No Phone call, but, Money was taken out of my account, without my authorization. The phone number is listed under a saddle hill electronics wholesaler in North Grafton, Massachusetts, not datasafe
Where here in Sept.2009 have you found out anything about this that can help me? Have these people been arrested? Where are they at? Why it the check on the front pay to Dss 888-205-8881 and on the back signed by Landmark Clearing?
My friends check was an old address and it was typed out to DSS 888-205-8881. But on the back of the check it was signed by Landmark Clearing. It was put into a bank in Lubbock Tx.79408. Does anyone have any info since this started last Sept.2008? Please help. Filed a police report.
Me too. These scumbags have taken over $500 out of my account on various dates. I left a message for the "Risk Management" team two days ago. No return phone call. What a joke. These people are thieves and are using peoples banking information fraudulently. What a joke. Scumbags!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The same thing happened to me. This company withdrew 394.00 from my account on 10/9/08. I didn't notice it until my bank statement came. I have tried to call the number given on the cleared check and I can't get in touch with anyone. Luckily my bank is going to reimberse me the money! Someone needs to stop these people. They need to get a real job and stop taking innocent people's money!!!!!!
Same story here ($394 by electronic check) in Missouri although I never recieved a call. This company tagged an account that I don't use very often, which it is why I did't catch it until yesterday. The address on the "check" is one I have never seen before (somewhere up in MI). My bank was great and put the money back right away. I have no idea how they got my info, it dosent seem like I have any obvious connection to the others who got hit here.
I too will be calling the AG in New York.
just wondering hor $394 is going to cause your children to go without?
I just got off the Phone with the New York County DA's Office, Special Prosecutions Bureau, (212) 335-8900.
PLEASE PLEASE CALL this office if you've had to deal with this company! The more complaints they get the more likely they will do something about it!!
Also, PLEASE CALL the Consumer Fraud & Protection Bureau at 212-416-8345!!
They never even bothered to call me!! They simply submitted an electronic check with an address that was FIVE YEARS OLD, and STOLE $394 dollars causing my rent check to bounce! I have NEVER given them authorization to debit my account. HUGE THEIVES who will not answer their own customer service calls!
I also was hit by these people and they took 394.00. My bank did give me my money back and we had to close the account and start a new one. I never did get a phone call it just showed up one day. They used an old address that i haven't lived at in over 5 and half yrs. What is this world coming to. What happened to people getting a job. I guess they think it's easier to take it from good hard working people like us. Big thanks to my bank for giving my money back. Good luck and best wishes to the rest of you.
Sorry,correction $394 is the amount taken from my husbands accout. I guess I am so discusted that I cant see or think correctly
My husband just checked his account (we have seperate banking) and the same people dinged him for $349 from his credit union. They used my name and an old address from 7 yrs ago. I have not been on my husbands checking account in about 2 mnths. They took the money on 10-09-08. Since he is our head of househould our rent is going to bounce, lots of checks are going to bounce,our children are going to go without. What a huge mess this is for all of us. OMG!!!! These people need to be caught and punished.We live in Oregon
the exact same thing happened to me they drew $394.00 out of my account, dont know how they got my account number and could not reach anyone at the number on the check. I was finally able to get some information from landmark clearing which was very helpful, they advised me that they old sold the softwear that data safe solutions use to process payments and the money does not go thru them at all. I contacted my bank and the police dept. and started proceedings to get my money back into my account.
No call. Hit my 89 year old aunt 2 times for $394. The bank was no help. they let any kind of electronic transfer go through, but won't honor a power of attorney to do legimate business. I didn't close her account fast enough.I am frustrated with both.
neither me nor my husband got a phone call, but on oct 7 and unauthorized check for 394.00 cleared my account. they used my husband's name, an address from 3 years ago and a check number that i haven't even gotten close to yet!!! i have called several times and spoke with a supervisor by the name of bill powers on tuesday, oct 14. I was told he would call me back that afternoon with a confirmation number and so far nothing!! i have called several more times and now he's never available. The others i talk to there say it "just my opinion" that the money was removed without my permission!!! my bank will not refund the money so we have to fill out an affidavit of fraud and send it to the federal reserve for processing!!! luckily it did cause anything to bouce, but i'm now having to pay quite a few bills late!!!!
