Consumer Complaint: Hello!

An employee of XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX fraudulently charging my debit card for his insurance plus he tried to spend XXXX at XXXX online when my bank called and shut down my card because of abnormal activity on XXXX XXXX, XXXX. An employee of XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX, called me from a different number ( his cell phone ) at XXXX pm to tell me my card number was invalid. I then explained to him that yes it is because I had some fraudulent charges on it. He seemed sympathetic etc and I told him that I would be getting a new card and would call him with that information. I called his office the next day, because I thought it was odd that he was calling me at XXXX and asked to speak to a supervisor. The man that answered the phone said he no longer works there. XXXX called me the next day while I was on a lunch break to ask if I had received a new card. I said Im a little confused because originally you told me that XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX does not accept debit cards and if you dont accept them why would you need it? He said because it would be a backup in case I didnt pay. I then informed him that I called the office and they said he no longer worked there. He denied it and asked who said that? I told him I didnt catch his name. I told him to call me back around XXXX and I would get the card and give him the number. He never called and Im assuming he knew that I knew it was him that did the fraudulent charges. I called XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX because I never got a call back, and asked to speak to a supervisor. The lady said she could help so I told her the story. She said you need more than a supervisor and placed me on hold. I spoke with XXXX XXXX, XXXX XXXX and told him my story again. He said XXXX no longer works there and that the XXXX had done this to another lady and she was filing a police report and that they, XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX, were filing something also. He asked me to fax him a copy of the police report when I got it.

XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX. took me to court over an old credit card debt. The credit limit was XXXX or XXXX} and now is XXXX that XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX bought from Main Street Acquisition Corp. I asked if they would drop the interest off and I was told that he would fight it and so I agreed to pay XXXX a month. I would think that XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX would have some type of responsibility for their employees. I have written an email to XXXX XXXX on XXXX XXXX, XXXX and as of today XXXX XXXX, XXXX I never received a response to that email. I did receive a letter dated XXXX XXXX, XXXX saying they have n’t received my payment. I do not think that I should owe anything on this debt after an employee of their company wrongfully used my debit card. That person would have never had my debit card number if he was not a collector on an account of XXXX, XXXX XXXX XXXX. They have some liability for this/his action.
