resolved to the customer's satisfaction
I applied for a government grant. Unfortunately I did so through a link on an e-mail about college money. It led me to a signup form for Grants for Me which I filled out. It took Grants for Me about a month to get back to me. I gave them my ATM debit card number over the phone so they could charge me for the shipping and handling of their government loan package. The cost was approximately $1.50. Later I received a call from another person who was from Grants for Me, and he asked to "confirm" certain information on my card and my address. He mentioned that I would be receiving e-mails about offers for other programs, but I did not expect to already be signed up for all of these programs. Some of them had already charged my checking account with "membership fees" even though I had never personally applied for membership.
In the end, I closed my ATM Debit card and now the bank is sending me a new one, but I'm not sure if that is going to stop the scam artists from pushing more fees through, so I am going to try and close all my bank accounts and open new ones.
