My comments are the same as all the others who have reported before me; However I have obtained some information which may be helpful to those of you who are looking to proceed forward with additional actions toward this company.
Obviously, I received a card in the mail and this company attempted to obtain my personal checking information in order to directly debit my Checking Account for their fees.
After appropriate inquirys were made with respect to their Catalog Service Merchandise offerings, I found out as so many others before me, that this did not exist other than verbally.
The company has no verifiable product offerings, no web address, no proper local phone number other than the toll free number which is used only for the purpose of activating your account and obtaining your personal bank information, at which point the theft of funds begins.
"Never ever" give out your personal checking information to anyone, unless it is for a legitamite purpose and with a company who is at least well known or at least can be verified through normal business channels.
As far as their alleged check cashing service is concerned, I was able to find out more information as follows:
"ACC" Allsate Check Cashing is located at 81 W. Utah Avenue, Las Vegas, Nevada., which is different that the 61 W. Utah Ave used for "CSS", also I was able to procure a phone number for "ACC" which is: 702-382-4479.
Believe it or not this information was available for all to see through the Las Vegas City Website under Check Cashing Services Offered.
I can see how they steal your money through the fraudulent pretense of "CSS" but I would hate to see how they would destroy your personal checking account and obliterate your funds under the false pretense of advancing funds to you on your own account and saying the check will be held for 15-30 days before they negoiate it with your bank.
What this company is doing constitutes the following:
Actual Fraud, Constructive Fraud, Federal Violations under the "RICO" Statues for their use of the U.S. Mail in perpetrating their scam.
This business should be shut down and the owners and/or perpetrators thrown in Jail with full restitution being required.
Contact your local law enforcement agency, the Attorney General and the law enforcement officials in Las Vegas in order to effectuate all legals means necessary to put a stop to this travesty before it winds up hurting more innocent people who are only trying to obtain what they have paid for.
