So many colors to choose from for the Studio suite. You can pick one or two colors, you can mix and match them. I picked two colors that I will be showing you later on. I just want to blog about my day for now. I did not get far with Chase bank as far as getting my money back from the fraudulent check that was stolen from me. Chase insists that they are not going to give me my money because I shouldn’t have had my checks in my purse. I hardly ever use my business checking account checks…I keep them home or in my purse once in a while. I haven’t had time to scope out a different bank since I’ve been on Uber the last 2 days. Life is very difficult in California when you don’t have a car. The bus rides are terrifying!! Honestly I’m more afraid to go on a bus ride than I do walking in front of  gangsters.  Stay away from Crenshaw and Slauson route…the riders are dangerous. I’ve seen some  crazy things. 
Thank goodness for my amazing clients Marla and Steve for taking me to the new shop to help me move some of my stuff  in. It saved me a lot time and Uber expense. I may have 99 problems but good friends isn’t one of them. I’ve always been blessed with good people in my corner. They live complete opposite of me yet took the time to give me a ride home as well. I havent had the time or the guts to tell the owner of the shop where I work that tomorrow is my last day. Between trying to figure out what I’m doing to do with my totaled car and stolen money from the bank it’s enough to have a heart attack. Good grief! Don’t know if I told you the thieve that stole my car crashed into a pole. There is never a good time to have your car stolen but it’s not nice when they steal it in the middle of you switching shops.😓


Forensic Files

I’ve seen way too many Forensic Files episodes in the past to recognize fraud. Chase bank alerted me last week that someone wrote a fraudulent check on my account. They waited  two weeks to send me the notification. Normally when there is suspicious fraud activities you get a text alert the same day or the next. Hummm I wonder why they waited so long to tell me?🤔
1) Two different bankers at different chase banks showed me the checks and they both said that it is obvious that it is not my handwriting. The top check is the fake check.
2) My last name is Carrillo you can tell in my signature at the bottom right hand of the check that the last letter I wrote is a O.
3) Pay attention to the top check’s signature. It’s looks like the last name is Chavez something close to it  Do you notice the difference in signature?
4) Now pay attention to both copies of the checks my check at the bottom has lines going across it and the top check is clear.
5) Look at the way Luis the scammer wrote the letter E in the second line when he wrote the word Eleven in comparison as to how I write my E in my signature at the bottom check on the right. I can go on and on and on and on finding discrepancies in the fraud check. It is obvious that I did not write Luis the wicked a check for $1,124 dollars.
Chase bank claims it’s my fault that my check was stolen because I shouldn’t keep my checks in my purse. I’ve never heard of such a ludicrous thing in my life. They also claim that they did a investigation and that both of my name  signatures match perfect. Do both signatures match perfect to you? I am going tell everyone and their momma my story with Chase bank so that no one has to endure this stressful painful experience. I will file a police report even though they cannot do much, but at least Luis the wicked will be in the system.  Everything is so much harder when you don’t have a car. I’d rather blog about my situation here than to talk about this drama to my clients at the new shop. I don’t want to bring negativity to the new salon. I cannot even enjoy my new life endeavor of having my own studio..with this message going on.

Uber experience

Today was my first day ever getting a ride with Uber. I think I used 4 different drivers. The first driver had snacks in the back for his passengers. He had chips, mints,  candies and water. They were very punctual and super nice. I told them about put my stolen car and how someone wrote a fraudulent check of $1,124 dollars..Chase bank is NOT going to give me my money because they said it’s my fault for keeping my checks in my purse. Ummm what?? I’ve never heard of such a ludicrous thing in my life. First of all they were the ones who alerted me and told me that someone did fraud on my account. I went last week in person to file a claim and now they are washing their hands clean..and don’t want to pay up. Even the banker noticed that it wasn’t my handwriting. We live a corrupt system.  It’s a jungle out here. Only the strong survive. On top of that I have to go and meet with the manager of the Sola Salon suites to pick out the color that I want for the studio tomorrow .  I haven’t told the owner of the shop where I work that on leaving.  I start my new location on Monday. Let’s hope and pray I get my car back by then. I don’t know how long I will be ridding Uber but for now it’s ok. I’d rather pay my fee…and not make anyone feel weird for helping me and I get to cry in the back seat of the Uber cars  as much as I want. And how was your day? 

The worst 

I can relate.  You spend months and months trying to get the perfect blond on a client and then one day they decide they want it jet black or they come in with a box color red hair. You are entitled to change your mind I but at least wear the color for 6 months to a year before you change it overnight. I speak for myself.  I feel like you don’t respect the time and energy I spend trying get to pull the black out of hair to make you  blond.
