The Adventures and Misadventures of a Neer Do Well Artist Living in Baltimore.
I am a visual artist and writer living in Baltimore. I don't have any artist friends. Frankly, artists scare me, there so darn flaky. The above picture is either of me or proof that I'm a pretty decent artist. My goal is to be a self sufficient artist, whereas I wouldn't have to do something else in the day in order to eke out an existence. I also like to attend various cultural events around town. I go to plays, the symphony, etc. Also, I have Asperger's Syndrome. I found this out recently and it has explained a heck of a lot as to why I am as I am.

I WAS ROBBED!
This morning I got the shock of my life when I checked my checking account online. All my money was nearly gone after just getting paid yesterday!
My checking account was raided via fraudulent companies on PayPal. They broke into my account and began making fraudulent withdrawals from my checking account. They did this without mercy on June 26th to June 27th. The only reason it appears they stopped on the 27th was because I had insufficient funds.
I did the only thing I could think to do I called up my bank and closed out my checking account so now no money can be taken out. I have to go to my bank on Monday to fill out forms about what happened. Hopefully, I will get my money back.
You know I have been with PayPal ever since they started. I trusted PayPal! I can tell you one thing now I will never again give another internet payment company my checking account number! I see now that with that type of information it leaves you vulnerable to anyone just hacking into their system and robbing you blind and you won’t know anything is wrong until its too late.
I am still in shock. I never thought anything like this could ever happen to me. Im not rich. I live in the hood! I still can not believe I just got paid yesterday and now I have absolutely nothing!
