Crank Mail

After three letters came from a bank in Delaware saying I had an inactive account, I called their 800 number. Turns out that a "zillion" years ago Frank and I opened a secured credit card account. The woman who answered the 800 number asked if I wanted to deactivate the account and receive a check for the balance in it. I asked her what the balance was. Shockingly it was NOT chump change so I said sure, send it to me. Received yesterday a check for $XXXX.xx! Paying off my only current credit card with this unforeseen windfall!
