SKIVOIP Kyle, Gary Stedmon SKI VOIP - STOLE MY INFO AND MY MONEY TUALATIN, OR Internet
It's like any other normal day, at the grocery store shopping for food. I pull out my phone and look at my checking account balance and WHOA! What is this charge for $39.75?! The cart stops and I look at my phone completely dumbfounded, an account that I NEVER use to write checks, now has a "remotely created check" as my bank calls it with the deduction nearly $40.00. For a single mother with two kids, this isn't funny, or harmless. It's serious business when I can't use my own money to buy formula for my newborn!
Since it was too late to contact my bank in regards to the charge, I decided to hold off and call in the morning, letting my blood cool. I opened my account the next morning, and took a look at the check copy to see that it has my first / last name, a city I haven't lived in for 3 years, my e-mail which hasn't been used in years as my signature, and "Pay to the order of: 800-315-4730 SVP (9900005229)". I contact my bank and they were helpful in stopping all checks from this point forward, and getting me the transaction dispute form.
After reading up on this company, I found a lot of folks, like myself, have dealt with being robbed by these scammers. I contacted the company directly. They were almost expecting my call, they informed me that my money would be deposited back into my account within 1-3 days. I asked them how they got my information, and they claim "You signed up". I spoke with Kyle first, then I asked to speak with the manager, I was sent to a man named "Gary Stedmon". I asked him how their company received my information, he again... told me I sighed up. They must have thought I was stupid... I ask for the address to the location they are and I recieve a "Just one moment" as they give me the identical address that leads to a gigantic field in Oregon. I asked him "Oh, so you work in a gigantic field?" No response.
I've filed an internet crime report on this "company". I hope I can recoup my money.
