    INICIS INTERNET PAYMEN SEOUL KR....

    took 3200 out of my checking account....

    Sad thing, is that there was only 2100 in there so I am 970 or so in the whole..

    Bank is closed so cant file a report, but got the card associated to it closed

    Well...Back at it again

    This am got 3206.24 and 96.19 taking out

    Bank claims that the amount son Monday were the feelers so to speak..Claiming that these charges today are the original ones..

    Not separate transactions..


    Now Bills are being bounced, and returned, already got something like $170.00 in fees..

    They said those fees will be fixed once it is investigated

    Hi, I found this post through a google search because I was also a victim of this scam. I had almost the exact charges taken out from INICIS Seoul Korea. I also bank with TCF and the charges were from my Visa check card. All of my internet shopping is done with paypal so I believe it's a security issue on the part of TCF. It's been about a week and the charges still haven't been reversed. Please let me know if you find anymore information on these charges.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Yeah, good luck LT. This really sucks. I've had my credit card cloned once, and it's a pain in the ***, to contact the bank, and to prove that it wasn't my expenses...

    Now know that the fraud charges should be put back in this week while the investigation goes on..

    It could take up till May for them to determine if they were fake LOL ( that is what I was told) and that is when I get back my bounce check fees all $210 worth

    I can call the actual department in 50 minutes to talk to some one that knows EXACTLY whats going on instead of the phone tellers

    That's good you got your cash back fairly quickly. Still don't understand why it takes so long to investigate the charges though. From what I've read online this scam has hit more than a few people and always with TCF/Visa check cards. I'm still waiting for my claim to go through. I'll have to call them tomorrow.

    They have to investigate thoroughly because a lot of people buy things and then say they didn't buy them and their card number got stolen.

    It's a matter of proof... If you can prove that you weren't on those places in the time the thief bought them, then it should be a lot quicker...

    But it's hard, I've been through that...
