Avianca Pn Informative - Fraudulent Purchase
I just arrived from work and received a call from my bank, Chase, informing me that a couple of charges were made out of the ordinary from my regular habits. The first transaction was made, I'm assuming, to see if the card was valid. The company that charged my account was DeVorss & Company (A book store out of California)for $1.89. This was the first red flag my bank put up, because I live in the midwest. Then 3 minutes later a transaction for $1250.74 was trying to get posted. The company that tried to charge my card was Avianca Pn., a southAmerican airline company, luckily my bank did not approve this transaction. I tried to call the DeVorss & Company number, 800-843-5743, and was not able to get in touch with them, because of their weird hours. I am going to see if they can give me information on the purchase made and from where it came from.
Come to find out the transactions are normally made before the weekend because any attempts to contact any one will not be possible because of the companies being closed on the weekends. So check your accounts before the wekends to see if any out of the ordinary purchaes have been made. They start out small, but then they hit you hard.
