Check Recovery Systems 3 calls in 3 hours, 2009 check (?), Banks says it was a scam, fraud, check-cashing service complaint Cincinnati Ohio
On Frday July 19, 2013 I received several calls and messages on my cell phone, first from a woman (did not save the message, wish I had now) and then from a guy named 'Mark'. The first message wasf something like "Charges for fraud will be processed if I did not immediately respond to this message".
When I hit re-dial it was not the same person and I could tell it sounded like some collection agency in the background, so I hung up. I got a call back from this 'Mark' person immediately. He began telling me pretty much the same thing, but: he knew where I worked, my address, last 4 digits of SSN, AND the name of my bank. He told me that my BANK was pressing charges for check fraud, for a check I supposedly wrote in 2009 to a check cashing place. He didn't know the name of the place I used, and like an idiot, I vounteered the information to one I had used in the past.
He then went on to say that I had not responded to any letters in the mail (I didn't get any), and that I had less than a week to come up with the $400 to cover the bad check. I told him I was hanging up and going directly to my bank to find out if it was true.
When I get to the bank I was pretty fired up about why they hadn't told me anything about this and I was told: "We already had a female customer come in this week who paid these people $500, and none of it was true. Do NOT give them any money. There is no way our bank is in any way associated with this." Next day I searched on line and found that I was not alone in being targeted by this group. A new crook is born every day it seems!
