I had no idea who this was, so I googled and there is a big thing going on with people getting this charge. There is a huge Reddit thread https://www.reddit.com/r/Advice/comm...m_source=share on it.

    So I had to go dispute the charge. Since it was on my old card I don't have to get a new card, and they locked the old number so no new charges can flow to my new card. Anyone else get hit?
    I checked everything but nothing. Thanks for bringing it up though, or I wouldn't have even heard about it to know to look just in case....I'm horrible at looking at my accounts unless I need to...it's a horrible practice and I should change my ways but that's too much work lol

    Thanks for the info. I didn't see anything as of yesterday but will be checking and making sure it doesn't happen.

    ugh guys, I found out yesterday that my mom TRULY believes that the forehead temperature thermometers are memory erasing devices.

    Ugh, I'm so sorry. I don't really understand how a whole generation of people (for the most part) bought into all of this and threw away what they knew their entire lives. Obviously younger people believe it, but I think they are more in it just to be violent assholes, but so many people that are boomers just bought it hook line and sinker. Maybe someone here that is a boomer could explain why it was such a popular group think idea for that group.

    If my dad were still alive I almost guarantee you that he would have been at the Capitol insurrection.

    I have theories! Up until December of 1987 there was a federal law called the fairness doctrine. If I went on the airwaves (TV or Radio) saying President RBW eats babies. RBW was guaranteed equal time to rebut the nasty rumor. That great and glorious defender of freedom R. Reagan got rid of the fairness doctrine opening the door for Rush Lamebrain and all of his colleagues to lie and lie and lie. And no one could rebut them with their audience. You could go on someone else show and try to tell your side of the story, but you couldn't get to the dittoheads. At about the same time, the internet really took off and of course any one could start posting anything they wanted there too. No matter how stupid.

    I used to be a free speech absolutest after all no matter how crazy the guy on the street corner passing out flyers is, there's a limit to how many people he can convince, and sane people can undo his damage. Well crazy got a great big megaphone to yell through and the boomers were raised on media that you could pretty much trust. Sure the president could and did occasionally lie to people, but there was a limit to what random crazies could do. So the whole Greatest and Boomer cohorts were primed to drink in crazy like it was their job. And unless we get a new Fairness Doctrine we won't be able to bring them back. The good thing is, they are by definition gullible, and therefore, we may be able to deprogram them, but not going to lie. I think it'll be tough because who among us has that kind of power and who really knows the truth?

    Were there wackados on the TV machine? Yes, but no matter what was said about someone or something any FCC licensed station had to present opposing views and you'd see a whackjob pop up there but he didn't get to rule the airwaves. Johnny Carson had a recurring bit about the phenomenon. May I introduce Floyd R Turbo with an opposing view. Imagine Faux News having to put a sane person on the air every time one of their crazies spoke!

    I was wondering if someone would bring that up. That's my theory as well...I remember when the first Fox News station popped up in our local area a couple of years after that. I feel like I have nothing nice to say though here lately, so I let someone else say it.

    I've never heard anything like this before. What purpose would that serve? Someone watches too much Men in Black.

    Yeah I have no idea. She's also obviously against the vaccine, is mad I'm on the waitlist, and thinks celebrities are eating babies for their skincare.

    Eating babies for skin care? Does she mean like stem cells? That's a new one to me.

    This whole small charge scam from CoLoadTest.com is getting bigger and bigger. I am wondering why they aren't getting shut down by the credit card processing people so that they cannot make anymore charges?

    That's so weird. I checked all mine and don't have anything from them, which is lucky considering I get hit by like every breach!
