More ID Theft BS

Recently I found out that yet another "convenience" check from my credit card had been bounced back when the ID theft occurred. That check got sent to collections and now I have to fill out a forgery affidavit, have it notarized and send it in to the collections agency. Today, I found out that it happened again at Kinkos. That makes Applebee's Restaurants, Kinko's, and an unknown T-Mobile dealer (not one of their actual stores) three companies that apparently take checks without asking for ID.

Since I lost a lot of time, but no money, I don't think there's much I can do about the T-Mobile dealer, but I think it's reasonable to take Applebee's and Kinko's to small claims court to recoup the cost of the notary public. If they can't be bothered to ask for ID, I don't see why I should be penalized for being the victim of crime. First, though, I'll just ask for them to reimburse me.

Brief catch up for the week: I've been working long hours, so I haven't been in touch with too many people. elysive stayed with me for a couple of days while here on a trip from Chicago. That was nice. Also has pdx42 and _sister_madly_ over for one night. We don't get together enough. They live south of Lake Oswego and I work long hours. Damn.

Also, I'm leaving tonight for a wine tour with synthcat and ntnrmlgirl. We'll be back on Sunday. Maybe I'll learn a thing or two about wine?
