On May 31st, 2008 a young lady came to my door. This young lady appeared to be in her teens. I believe in helping teens so yes I did answer my door. This young lady presented herself as trying to earn herself a trip by trying to be one of the people that sold the most magazines. I agreed to help her out of course. When I went to get my check book she said that she gets more points by receiving some of the money in cash. I did go and count $5.00 in cash from coins that my husband and I had saved and I made her out a check for the total of $55.00. I thought that I was subscribing for Metro Home Magazine for one year. This young lady then went to putting a band aide on my screen door she said so that all the other kids would no that they cannot come to this house again because she had already been here. By-the-way I did invite this young lady in my house as well. This month I became kind of concerned because nothing has come in the mail. I then tried to call the number that's on the receipt that this young lady left me and someone does answer. Fist of all he said oh wait a minute then he said; oh I don't know why I said that because no one lives here by that name. When I explained why I was calling he said really, please let me know what happens.
Today the 23rd of July it really bothers me that I obviously had allowed myself to be taken. I called my bank (credit union) My bank told me that I should check the name of who is listed on the back of my check as the depositor to Washington Mutual Bank which is Face to Face Technologies INC. When I did wow was I surprised it said: "Ripoff Report". Per my bank they said that when they find out someone is doing this their practice is or rather what they do is close out that account. This led me to calling Washington Mutual Bank the Waukegan Branch because I could not get through anyone else's phone system to a live person. There I talk to a Vanessa in customer service. All that Vanessa told me was that she would pass my information on. I did say that I would be giving all of my information to BBB and Fox 6.
How many other people are they getting money from. My guess is that it must be enough to where they have a business account in a bank so that they can deposit all of these checks.
I would be so grateful if you could please check into this. I am sure that so many people like myself would be very grateful for your assistance to stop these people.
Thank You so much,
