    I had seven fraudulent charges totalling over $700 from MICROSOFT *ADCENTER BILL.MS.NET WAUS in under 12 hours. I have never heard of them... but my bank gave me their number - 800-518-5689 and explained the situation. The woman (Heide) took my information, gave me a case number, and said they would do what ever they can to resolve the situation. I have received an email from them (Microsoft) who says they are working to getting me a "quick refund." My bank said the charges came from an old debit card that didn't get deactivated, and that all the security measures (address verification, etc) were bypassed. I'm still trying to get it straightened out. I'm a single mom... and they emptied my checking, savings, overdraft, and still went $350 over that. I have no money except the $5 in my pocket. Yippee.

    I just signed on to my bank account and found four fraudulent charges of $120.51, $78.57, $88.97, and $5 dollars. I blocked my VISA card and I'm researching the company before filing a fraud report with my bank.

    Thank you for your reports. They have helped me to put a stop to the fraudlent charges.

    They have taken money out of my account three to four times and it always different amounts. These charges of different amounts each time brought up a red flag and I reported them to my bank and had them blocked from them from taking any more money and reprted as FRAUDULENT withdrawls from my account.

    I too have 9 charges from Microsoft Adcenter (800 518-5689) ranging from $51.34 up to $531.58 totalling over $2, 000 in a span of 4 days. There are also suspect charges in that time period for Microsoft Xbox Live. The Microsoft Adcenter rep tells me the charges came from WebUNet Company (406-270-4061). This company had my name, address and charge card numbers. I have called my credit card company to cancel my card and will call my bank. All Microsoft Adcenter did was apologize and set up a service claim number for me. They said they will investigate.
