Alpha Red Inc. / unauthorized charge on my bank account
On October 3, 2008 my bank account was charged through my debit card number for $99.95 by Alpha Red Inc. without my permission. Thankfully on October 8, 2008 it was reimbursed. I didn't know anything about this until I received my statement today October the 17th. I called my bank about it because I didn't even know who Alpha Red is. They couldn't tell my anything and just suggested I research this on the internet. Of course, I was fearful because here was what we figured out to be an internet transaction that I didn't even do. So I had to have my debit card deactivated. This is very aggrivating because I not only have to pay $5.00 for my new card, but I have to wait at least 10 business days to get my new debit card, which will have a new account number, plus I have to get used to a new pin number. This is inconvenient at times such as when you go out of town and certain businesses won't accept out of town checks. I also called my bank back and told them what I found out so they can help other customers who may run into this problem. Very inconvenient, annoying, and much time having to be wasted on this by many people.
