So, I got a phone call from my credit card company the other day wondering if I was in Brazil, because a recent transaction had gone through in Brazil with my credit card.
The answer was a clear 'no' and the credit card company and I went over the other transactions (all mine) and canceled my card and re-issued a new card with a new number.
I don't really care who tried to be me and buy something abroad...more curious to me is what they were buying in Brazil???
Hopefully it was more than a pound of brazilian coffee, or a handful of quartz.
I'd much rather find out they were trying to buy a quartz mine, although I don't think my credit limit would have covered that.
Maybe it was something as simple as a hotel stay in a fine Rio de Jeneiro hotel or for a tourist company to provide a tour across the Brazialan highlands or on the Amazon river.
Carnaval has passed so it doesn't have anything to do with that...maybe someone bought a lifetime of tickets to watch soccer games in Maracanã Stadium.
If only I could know.
