Platinum Online Grouptook money i didn't have out of my checking account

the platinum online group has an overdraft in my regions checking account. not one time but two times, i had only a few dollars in the acoount now my account is in the negative amount of $253.92. i don't feel like i hav to pay for any of the bank fees. also platinum online group savings pays 99 has overdrafted into my checking account, which adds up to the second time they went into my checking, thats why i say they went into my checking account twice. i can not afford to pay anything that platiunm has taken out of the checking account, my account was not overdrafted and it would help me out alot if platinum would clear up my bank would be helpful if they would get my bank account back out of the negaative zone and back to the way i had it.please email me back at [protected] and leave a phone number so i can call you all back cause i don't answer all the calls that call my phone thanks.

Platinum Online GroupTheft

I have a lot of info on this group.If you have questions or need specific information or need help. I will try to offer and give you all I know. I can tell you where to find what your looking for or just send it to you. I saved everything I found. and it is interesting. Put all together it might convince a bank to refund your money. Mines thinking about it.And look into your banks policy on "phishing" mine refunds money taken due to someone getting my account number when I open a e mail or do some transaction that gets it to someone that steals it.My bank also states that if an e check is taken and it wasn't authorized by me it refunded. How can anyone prove when and where your info got out.So Im demanding in paper letter form I filled that form out. I want IP times everything. I have noticed that they like to target people that are on disability. What they do is say you joined 8 days before you get your check. Then in the receipt that you don't get it says that you have a seven day trial and if you don't cancel it in that time you are getting robbed. In that time the 7 days is up on, yep the day you get you direct deposit.I did find the receipt confirmation letter sent to me .It only had my e mail address and my name. I found it where even if your waiting to get it you really wont think of. Spam. I went through almost 5k of spam. That's when I found that I had "Joined" on 1/24 . If I can offer anything to help please let me know

    Platinum Online Group just took 99.00 out of my account on Wednesday without my authorization. When you call customer service they never call you back. I went to my bank and disputed the charge. Not only is the bank refunding me the money but they are contacting the fraud department. I called "customer service" back and threatened to report her to the FBI. She hung up on me. Go to your bank and do the same before its too late.

    I also have been a victim of the crooks. I just spent over 2 hours writing not only my story but how I am going to sue my bank, and the argument with proof I am going to use, to win.At the very least change the way the banks think and treat us. I also have many things that shows this groups calculating intent in the victims they choose. I believe I have points and questions as well as reasons to tell your bank that might convince them to give your money back. I am finding a lawyer I believe I have enough to convince most that we are not at fault what so ever. Mail me if you want to know where I found the reciept from the group, the place and receipt I knew nothing of. I as well found the date I was to have called them.I was a surprise to me. Not only did i not call them I was in the hospital that day until 3 days later. In ICU This group targets certain people.I'm not writing anymore I don't want to lose it again. Contact me, I have an argument your bank may not be able to dispute.

    I had money taken out of my account w/o my permission. Just like most or even all here. I have spent the last 3 day finding out so much info on the ### group I can help anyone has any questions about them. I found a form that is said on it, that the person they take the money from has filled it out and digitally signed it.In their terms and conditions it states they will cooperate and disclose all information and forms in the case of a fraud complaint. And in the application form I never seen until today is very brazen. They state in it they will sell or give away share any and all info they have on you to whomever wants it. Just as other places do for them. Hence the loan places being the cause of them having any of your personal info. They went and named the loan place. Here is part of whats on the application form .OneHour-Advance and Affiliates ("Companies") will disclose nonpublic personal information about you to other market participants that provide goods and services. The Companies may also disclose aggregate, anonymous data to investors and potential partners based on information collected from Users. You authorize us, or a marketing partner, to contact you with exciting new offers and information, via email, automated telephone messages or SMS/Text messages to your mobile phone, even if you are listed on a Do Not Call Registry. Users may opt out of the Companies disclosure to nonaffiliated trusted third parties (the “Parties”) by following the instructions in the opt out section of this privacy policy. We may also disclose nonpublic personal information about you as permitted by law.
    I have a lot more. I'm trying to get the banks to go after them not say we did something wrong. Does it really matter who has our information, if it's used it is THEFT. I'm fighting

    Their is a lot more about them you don't know. Your facts are a bit off, they don't loan money. They have a store that (doesn't really exist ) they grant you 2, 500 credit too. Their idea of a 2, 500 credit is, when you buy something they would sell it to you for a lower cost. The catch is, you buy a couch it coats 500 they sell it to you for 300 but the take the other 200 from the wonderful credit of 2, 500. Then you have to pay it back.With interest. But since their is no store your safe. You need to find the receipt, confirmation letter they probably sent. You will more them likely find it in spam. I had to go through almost 5000 to find it. I didn't know what name it would be under. I found mine and it said I joined on 1/24/11 that was news to me. I have also noticed that people on disability are more of a target. The agreement say's that I had a 7 day free trial after that i would be charged 99.49. I never knew of it and how could I it was in spam. More then likely sent their by them. The 7 days ended on the day i receive my disability and it's direct deposited. Theirs more but I'm out of room. I am fighting it and have a very good fight plan. I might be able to help, if nothing else i will give you an argument to take to your bank that will make them notice you aren't playing

I am not sure exactly what to do about being ripped off by this ### organization. I am going to see my attorney. You can contact the BBB, FBI, and the attorney general's office...but I suspect this money is gone forever...My bank did inform me to always use a credit card or debit card...and never use your checking account information online...Now I have to close this stupid account before they decide to hit me again.

    Larrell Dec 27, 2010

    I finally received a call back from this degenerate predatory organization after many many messages being left with their customer service operators. They cancelled the "Savings Discount Membership" that I never signed up for and are requiring that I send in my bank statements to prove that I was actually debited 99.49 and thereafter $14.99!!! I also filed a complaint with BBB and am seeking counsel as this warrants a class action to shut these people down for good. Will see if I EVER get cent one of a refund. Doubtful.

Platinum Online Groupfraudulent withdrawal

Fraudulent withdawal of $99.95 from beneficial bank account. I need my refund and will complain to the better business bureau.

  • I had my account hacked four times over the year in Beneficial Bank. One of the times Beneficial was suppose to close my old debit card, provide me with a new one and 4 months later the old number STILL linked to my account got hacked again. They give you a hard time about getting your money back. They have allowed someone to steal one of my checks and write his own check, sign his own name and they will not only give me our money back but they won't let us see our Signature card when we asked for it to prove our point!! It's that simple, that cut and dry...There is no "other" story. Just plain and simple, they allow the fraud, turn their heads and ignore you when you have the issue of not getting your money back!!! The WORST Bank EVER!!!

Platinum online group is a scam...i was charged $99 twice and i never authorized them to withdraw from my account!!! they created 2 checks: chk#22790 for $99.000, and the next day they charged me again!!! And another fake unauthorized check creation!

    They did the same thing to my Aunt! She was able to talk to her bank and they sent it back to Platinum. It was refused by bank and acct. holder! I did look up the area code and prefix and from what I have found out about this company, they are out of CA... North Hollywood ... Los Angeles to be exact. The zip code there is 91605. Maybe if you look it up with the city/county info and business name you can get to the bottom of it. Good Luck! btw a great website to search is
