Without knowing who did it, how could anyone possibly tell you why it happened?

It says USA BENEFITS 8008095986 and $19.95 leaving me with 24cents. I almost got an overdraft, I called the number and it say they are closed until Monday. I found this page by putting the phone number in google.

USA Benefits...this scam is a couple of years old.

Dispute as fraudulent activity with your bank.
Inform (not threaten) USA Benies that you are filing a formal complain.
File a complaint with your state's attorney general.
You might also try filing a complaint with the FTC.

I've heard that this scam has happened to consumers trying to obtain a free credit report, or a payday loan. If this happened to you as a result of trying to view your credit reports, the only site I am certain to be legit is annualcreditreport.com. If payday loans were involved: STAY AWAY FROM PDLs, and click the "debt forums" link at the top of the page for more info.

This is an old scam and you can learn a lot from the debt forum. Do inform your bank and they will help you out. File a complaint with the AG and FTC.

You can also file a complaint at www(dot)ic3(dot)gov

Tonya,
This is a credit forum, this site does not debit checking accounts. If you give us more information on the company who debited your account, we can search and see if we can find out more about them.

Terry, you need to do as advised above, I had this happen to me a few months ago and had to sign paperwork at my bank disputing the charged. I did not have it taken out by this company but another, your bank should also refund an overdraft charges that this caused to.

Tonya I think that you are looking for USA Benefits who debited your account. Talk to bank and immediately do a reverse pay. This is a fraud case and I guess you have given your checking account information without finding out the legitimacy of the advert. If so I think you can talk to bank and let them take actions. Say it was an unauthorized access.

Banks should have that option in place, mine was really cooperative, it took me about ten business days to get my money back from some company that was collecting for Direct tv, it was JFYC, Just For You Communications. I called Direct tv and they had no knowledge of the alledged account. This company was not the one who returned my money, it was my bank that went after it. It was for $66, quite a bit. I don't have that kind of money to let them play with and even if I have other things I would rather pay for with it.

You have debited my account for $19.95 and I deleted the page without submitting the information. Please re-deposit the money back into my account. I am giving the bank a copy of the debit and I am informing them to redirect the debit and put it back into my account.

Alice-this site is not USA Benefits. This is a credit forum. Please see the previous posts to help solve your issues.

usually you can go to your bank and file a dispute and they will help you recover your money.

Elisa, I think you should call your atty generals office and seek some assistance from them. You may be able to also file a lawsuit against that company. If you informed your bank that this should nopt have been coming out of your account then any further deductions from that place should have stopped when you first informed your bank.
Banks are to help you with this delimma. I would consider changing banks and shutting down the account.
