The tale of the ... stolen card

The scariest financial tale I know
Was one which caused us a ghostly woe
We watch our finances; we plan just so
To find money gone was quite a blow!

When the finance liaison called to say
Our account had huge withdrawals that day
You can imagine our ghastly dismay
"I didn't spend it," was all I could say.

Quickly, she named items and price
Purchases made by someone not nice
"Get a new card," was the spirited advice
"Tear that card up"; she was precise!

We followed her instruction in the affair
Keeping a close watch everywhere
Now goblin finances are not in disrepair
Still our final suggestion is:
BEWARE.
-- Clydia D.
