Beware Strongbucks

So last week I had some money taken out of my account and finally today they could tell me who the hell did this shit. It was Strongbucks. I’m not even going to dignify with a URL. You can find all that information on your own. I have since discovered that it is somehow related to GreenZap and EcoEnergizer (which I have never heard of). But I did sign up with GreenZap a long, LONG time ago and used it once and that was it. It’s a moot point now because as soon as the money gets back into my account after I just had to have the bank fill out an affidavit, I’m not even chancing it and shutting that account down and opening up a new one. This so totally pisses me off. Now they are watching everything going in and out of my account and since I cleaned it out last Friday there’s nothing in there but since I have overdraft they could put another one through. It was cashed through Bank of America with an account # of 07250 41512. They faked my home address and my banks address. Hell, the numbers on the bottom with your routing number and check number aren’t even correct.

Update: Welp, it didn’t take long but now I am getting calls from Accu-Check because of this. How lovely. This is one disaster after another. This means that even if I wanted to keep that account open I couldn’t because there is no way in hell I am paying for a check that I did not write.

    Wow, that really stinks that they are doing that to you. Is there anyway you can press charges against them?

    I had the same thing happen to me, and had to cancel my checking account and open a new one. I just got done filing a police report. We need to do everything we can to catch these criminals. I also sent an email to my local TV station to inform them to make people aware of this scam. There is no end to what these people will do for money.

    That’s pretty freaky! I’m inspired to review every transaction on my checking account. 😕

    I too am a victim of Strongbucks. I am so very angry. I work so hard and cannot understand how someone could just steal what is not theirs.
    My kids count on me to take care of them. When I came up short $99.75 last week and could not grocery shop I was devastated. What kind of a person steals a childs food money?

    FYI- I too had an account with GreenZap a looong time ago. I do have an active account with Pay Pal though and use it often.
    Let’s keep this investigation active so we can catch these thieves!!!
