I was notified by mail that my bank account was SEVERELY overdrawn. When I called the bank to find out what was going on, they told me that a company named Bluestar direct had caused the overdraft, which in turn caused transactions that I really had made to be overdrawn, thus giving me several overdraft fees, not only for the transactions they made illegally, but the ones that I really had made to pay for things to get my house set.
I cannot get the police to call me back, and am filing a complaint with the Attorney General of my state, which happens to be a close personal friend of my Grandmother. I will get this taken care of. The charges were 3 transactions of $60 each taken out within a 2 day span.
It is currently 6/2007 and this company is still ripping people off. Can't anyone do ANYTHING about this? Furthermore, I called the number on the fake check that my bank showed me and actually got to talk to someone. They said their accounting department handles all disputes, but they don't take phone calls. I was told to either fax or mail my bank statements with the charges on them to the accounting department and someone would contact me after that.
YEAH RIGHT! I so am not going to send them any more information on my bank account! I don't even know how they got it in the first place! I never use my bank account for ANYTHING, much less make a purchase on the internet like they said I did! I don't even know what product or service they provide! I can't get them to answer the phone again to even ask, I was so frustrated the first time I talked to them I forgot and the girl even hung up on me after she told me about the accounting department.
PLEASE, if you know of any class action law suits, or any law suites at all, let me know. I will gladly give my input on the situation!
