UMG Buyersedge cal / unauthorized debits to checking acct

1 Philadelphia, PA, United States Review updated:

My first indication that this company even existed came in the form of three monthly charges to my checking acct. I called the bank and dug into the web to get a phone number-it didn't come easy. I found out who they were and how I had run afoul of them, by making a single purchase on the Hechinger's website. I had not authorized UMG to deduct anything; I didn't even notice their page, nor did I click on any buttons to authorize them to do anything. I bought one item on the Hechinger's website, and UMG, who may or may not have "partnered" with Hechinger's, sucked up my account info and started charging me for absolutely nothing. IF this criminal enterprise attaches to your information, you will have to: call your bank and dispute the charges; change the number on your debit/credit card, meaning get a new card; contact your state attorney general and file a complaint; contact the state attorney general in Illinois and file a complaint with them. Here are teh address and phone number of the company:
UMG Buyersedge cal:
United Marketing Group

This scam is an ongoing criminal enterprise, as far as I am concerned. They are scam artists, and the more trouble we make for them the sooner they will go away. I don't know to what extent Hechinger's is part of the problem. They may be innocent of perpetrating a scam, but they are guilty of allowing this phony company to use their website as a means of acquiring bank account numbers.

    One further note: I just checked on the Hechinger website and found that it has gone away. It no longer exists. Past Hechinger customers are referred to "Homeclick". Draw your own conclusions.
