, and to reply to the email if I didn’t. So, I replied. Apparently, that seemed to have some effect. I got an email first thing this morning that I had changed the email address in the account!

What a great way to start the day! I hope they stop emailing now.
