On 09-04-07, as if by magic, a charge appeared on my bank account activity page, in the amount of $9.95, by a company called Networkagenda.com. I have never even heard of them, much less ordered anything from them. I realized that $9.95 is a meager amount, but if this company is doing this to thousands of people, well that's a pretty good profit ratio for nothing!!! I tried to send them an email, which of course came back.
I am waiting for my new phone service to be turned on, so I haven't called them, yet..... I have advised my bank to block any further transactions from them. Whether or not I recieve my money back, well I'd be happy with them just getting what they deserve. Jail time, lots of it. There are alot of people who are on fixed incomes and even the slightest shift can cause a avalanche.
I had my identity stolen over two years ago and have worked my butt off disputing and clearing the false charges on my credit report. I am very wary of giving out any kind of sensitive information over the internet, especially when it comes to my money. When I purchase anything off the web, I use Paypal, this is the only secure way (I feel) to buy anything from the internet.
So who are these people and how did they get my banking information? I have a good security softward program, I check daily for malware and spyware. What more can I do? I will not be intimidated by strangers online, who take without asking. I have found out the hard way how to be extra careful. I would just like to see them shut down, so they can't do this to anyone else.
