A Rose by Any Other Name.

We heard of one reader who was surprised to see on her credit card statement a charge to west Little Rock florist Antique antique. The term has been used collectively to designate classical Greek and Roman works of art, particularly sculptures; as an adjective to indicate an object, a period, or a style of ancient or early times; and as a noun, for objects of art, furniture, rugs,  Rose.

She was surprised since she had not visited the shop recently. In fact, she had never set foot in the shop.

With credit card fraud Credit card fraud is a wide-ranging term for theft and fraud committed using a credit card or any similar payment mechanism as a fraudulent source of funds in a transaction. The purpose may be to obtain goods without paying, or to obtain unauthorized funds from an account.  in the back of her mind, she placed an anxious call that cleared it all up and revealed a strange twist.

When she called, asking about the strange charge, the Antique Rose employee answered with a question: "Did Jackson Hewitt An editor has expressed concern that this article or section is .

 tax service do your taxes this year?"

"Yes, why?" our friend asked. It seems the florist processes the credit card orders for the tax service in Arkansas Arkansas, river, United States
Arkansas (ärkăn`zəs, är`kənsô'), river, c.1,450 mi (2,330 km) long, rising in the Rocky Mts., central Colo.

We called and found out that Antique Rose owner Mary Mary, the mother of Jesus
Mary, in the Bible, mother of Jesus. Christian tradition reckons her the principal saint, naming her variously the Blessed Virgin Mary, Our Lady, and Mother of God (Gr., theotokos). Her name is the Hebrew Miriam.
 Harris also owns the Jackson Hewitt franchise in the state, which is why the orders are funneled through the shop.

An employee told us they do get a few calls during tax season from anxious credit card holders/Jackson Hewitt customers who weren't told about about the Antique Rose connection. But, "as soon as you tell them, they say, 'OK, that clears it up.'"
