Have you been ICHed?

March 11, 2008 at 9:26 am 1 comment

I came across an article on KETV 7’s (Omaha) website this morning about a mysterious charge appearing on people’s bank statements. According to the article, a company, listed as Ich Services, is charging folks just under $10 each month. The featured couple had no idea who this company was let alone what the services were for. They eventually had to get a new account number and canceled the older one to prevent further charges.

It appears, however, that this isn’t the first and only case. After a quick Google search, the Running Down Debt blog posted about this mysterious charge back in November of 2007. By looking at the number of responses, this has been occurring over the last few months and has affected consumers all over the U.S. And, this isn’t limited to just bank accounts, in the Running Down Debt blog, it’s clear that these charges are appearing on credit card statements as well.

What do you if this has affected you? First and foremost, notify your bank or credit card company about the fraudulent charge. Then cancel the account that’s been affected and open a new one. If, however, this hasn’t affected you, great. But, keep an eye out. Check your statements as they arrive to ensure your account is safe.

    It’s a little bit different here in my country, I had a waiting account money bound to the ATM and the people at that bank returned my money to Paypal when they received it and said that the deposit name does not match my name because at Paypal’s invoice, it was a business name.
