For pity's sake---don't post your personal identifying information on a public website!
You need to contact your bank ASAP and have your account closed, since you have advertised the name of it and your account number to the world.
Electronic Communictions have given thieves a whole new field in which to play. All it takes is someone with half the brain to come up with computer programs that can slither around "brick walls", and the monsters are in. We are in a war with these people for our privacy. We must be on the alert continually, and take action for ourselves (the bank should have told you more about who they called, the number, where, and when).
THEY WROTE AN ELECTRONIC CHECK ON MY ACCOUNT BACK IN JANUARY 2013 & I WAS AT THE BANK WHEN I FOUND OUT THERE WAS A CHECK WRITTEN FOR $152.69 & THE BANK CALLED & SOMEONE TOLD THE BANK IT WOULD BE IN MY ACCT IN 3-7 DAYS & HERE IS JULY & I STILL HAVEN'T SEEN NO MONEY FROM THEM. I'M ON SOCIAL SECURITY & COULD REALLY USE IT. MY CHECK WAS STAMPED FOR DEPOSIT ONLY AT THE BANK OF KENTUCKY RETURN ACCT [removed]& HAS SOME OTHER INFORMATION ON IT ALSO IF ANYONE KNOWS HOW WE CAN GET THIS MONEY BACK PLEASE WRITE ME @ [removed]
They got me for over 300. No phone call, just an electronic check showed up at my bank. The check was generated from East West Bank in Waco, Texas.
Does anyone think there is possible to get this money back? They took 207. out of my acct., I am disabled and i'm on a fixed income. I'm sure everyone needs the money back but how????? I am so frustrated that this creep can do this. I'm going to the bank on Monday and i'm going to take a copy of all your complaints with me maybe there is something they can do. Joyce
I had the same thing happen to me. Unfortunely the check was already paid. I called the number on the check and the lady told me she had to have someone call me back and it would take between 3 - 7 days and someone would call me back. I've gotten no call. I called my bank and they said they would put a appeal on it. I have to call my bank on Monday. How do they get this information and how do they get away with doing it? Does anyone have a phone number? Thanks, Joyce
BTW they didn't call me on the phone it just showed up on my bank acct.
No Sucker Here
This scum of the earth tried to get money( $308.06) from my account. I was able to obtain the front/back check image which had the depositor's information. I have contacted my bank and the scum bag's bank. I was able to obtain the address of Joe Men Inc in Oregon. I am now in the process of contacting the Attorney General's office in Oregon and my home state. It is my mission to take this scum bag down!!! Here is the scum bags's information.... I hope he/she is reading this now !!!!
Joe Men Inc.
1750 Delta Water Road Suite 102-104
Medford, OR 97504
I am still searching for a working phone number so that I can curse this person his entire family.
They took $330.00 out of my account! It was a draft to Joe Men. I've never heard of them.......
Just had a company named joe men inc. with the same# 8554477448 remove funds from my account by an unauthorized check
cathy & tim
I noticed that they took $317.97 from my account also. I had the bank send me an electronic copy and one of the things I noticed is that the account number isn't on the check, only the member number. I brought this to my banks attention as well so that they can look into better ways of protecting their customers. All checks have the account number.
There must be a common link because this happened once before and I changed my account number and never pay by check via the phone to anyone.
Joe Men Inc.......LOSERS!
got me for the same just remove money from my acct. don't know where they came from.
got me for $322.03 happend 4 months ago to and my bank sent it back and got my money back hope it works this time too b*****ds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They posted a fake check for over $200.00 against my account using the name of Joe Men and giving a phone number. When I call the phone number, it either goes directly to voice mail or just continues to ring without anyone answering. I was checking my account online and noticed the pending charge. The bank put a stop payment on it before it was processed. It cost me $35.00 to stop payment, but at least these pigs aren't getting a dime from me. I hope they burn in hell!
I got hit too. I checked my bank account this morning to find out that a check was posted for over $300 and a check number that was not even close to being in sequence. I called my bank and they sent me over a digital copy of the check and it was just that......a digital check paid to the order of Joe Men Inc. Fortunately, I have a great bank and they are refunding my money back in to my account and are conducting research for fraud. I hope they catch the b*****ds!
They took money out of my checking account with a virtual check.
Same people got us too.
Hopefully, they will die by a small, steady fire.
Joemen inc was company who electronically accessed our bank account. (Need i say theft?)
Got me too
Just had money taken out of my bank account by a company called "Moving Forward" and in the Memo area of the check was the number listed. (855)-447-7448. I've never talked to anyone or given information out that might have caused this. So just be careful. Having to contact my bank.
The same with my brother. We are trying to uncover the villain. Have you contacted the police? Should you find our please share, I'll do the same.
New Variation on Telephone Collection Scam Related to Delinquent Payday Loans
02/21/12?The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) continues to receive complaints from victims of payday loan telephone collection scams. As previously reported in December 2010, the typical payday loan scam involves a caller who claims the victim is delinquent on a payday loan and must make payment to avoid legal consequences.
Callers pose as representatives of the FBI, ?Federal Legislative Department,? various law firms, or other legitimate-sounding agencies and claim to be collecting debts for companies such as United Cash Advance, U.S. Cash Advance, U.S. Cash Net, or other Internet check-cashing services. The fraudsters relentlessly call the victim?s home, cell phone, and place of employment in attempts to obtain payment. The callers refuse to provide information regarding the alleged payday loan or any documentation and become verbally abusive when questioned.
The IC3 has observed variations of this scam in which the caller tells the victim that there are outstanding warrants for the victim?s arrest. The caller claims that the basis of the warrants is non-payment of the underlying loan and/or hacking. If it?s the latter, the caller tells the victim that he or she is wanted for hacking into a business? computer system to steal customer information. The caller will then demand payment via debit/credit card; in other cases, the caller further instructs victims to obtain a prepaid card to cover the payment.
The high-pressure collection tactics used by the fraudsters have also evolved. In one recent complaint, a person posed as a process server and appeared at the victim?s job. In another instance, a phony process server came to a victim?s home. In both cases, after claiming to be serving a court summons, the alleged process server said the victim could avoid going to court if he or she provided a debit card number for repayment of the loan.
If you are contacted by someone who is trying to collect a debt that you do not owe, you should:
?Contact your local law enforcement agencies if you feel you are in immediate danger;
?Contact your bank(s) and credit card companies;
?Contact the three major credit bureaus and request an alert be put on your file;
?If you have received a legitimate loan and want to verify that you do not have any outstanding obligation, contact the loan company directly;
?File a complaint at www.IC3.gov.
they are a scam, they called my phone looking for someone else, and when i gave them my name to prove i wasnt, they told me now they would put that debt in my name, i told them good luck. please report them. and what ever you do DO NOT PAY THEM OR GIVE THEM YOUR INFORMATION!!!
they took money ut of my account. Don't know who they are,
