On 12-24-07 at 10PM someone stole $618.00 from my checking account through ACH withdrawal. The payment was made to AT&T for $618.00.

(I have no AT&T accounts) And all it took was having 2 pieces of information, my checking account number & the bank routing number, both are printed on your check. This information is used in various ways to initiate fraud. What happened to me, the perpetrator used my bank account & routing numbers to initiate a payment for goods or to pay a bill by making a phone call and giving MY numbers to the desired vendor.

So whoever you WRITE a check to, has your account number & routing number, and can do this to you, its just that easy. After closing TCF account & going to another bank, I asked if they could BLOCK ACH withdrawals, but the bank said NO they cannot block ACH withdrawals. This is one scam, I had never heard of, & no one is really talking about it. I did get reimbursed from TCF but it took many weeks & they have no "customer contact" fraud number. TCF did not pay for my checks, that I had to repay because of this.

#1 Consumer Suggestion

ACH Withdrawls

AUTHOR: Wj - (U.S.A.)

It sounds like you're the victim of a scam that is operated buy dishonest employees in major chains that accept checks as payments and use check scanners.

Some Walmart employees were caught doing this: When a customer pays with a check, they are to sign an authorization for the withdrawal, then the cashier is supposed to simply scan one of your checks and GIVE THE CHECK BACK TO YOU.

Some employees were caught on camera (after complaints) telling the customer that they needed to keep the check "on file". They then used it to buy merchandise for themselves.

Yes, anything can be done as long as they know your account and routing number. Just thinking that this is what might have happened to you.
