I always leave my bank account overdrawn and my cellphone bill late just in case someone hacks into either account. Somehow it makes me feel better knowing that they went to all the trouble and they would have to pay first to get anything.
On Monday night I suddenly realized that my cell phone had no service. I checked my wife’s phone and it had no service either. Our neighbors have the same carrier so I checked with them and everything was fine. Uh oh. I knew we weren’t late with our payment so something sinister had happened.
I called AT&T and sure enough, someone had hacked our account and upgraded our phones, rendering our phones useless while they got two new iPhones with our money. They also changed the address to somewhere in the Boston area. Jerks.
We finally got things straightened out but before we did, I called my cell number and the guy answered the phone. I told him his plan was brilliant and kept him on the line for a few minutes. Turns out he thought he was a genius. Then at one point I had my neighbor yell, “We’ve got the address!”, and I yelled back, “Send the team!” and then hung up. Heh, heh, heh.
I hope he soiled himself. Is that wrong?
