    I also had a withdrawal taken from my account for $398.00. The person made up a bogus check and the company name was SIMPLE HERBAL DIRECT phone # 1-888-221-2595. There was only a recording when I tried to contact them. I had placed an oreder online a few days earlier.

    I had a similar situation in which a fraudulent check for $298.00 was drafted to Simple Herbal Direct. I believe they aquired my bank information through a payday loan application. Same scenario as far as trying to contact the company. I would either get disconnected or would be directed towards an answering service. I had never heard of the business and had not done any previous business with them.

    I would recommend closing any account that has been tied unto a payday loan.

    I had the same thing happen to me yesterday. I had a check with my name, address, account information on it post against my bank account. It had simple herbal direct with a phone number on it. I also called the number with no answer. i did however get the information off the back of the check like what bank it was deposited into along with the account number. I did call that bank with no help from them. I have researched the webiste where the check was ordered from and realized it is a printer check. Meaning the person(s) with our information can make more checks using a simple home computer and printer. I have closed my account and so should you. I am working on finding a check fraud agency to report it to.

    If you have copies of your checks you should look at the back and get the bank information and acct # that it was deposited to to include in any kind of report.

    I've joined the "club". I had the same thing happen to the tune of $298.00. Fortunately, My bank was able to refund the money to my account. I have since closed my accounts and opened new one. The bank is going after the other bank and taken the money from that account.

    I never heard of Simple Herbal Direct...what a scam!

    I had $298 removed from my account as well -- my husband called the number and told them that if they didnt remoe the charge, which was mad under my maiden name, he would prosecute them under the fullest extent of the law and have th fbi investigate them. We then called out back and are having them investigate the charge and remove it. we are also reporting them to the FBI. Hope they get caught.

    On Sept. 29, 2008 these scam artist withdrew 298.00 from my checking account. EVERYONE NEED TO BE AWARE OF THIS SCAM. I checked my bank account on 10/01/08 and to my shocking surprise I found that my account had be overdrawn and just like the other complaints that I have read they had the bogus telephone # to call. They even had a fake refence number for me to refer to. I called the number several times and left several message but of course there was no returned call. This is a total scam. I had to go to the bank & cancel my account, redirect my funds etc.. This is such an inconvenience because of someone else's dishonesty. I am having the fraud department look into this matter and one way are the other I am going to do whatever is necessary to help find the culprits that stole my money and I WILL NOT REST UNTIL THEY ARE PROSECUTED TO THE FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW.

    This is Wrong when someone can take money out of your checking account. I had 298 dollars taken and no one answers the phone. How can the United States Banking systme allow this. Disgusted.

    This morning I was faced with the same issue of having 298.00 withdrawn from my account. I was able to contact my bank and they are working with me. We must get this person!! I am trying to contact the bank and see if I can get the name on the account in which the money is being deposited in. Once this happens, I think I will be able to go furhter.

    I also had this happen on October 7th. I've called 888-221-2595 many times daily. Today someone actually did answer! He said they were an "identity theft" company. He did mention it costed $298. I didn't mention how much was taken out of my account. I am now calling that number every chance I get as it costs THEM money for each time someone calls the "888" number. I did get refunded thru my bank. I have never used PAYDAY or ordered anything online. My bank said these people "fish" for bank account numbers and that's how they get them.
