MB XL Ent / Fraudulent check
On 11/3, this company ran an electronically-generated paper check for $34.95 through my account. It cleared overnight on 11/5. The address they printed on it was over three years old. They used a random six-digit check number which of course had no relation to any check number I've ever had. I went straight to my bank and closed my account, and it was soon enough that they were able to simply bounce the transaction. The money has already been returned to my account.
In relaying this information to a friend, I found out that she had the same company do the same thing to her (for $39.99) last week. I use Arvest Bank in Tulsa, OK, and she uses Bank of Oklahoma. When she went to her bank to complain, she was given the impression that she was not the first one to complain. My bank wasn't aware of it, but I made sure to let them know once I found out about my friend's transaction.
If this happens to you, be sure to file a complaint with your state's Attorney General's office, as well as the FTC. You can find your AG at http://www.naag.org/, and the FTC's complaint site is https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/. It's going to take a lot of people doing a lot of complaining to get anything done about this company, so do your part!
