“Dear PoP,

This morning at 6:38am, someone managed to pull $500 out of my Capital One checking account at an ATM. This happened despite me being sound asleep with the card in my wallet. The Branch Manager at 650 F St. said I was the 4th customer this morning with a fraud issue (which makes me think there’s been a recent increase in this type of situation) The thing is, I likely wouldn’t have noticed this for a few days if I hadn’t stopped to get cash this morning. Two separate ATMs said I had already hit my daily limit on cash withdrawals, which led to me calling the bank etc.

I hope this doesn’t happen to anyone else, but folks should check their bank accounts just in case.”
