If you use your debit card to make on-line purchases, please check your account often.
I logged onto my account this morning and found two charges for credit checks that I did not authorize. One was for about $15 and the other about $25. Both to the same company. The $25 charge said recurring beside it which leads me and the bank to believe they would be taking that amount out each month.
I called my bank and they told me to contact the company. There was a telephone number included in the transaction which leads me to believe this is a legitimate company. If it wasn't, I don't think they would have included a phone number. They also said I could come in to the bank and file a dispute. So I called the company and the employee verified "fraud" after asking me to verify an email (which was not mine) and my birth date (again not mine). I have to call them back on Monday to talk to the fraud department. If they do not credit my account on Monday, I only have to contact my bank and they will take care of it for me.
I am glad that I caught this early on and really thankful that the charges were not large.
Oh, I did go by the bank today and they closed my debit card and they are having a new one issued to me.
Have a great day!
