Listen my children and you will hear,
A tale of woe and of loss.
@warriors_mom, this may interest you

Upon the sad day of the 11 of September, my phone lost service.
A disturbing turn of events to be sure, it was only the beginning of our story.
@warriors_mom Upon arrival to home from work I set out to learn why my phone was cast aside in the digital wasteland. Unfortunately, @mystraighttalk did not return my number back unto thee.
@warriors_mom @MyStraightTalk To my surprise, and @mystraighttalk, we need to talk about your poor customer service, my phone number had been snatched from my feeble grip by none other than Metro PCS. Those rogues and scoundrels!
@warriors_mom @MyStraightTalk Still without a number, the portability service agent felt my pain and told me that the number had been illegal ported to Metro, and that he felt confident he could get it back to me in 24 hours. @mystraighttalk - seriously we need to talk.
@warriors_mom @MyStraightTalk Before I begin my slavish day in the afternoon toiling within the salt mines, I laid myself to my usual nap. Sensing a disturbance within the Force as I slumbered, I checked my emails - where upon the number zero was now taking up residence as my bank balance.
@warriors_mom @MyStraightTalk Unamused, I roused myself and investigated why my bank balance was the same number of morally straight politicians in Congress, I learned that there were purchases equal to the previous balance from @coinbase (was there a data breach you did not tell us?)
@warriors_mom @MyStraightTalk @coinbase Now, very unamused, it all became very clear to me what had happened: The phone number was needed to bypass the 2FA to login and then purchase cryptocurrency on my dime.
@warriors_mom @MyStraightTalk @coinbase While I was waiting for the Fraud Specialist at @wellsfargo, I submitted a security form to @coinbase to notify them my account had been compromised.
@warriors_mom @MyStraightTalk @coinbase @WellsFargo The Fraud Specialist, knowing full well that a married man would never zero out his account, because married men only care for the loves of their lives.
@warriors_mom @MyStraightTalk @coinbase @WellsFargo Their sweet hearts, their muse, their world; are far more important that shiny baubles or complex blockchains, he set out to cut loose the hounds of justice on this evil-doer.
@warriors_mom @MyStraightTalk @coinbase @WellsFargo Before a half hour had passed, @coinbase let me know they had locked my account down tighter than Barack Obama's education records. The fool who thought he would be rich at my expense had forgotten one thing:
@warriors_mom @MyStraightTalk @coinbase @WellsFargo Purchases made from a bank cannot be moved for 10 days in the event of a charge back.
All of his trickery begat nought. He has only earned himself possible criminal charges and time in the stocks.
There is no morale to this tale.
@warriors_mom @MyStraightTalk @coinbase @WellsFargo The only lesson to be learned is that just because bad things happen to you, they do not define you. What defines you would be how you act or react to adverse events.
The End... Or, is it?
