Spooky tinfoil hat experience

OK, I need this explained to me. I just got a call from Discover Card, asking for me by name and then bitching about my payment, which is a few days late, but which I paid online this morning. Not that unusual, you say, except that I am not at home, I am over doing some work at Stefanie’s apartment, and they called on her phone! How did they know I would be here, or that I might be here? Admittedly, I spend most of my time here, but how do THEY know that? Am I being surveilled? Do they read my livejournal? Anyone care to send me some more foil for my new hat?

I was going to ask the person on the phone, but I was kind of still in shock over it, and also I am just not sure if I should/want to know.

Oh good grief!
Maybe you should call the company, and asked if they actually did this. It might have been someone who got your info and was on a phishing mission for identity theft!

I thought of that, but then once I told them I had paid they looked it up and knew that I had paid and how much I had paid, so they already have access to my account there- I didn't give them any information; they already knew everything they needed to know.

"Discover Card---We Follow You Everywhere"

---should perhaps be their new theme/slogan. ;)

I dunno. I am kinda into the mystery.

No! Don't wear a tinfoil hat! The government wants you to wear a tinfoil hat!!

But this delightful ditty argues otherwise. And it is sung by otters, which weighs in its favor.

WTF??

Did you ever call them from her phone? Credit card companies had Caller ID long before the general public did. Maybe they keep track of where we call from in the event we become deadbeats.

If you never used her phone to call them, I repeat: WTF??
