Landmark Clearing / Fraud and cheating
I handle all my 88-year old mother's financial affairs. A typed check showed up on her statement this month (Oct 08) written to UPN Services for $399; signed by 'pre-authorized signature'. Cleared by 'Landmark Clearing'. When calling the toll free number to this place it was simply an answering service and the person told me there was no such company and that it was fraudulent. The bank said they would not cover the loss even though we had placed a 'suspicious activity alert' on the account a long while back. They also said that according to their records that other bank customers of this very same bank had also lost money to this company. The bank is United Missouri Bank located in Kansas City.
