So frustrated right now. The price of groceries in this town is freaking ridiculous. Our sponsor recommended we use netgrocer.com to purchase some goods, as they usually arrive in two to three weeks, which will help us save at least some money until our HHE and all of the consumables we purchased in DC arrive.
So yesterday I spent an hour putting together a netgrocer.com order. Then I attempted to pay for it using Paypal. Paypal locked me out of my account until I entered the checking account associated with the card. Well unfortunately the account number I entered was associated with Joey's PayPal account and so PayPal locked both accounts. At this point I still have no idea that I'm using a Nigerian IP address, and so I'm going to our bank website trying to figure it out, back to our PayPal accounts - all over the place for about two hours. Finally, defeated, I decide to try again tomorrow.
Last night one of our friends told us the internet in the library was not on a secure line. Awesome. Luckily today I was finally granted access to the computer lab. I thought I saw two suspicious transactions but Joey checked them and we're okay. I spent another two hours redoing my netgrocer order and trying to figure out PayPal. Unfortunately we're both still locked out of our accounts. Which also means we're locked out of netgrocer and locked into exhorbitant prices on laundry detergent and paper towels. But I suppose I'm glad that PayPal is paranoid because I ignorantly exposed myself to fraud.
