On or about 8/25/02 We found that our checking account was short by about $50. When we finally got The information from the bank as to where this money went we were told that on 8/3/02 $49.95 was paid out to Globalinx and was supposedly authorized at 20:39:20 on this date.

No one in my household authorized nor was the company even in touch with us. we do not do electronic transfers with anyone we don't know and very few that we do know(2 companys at present). We were shocked to find out that monies had been removed without our authorization or even our knowledge. We have recieved no services from this company and plan to never do business with them.

They removed our money using a debit VISA card number that was not given to them, I would loke to know where they stole it from cause we do not do any internet purchases. all of our telecomunications our handled through SPRINT and we like it that way.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Too many banks play fast and loose with the ACH...

AUTHOR: The Fraud Chick - ()

Ron and Janice,

Most cons get credit card numbers through organized theft rings. The rings' participants work in grocery stores, hotels, gas stations, car rentals, etc. Most big retailers and grocers have encrypted data or hide this information from cashiers--but hotels, gas stations, rental agencies and other small businesses don't. Other ways they get the numbers is through complicated numeric programs that randomly create card numbers--these are especially successful when the bank card has no expiration date.

Most recently there have been some interesting articles on unscrupulous companies that obtain merchant accounts and then obtain account numbers from banks. A year or so ago one online pornography site siphoned millions from account holders before they were stopped.

I hope that you got your money back from the bank. If not, go back and ask for an ACH (Automated Clearing House) fraud complaint form. You stated in your complaint that you don't use the ACH or EFT option on your account. I suggest you have your bank place a block on your account so the fraudsters can't double dip.

Good Luck,