hi i had 394.00 took out my account i got to get a police report i,m with srp bank . don,t no how they got my account number 10-10-08

i researched it on the computer printed a bunch of proof out and showed it to the bank and they are going to reimburst me
mother scammed too
My mom was not called on this either, we are in Arkansas, she just happen to be checking her account balance and seen the check for 394.00 and she called me, I did some calling and told her to call her bank, they gave her a copy of the check and she filled out a fraud statement, the bank did not allow the money to go thru. I wish there was some way of getting everyones money back! I have told every one I can think of to keep an eye on thier bank accounts!
Go online and file a report with the New York Attorney Generals and the one in your state. I also contacted and filed a report with the local FBI office.
Go online and find the New York attorney generals and the one in your state and file a complaint. I also contacted and filed a report with my local FBI office
The same thing has happened to me. I've been calling and can't get any answers. I've contacted my bank and they informed me to call the police. What steps did you take and have you gotten any of your money back?
I am in Charlotte, NC. The same thing happened to me on 10-14. What can we do??
$394 was taken from my account on 10-14. It seems like they are taken money from credit unions?? We all need to do something about this.
THEM ASSWHOLES.THEY TOOK 394.00 OUT OF MY CHECKING ACCOUNT.SAID THAT IT WAS AUTHORIZED AND IT WASN'T.
They got me too for $394. It was from an adress that I had 9 years ago. Pretty sure my bank will cover me but it happened on the 9th of OCT and i didnt notice till today. I called and spoke to Dierks from Landmark and he said I was about the 20th caller in the last hour to call about this. But he did give me a number:
201-786-3033. It conviently has a recording that they are not accepting phone calls.
I didn't receive a phone call but like many, many others I had $394 taken out of my account using an address that I have not lived at for 7 years and my previous last name. I tried to call the number that is listed on the check and conveniently, they have a recording up. I had went onto the website, datasafe solutions on Friday when I realized that this check had been cashed and it seemed to be selling you security from the exact thing they did. When I attempted to get on the site this morning there was a warning that the Oklahoma State Police and FBI are investigating this company and that it is a bogus company. I too cannot contact my bank until tomorrow as today is the holiday. I was flabbergasted when I googled Landmark Clearing and found this blog and to see how many more have been victimized.
I WAS TAKEN TWICE IN TWO WEEKS FOR THE AMOUNT OF 394.00 A WACK. I WOULD LIKE THE # FOR LANDMARK CLEARING. I DO NOT HAVE AN EMAIL ADRESS BUT I HAVE A CELL 541-287-0078. THANKS
I too was just taken of $394, the check # is one that has not been used yet and the address was from our home 5 years ago. I can't get to the bank until Tuesday because Monday is a holiday! My mortgage is going to bounce because of this. I hope my credit union will fry their @$$!
I too had a withdrawal from my Credit Union account. It was in the form of a business check paid to the order of Data Solutions and endorsed by Landmark Clearing. I also called and spoke to an Amy Marshal (after several calls of getting an answering machine). She also told me that they worked with 10 online companies. She said she would tell billing to
give me a call. I asked to be transferred and she said she could not do that. I asked for their number and couldn't get it. I asked for a LIST of the companies they represented and the telephone numbers of them and she said it was SECURE DATA. I have NO IDEA how they got my account numbers for my bank account. I TOO was told by the Credit union that I had to go to the police dept and file a forgery report and have it notorized and send the original to them with the case number for them to pursue it. What a mess!!! That is alot of money coming out of my account at the time when the economy is so bad. My bank will not put it back in until I file the report. HOGWASH--there was NO SIGNATURE on the check but just the words AUTHORIZATION ON FILE. Why did they cash it? Why did they let it go through? I am MAD they don't back this. They should at least have insurance for their mistakes and put it back into my account. I should not have to go through all this. THEY made the mistake of cashing a check WITHOUT MY SIGNATURE ON IT.!!
