    I just wanted to let you all know to make sure if you are using a check card that is provided to you through your local banks, to purchase things instead of writing checks, to look at your statements carefully. There seems to be a problem with some of the chain stores double dipping your account. I can speak from experience now. I have been double dipped for $500 out of my checking account. At first I just thought it was a fluke, now I see three stores have double dipped. If you are able to check your accounts online I would do so immediately, and if you notice there is a problem, then you will have to go to the bank to fill out some forms, as do I after work tonight.

    From what the bank is telling me, it isn't really which store that it is happening at, but rather the service those stores use to process these debt transactions. They told me they have had numerous reports from people regarding Walmart, Home Depot, Sprint PCS, and Best Buy.

    So basically the company that handles all these chain stores Debit transactions is making some kind of mistake, or its a software glitch.

    Guys, this is right up my alley, the problem is casued my the systems that the stores/fininancial insitutions use. In the Southwest area, its MAC (Money Access Systems). These errors usually get corrected once MAC runs their tapes & has to balance, but it could lead to MAJOR problems reg folks like us!

  8. i check my accounts every day on line. in the last five years i've found five mistakes. thanks to the on line banking it hasn't presented me with any problems. i have found, however, over 10 times where i was charged a company for something i didn't want. i think it's called forcing. you answer a questioneer or enter a contest and the next thing you know you have purchased some thing you didn't know you had. i've never had a problem getting the cost of the recredited to my account. the problem is that it usualy takes 4-6 weeks. usualy it's some form of insurance.
