My sister bought a few things through Dell a couple years back. Dell's financing division automatically withdraws a set amount from her bank account every month.
Late last month, they withdrew the amount of her monthly payment three times within as many days. So, naturally, she was all "wtf?!" She called her bank today to sort things out. Turns out someone at Dell that has her bank account info is stealing her money. They are most likely loading it onto a card that has been programmed with her account info. Her account had been flagged for fraudulent activity as soon as that happened. She should have been informed of this immediately, but apparently, since her regular paychecks are under $500, tellers at the bank did not know about the flag, and thus couldn't pass this info on to her. Which seems kind of silly to me, but I guess that's the way of the world.
Anyway. I'm wondering if anyone else has run into this. My sister was informed that, obviously, she's not the only victim of this, and something is going to go down soon enough, and Dell's getting investigated.
