[Dshield] Way off Topic

I received the exact same mail back in early August. Then 
they sent me a new card, but it specifically said not to 
activate it until after a specific date. Then I got paperwork 
saying that my card provider had changed from the original 
provider to a new provider.

I don't know if the Mail and the purchase were related, but 
they seemed to be.

Also of note. The new company doesn't seem to be getting my 
payments in a timely fashion from the old company. They keep 
sending me letters, and I waste my time calling them back. To 
date, there hasn't been an actual problem with this, but it 
is an inconvenience.
