08/22/2005: "Not even your checks are safe!"
I found out today that a guy named David Brock has been using the electronic routing number from one of my checks to pay for his monthly $5.95 MSN Money services... for THIRTYFOUR payments!
Someone else here in Juneau couldn't figure out what some generic looking fee for $5.00 was each month so the bank tracked it back to an internet cafe here in juneau where an employee from the coffee shop next door had signed up for online porno using her electronic routing number. It's the same coffee shop I go to all the time so this might be the same asshole.
The moral of the story is to be REALLY vigilent. This is the 4th time I've been screwed by online banking, another example being the recent credit card incident (someone accessed my account online, changed my mailing address to somewhere in North Carolina and started charging up a storm, even after I'd set up a fraud alert on my account with Equifax) now this!
