SKS Associates just robbed my bank account of $195.00 on March 10th, 2011. I am working with my bank to return the funds due to a fraudulent transaction. I HAD a lease with Golden Eagle Leasing which was canceled in June 2007. Golden Eagle even refunded me some money after receiving their equipment back. I got this unauthorized, fraudulent
charge on my banking statement and was alerted to skspmt.com and got this bogus message:
"Transaction Message Center

I called the number and the mailbox was full -- No doubt due to all the other victims inquiring why their accounts were fraudulently debited. I am reporting SKS to all pertinent agencies with hopes they will be busted. I am open to joining in to any class action suit filed by others.....
STOP THESE THIEVES! Golden Eagle for not destroying private banking information before selling to a 3rd party. SKS Associates for taking advantage of, or stealing old personal information and making a fraudulent scamming attempt to rob folks under the guise of contractual law.
