Today, I managed to pay my rent in full for once. My bank called me on suspicion of fraud. FML
I agree, your life sucks 6 424
You deserved it 820

OP here! Dunno if I'll count as "verified" because I submitted the FML without signing up for an account. But it's all good! I'm actually glad that my bank is so thorough as I've had my debit card stolen before. This time around I was using Venmo which apparently isn't a certified merchant, or something? So they just had me confirm my personal details and it went through. Mainly FML because I was stressed that I was paying rent last minute (my own fault). All in all, everything went swimmingly, and I have added faith in my bank's ability to protect my money!

How can it be fraud, if you have nobodies credentials?

Rough OP!! Good luck..

I feel for you and hope something changes in your life for the good, soon. I also worry about what happened to put you in this situation. Now I'm sad :(

Aww thank you! After the payment went through and I got over the stress of the whole thing I was really happy that my bank is so thorough.

Good for you, and good for your bank. They are vigilant to monitor for out-of-the-normal spending.

Once I got over the initial stress and was able to complete my rent payment, I was feeling happy about the security as well!

You must be paying rent in SF.

This doesn't even make sense.
