Bad Banks

From the DH:

“What they’re doing is stealing from me. I’ve never had anything to do with them,” said Hammersley, 53. “I cannot see how a company can come up with my account number and debit card and pin number and the whole works without US (Bank) giving or divulging that information, because I have had absolutely no affiliation with them at all.”

Collecting unauthorized charges is called “cramming” and it’s illegal, said Jan Margosian, spokeswoman for the Oregon Department of Justice.

It isn’t just US Bank, said Leah Grey of Portland, the other person who filed an AIG cramming complaint with the state this year. She said she found her charge on a Washington Mutual account.

Grey said in May, a telemarketer said she was eligible for an insurance deal as a member of Washington Mutual. Grey declined and hung up. About a month later, her checking account showed a $24.95 withdrawal for the insurance plan.

She is continuing to dispute the charge, but so far has received no compensation.

Holy ****.
