Blech. Getting your credit card information compromised is a real pain in the butt. I found this out today when I got a bill from a random university that I’ve never been enrolled in, never applied to, never visited (let alone come within 300 miles), and had never considered for anything.
So if anyone who works for a university accounting department is reading this: when something is billed to a person who’s not a student, the student’s parent/guardian, financial aid/scholarship fund, or related to the student in some way–you should immediately realize that something is WRONG. Don’t go sending bills willy-nilly figuring that random people will pay up or else you’ll be getting annoying phone calls from people like me.
