What are you doing?

Just got home late last night from 2 weeks in Cozumel. Checked my voice mail this morning, had a message from American Express. We only use AE for Costco. I called them back, and it turns out someone tried to make an unusual purchase, which AE denied and wanted confirmation from me.

The attempted purchase was for $37.99. I asked what it was for, and the AE rep said it was an escort service! Cracked me up! I told him we'd been in Mexico for the last two weeks, and my card was in the hotel room safe all that time, never used. Bless them for being so vigilent.

DH's question was, what kind of escort service would only cost $37.99? :roflmao:

Hmm, on second thought, how would DH know how much an escort service cost?...

You don't have to know how much an escort service costs to know that $37.99 isn't nearly enough.

I watch a lot of crime shows on TV and they often deal with this subject. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

We're on our way to the Scottish Walk in Olde Towne, the historic downtown of the city where we live. Here's an article about last year's event: http://hamptonroads.com/2013/12/2013...happy-hogmanay

Must have been on Craigslist, or Cheapescorts.com.

Or on Andy's crime shows.

You appear to know a lot more about it than I do.
