Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

A few fays ago, I applied for a payday loan, online.
Through some kind of phishing scam, this company debited my checking acct. for $69.95, which I discovered the next day.
I immediately called this company, and was advised that the fee is for "membership" in their club.
I advised them I never authorized this charge, and they agreed reluctantly to "cancel" my "membership" - and further said that they would send me a refund check...within 2-3 weeks!!
I called the fraud dept. at my bank, Bank of America, who is very familiar with this group, and they immediately reversed the $69.95 charge. I've also filed a police report with my local sheriff.

I want to caution ANYONE to not deal with this organization.
If victimized by these people, call your local police, file a complaint with the Federal trade commission, and most very importantly, file an online complaint with  the FBI Internet crime complaint center. The authorities really need to understand the scope of these thieves, and the large number of victims they're making everyday.
Their address, 8550 W. Desert Inn #102 Las Vegas, NV 89117, is a UPS store!!

I also had the same problem---mine just recently reported on this web-site.  I just wanted to thank you for supplying the ic3 website address.  Just so you know I also filed a report with them.  These people need to be stopped in preying on people like us who barely survive.  Good luck with your case.

Consumer advance credit - update

AUTHOR: Dave - (United States of America)

Everyone,

The last unauthorized check that hit my acct. showed their bank acct. info. on the back.
I'm sure these people must be getting hit hard with the fees associated with all these reversals. Couldn't happen to a nicer group...
Okay, so here's the acct info for these idiots:

Plaza Bank
acct # 122244087
19900 Macarthur Blvd. # 190
Irvine, CA 92612
949-502-4300

Not surprisingly, this bank specializes in "remote deposits". Interesting.
I think that they need to get a few e-mails and phone calls from all the victims of their banking customer who's committing internet fraud.
Make some noise.

Here's some key people at Plaza Bank to contact:

President - Gene Galloway
949- 502-4309
email: ggalloway@plazabank.net

Senior V.P. - Lissette Duran
949-502-4307
email: lduran@plazabank.net

V.P. Relationship mgr - Joseph Mendez
949-371-7753
email: jmendez@plazabank.net

V.P. Operations - Theresa Sanchez
949-502-4306
email: tsanchez@plazabank.net

I would highly recommend an e-mail to all of thse people describing your personal experience with their commercial customer, Centralized Customer service.
Let them know that you've filed complaints with the F.B.I. for their deceptive business practices. You know what they say about the squeaky wheel.

Good luck!

Dave
