This will most likely be a big news report by Monday evening because I have just read two identical accounts to my own.
I received bank statement yesterday(Friday 6/8), which showed overdraft amount in my checking account. I called my bank and was told that a check had been processed for $100 to Intabill. The check was dated 2/28/07. This is the exact same date as was reported by the other two reports, from two different states.
When asked what the total overdraft amount was, I was told it was more than $200, which led me to ask if there had been any other withdrawals from the account. They also found another $100 check that was processed to Intabill. It was dated 5/1/07.
The 2/28 check was cleared on 6/7, and the 5/1 check was cleared on 6/8.
Because the first overdraft hit my account on Thursday, the statement from the bank did not arrive until late Friday, and I did not see it until this morning. The department in charge of this at my bank will not be open until Monday, so I cannot clear this up with them. I am anticipating that I will need to close my account to protect myself from any further unauthorized withdrawals from that account, since somehow my account number and name are in the hands of someone I don't know.
