Right, got that? Ok, and now breath out your mouth. Good job, everyone. Take a break, you've earned it."

Never really gone too far into it.

Only one i've ever used is

Breath in through nose (slow 5 count)
Hold the breath (slow 5 count)
Exhale through mouth (slow 5 count)
Hold No Breath (slow 5 count)
Repeat

The holding no breath is a killer

So, my gf's wallet was stolen down there. She didn't even realise she had it, thought it was in the car all weekend but it actually was in a shopping bag there in the tent.

Got a text from the bank last night saying call us, there's some suspicious transactions on your card.

Three or four hundred quid in separate purchases on two debits cards, some site called Wish.com. Little fucking cunts.

BUT

as well as the online shit, there was a PIZZA ordered from Mizzoni in Phibsboro.

Called the shop and they were sound about it. Pulled up the transaction, the delivery address etc. Said they'd be happy to assist the Gardai.

Gardai looking in to it this morning, as are the bank. Because the site will have the delivery address too. Deadly.

Anyone had any experience with this in the past?

but sure they might have just had it delivered to a random address and stood outside it.

i think the banks give their customers the benefit of the doubt in situations like this, though. they just have a bit of a look into it and usually refund the money.

I've always been curious, other than using the tap function, what could you really use a stolen card for that's not gonna either need the pin or includes address

Wouldn't the Wish.com stuff include a delivery address too?

I guess it would yeah. We've emailed the site to ask how they can help.

Hopefully between the pizza place, the site, one or two other things on the card that we couldn't identify, and the Gardai actually knowing what to do, they'll be caught.

imagine someone stole your card and donated a few hundred quid to charity.

you'd feel like some cunt for trying to claim that back.

Considering paying for a subscription myself - is it worth it? I felt the 10 free ones were pretty much the same thing repeated. Not mad on your man's voice either which could be a major issue!

They could just get the stuff delivered to mailboxes e.g parcel motel or arrange to collect them from the courier depot/ups etc.

Or put a semi-correct address (eg. an apartment number that doesn't exist on an apt block or a vacant apt) and then the delivery driver will have to phone them or it get it left in the communal delivery space

it is a risk for them still obviously

Muppets. Lol.

Why would wish.com or a pizza order be flagged suspicious though?

Maybe something to do with the billing address you usually have to fill out when ordering online. If an unknown address was filled in for the card it might get flagged.
