    I checked my checking account today and there was a charge for $39.95 from Pink Home Entertainment. I called my Bank and they gave me the number of the company who made the charge. The billing people were nice and sadi to contact my bank of the fraudulent charges and that they will refund it in 7-10 business days. This charge was made under my maiden name and address where i lived 4 years ago. I feel like now I need to close this account and open a new one. I have also had problems in the past few months with fraudulent Vonage charges as well. I am getting really sick of this.

    Good lord, Julie. I felt like deja vu reading your complaint... I wondered for a moment if I had posted the comment and forgot about it. I saw a check cleared last week for $39.95 - the check it was drawn on was my maiden name (been married four years) and the address was my husband's and my apartment THREE YEARS AGO. Am on the phone right now with my bank.

    I just logged in to my checking this morning & noticed this $39.95 charge. It was created using my old address from 3 years ago. Bank of America is refunding the charges but I have to close this account & open a new one with means updating direct deposit, etc. Pain in the butt!

    OMG same problem here! I was just going through some bank statements inputting them into my Microsoft Money account, and saw a funky check number, so I went to my online banking to see what it was for and have MB Pink Home Entertainment on there for $24.99...so I called the 800 number trying to figure out who I paid this for, and they said it was for "Pink Adult Home Entertainment, " which to me sounds like porn, which I would not have purchased! MB said they were putting a freeze on the payments but to contact Bank of America about it. This is insane so many people are having this problem. Good to know I'm not the only one.

    It's come to my attention that possibly the loose link, if you will, came from Mary Kay. I sold Mary Kay a few years ago, and it was under my maiden name. Is that true of anyone else (that you sold Mary Kay)? Please feel free to email me - amvictory@gmail.com

    Update: I'm on the phone with Mary Kay's Legal Department. If you were a member of Mary Kay, I urge you to contact them, as they actually have the size to possibly do something about it. Their legal department's number is:
    (972) 687-5777.

    Also of note - if Mary Kay is the common denominator, does it seem like the name of the company - Pink Home Entertainment - was carefully chosen? Pink is the signature color of Mary Kay, and if one were still active in Mary Kay you might just assume it was an order, or a fee, or something of that nature.

    I also used to sell Marky Kay about 4 years ago. It is under my maiden name and old address. Maybe this is where our information was stolen. Not good.

    Ladies, I think we've found our common denominator... looks like Mary Kay's database was compromised. I am renewing my attempts to contact their legal department tomorrow.

    Update: From another site - a lady responded to me and said that she did NOT sell Mary Kay, but sold something else. BUT - she used ProPay to process credit cards for them. I, too, used ProPay to process my Mary Kay sales. So... it's a level further in, possibly.

    Reading these comments - I also use Propay and have for a few years. I am writing the company now to see if they are aware of any leak of personal information.

    Update: Just got off the phone with MK Legal. Propay is next. Mary Kay did suggest that Blizzard Entertainment was the common denominator. I don't think it is - Blizzard is the company that does World of Warcraft. When I first talked to the lady, she said
    "Oh, I don't think it's us. We have over 700, 000 consultants."
    so when she said that about Blizzard, I said
    "Well, they have over 7 MILLION subscribers. Furthermore, they process the payment as Visa transaction. They don't have, and never have had, my account number or routing number."
    Her: "But the card's linked to your account."
    Me: "But they CREATED A CHECK."

    Grrr. Anyway, please keep me posted if you hear or find out anything.

    Found this charge on my business account using my home address. I did not sell Mary Kay, but I did use Propay and that was when I worked out of my home. I called the 800 number (before I found this site) and was given the same "we don't have contact info for that company but here's an email address for our company". That is baloney. As the processor, how could they possibly provide funds for a company if they do not have information on them? He told me to call my bank and they could help me. Although I did get the same 7-10 day refund speech.

    I have just found a check from MB Pink Home Ent posted against my account. The address on the check is my address from 8 years ago! The account/bank that the check was posted to never even had this address of mine. I did not sell Mary Kay, however used Pro-Pay years ago. I have contacted my bank and have started the fraudulent check process.

    I've been hit on 12/8/2008. They agreed to immedietly return all funds to my account. I also called my bank and reported this happening. Now I have to wait and see how long it takes them to put this money back. They told me up to 10 business days. They also told me it was for a website that I purchased. NOT~!
