Hey you know this is an excellent article and a great thread! S&F!
I'll tell you what the Wachovia one has me thinking, you see I had postdated a check many years ago in Philadelphia, I had to open an account at
Wachovia because I won ten thousand dollars through Pennsylvania lottery and they would not cash it(It was a Wachovia check). Well, so I did and they
said the money would be available on the third day after (which was a business day) that I deposited it, so for my son's football league and my
daughters (2) cheerleading league at the same field I post dated a check for the third day when my money was supposed to be available(In the AM when
the bank opens she said the money would be in) Well wachovia put the check through to bounce it before they made the money available to me(I am 150%
sure this was no accident!) So I say okay M&&& F&&& I got your number, mmmhhhhmmm I stopped the check(So they didn't put it through another time) went
into the bank and said "I am here to draw out my money" And of course they went through the spiel well you gotta pay for the overdraw, I said fine
take it out and give me what ever's left ( the fee was $25 bucks) Anyway so they did and it was like 6,000 something left (After taxes it was only a
7500 and some odd dollar check after the tax they take off the top) OK they didn't pay the check and the overdraft was like 25 bucks WTF is a thousand
dollars??? OK I didn't question it, I just said screw it, I wouldn't have gotten a straight answer anyway, you know how these banks are (probably
service fees and other BS.) whatever. Now they have a frikking thing on my credit for 380$ ??????
Now mind you ONE THOUSAND of my money
disappeared already!!!! This was in less than a week when I pulled it out the money!!! All the fees were paid(I asked when I pulled it out, and was
assured I would be at zero balance.) I never ever had any other account with them, mind you...but there on my credit report It says I owe them $380
and ohhhhh will I be fighting this I hope I help get them jailed!!!!!!! At least they're already being sued so, I'm going to be next in line they
EFFED up my credit since 2008(when it was put on there) I just looked the first time since 2008 at my credit report(I am not usually very current on
looking I so forget from year to year so) But yeah they are scammers. IDK how they're getting away with this crap!!!!!! Oh funniest part they never
ever ever sent me a letter about any funds owed to them, which makes it totally illegal to put it on my credit report at all!!!!!
