Scammed Devil

Wondering why certain payments were not being authorised, your humble Devil wandered down to his local bank to ask for a statement. He was somewhat shocked to discover that he was a wee bit short. Sure, he has been a little plofligate of late; possibly too much so, and it was with shaking hands and mounting horror that he contemplated his situation.

Deciding that he had not been quite as reckless as he might have been, your humble Devil decided to take a trip to his main branch and get a more detailed breakdown. Checking carefully over the resultant papers, your humble Devil noticed an unauthorised payment. Just a small amount, you understand, nothing much.

Just four fucking grand!

Your humble Devil is more than a little annoyed. He is also in deep shit as it means that the large cheque that he issued to his supplier this morning isn't going to get paid. Time to toddle off and get a form and, hopefully, my money back too...

Fuck, fuck and double-fuck.
