I spoke to the company from which the viagra was ordered. It is in fact being shipped to me
I guess I should return it though

The guy said they do it not for the medication itself but someone gets a commission on the order. The order came from a web-site in Italy....

I have a card number stolen a few years ago by someone buying stuff in Australia! Citibank actually called me to confirm charges because it looked weird. They only got away with a few hundred, and I didn't have to pay.

About 6-7 years ago, someone got a Bank of America card in my name and charged up $5k of purchases. I found out when I went to buy a car and was denied financing! After 6 months of work, I got the thing resolved with credit reporting agencies, but Bank of America credit to this day has a record in their computer with my name and SSN showing a "debt" to them, and they're unwilling to remove it.

Speaking of hijacking, anyone consider getting one of these?


SHOCK EJECTOR ANTI-HIJACK / THEFT VEHICLE ALARM SYSTEM
Retrieve your vehicle and cargo within seconds and put the criminal at risk
FEATURES
Long range remote control activation (50-100 metres) after vehicle hijacking takes place. (You stay in control)
System ON, indicated by tale lights
Pre-set timer, immobilizing vehicle approximately 5Km owner to prevent reprisal attack
2ND Timer activates ear-piercing siren from inside vehicle
Opening any of the doors will trigger the 50,000-Volt shock in both front seats
Designed within the framework of the law
-
Shock tested by South African authorities
-
Fully warranted in accordance with the Force manufacturers warranty

ANTI-HIJACK MODE

Once the vehicle has been hijacked the system can be remotely activated the brake lights will come on and stay on to indicating that the system has been activated. After 30 seconds delay the vehicle systems are cut out in two places immobilizing the vehicle and forcing the vehicle to safely and slowly come to a gradual halt

At this time 60 seconds after activation a loud 110-dB ear-piercing siren is triggered within the vehicle forcing the "would be" thief to want to get out of the vehicle
As soon as the "would be" thief opens the door a massive high voltage non-lethal shock will travel through both front seats into his body, forcing the criminal out of the vehicle and into another profession

I don't think you could get out of an Elise with 50,000 volts taking the scenic route through your body. The carjacker would be pretty exhausted by the time somebody came to get him out.

I would be afraid the system would electrocute me, and then a passing Hijacker could just take it.

Not to hijack this plane of thought but have you seen the one that has fireballs shooting out from the car's undersides activated by a button next to the accelerator so that you can quick fry a carjacker? Yowsa!

Wow, zOOmz, that sounds hot! It should also keep the "window washer" panhandlers away from the car too, eh?

I agree with RacyTracy... i'll bet there'd be some crazy trial and you'd get f-ed for trying to protect your possessions.
