While the country is on lockdown, and no one can travel anywhere, someone in Florida managed to get my debit card, and went to Walgreen’s and hit me with $105.95 twenty + times. So, Chase took my $900 it took forever to save, and $1300 more dollars, and claims it was me in Florida that did it. How the hell did I get to Florida? We have curfews and they lock you up for not wearing a mask, and I am going to Florida?

Who is going to baby sit my animals? They won’t go anywhere. So James and I took off to Florida, leaving $900 in the bank? What were we planning on using for money? I guess that we’re independently wealthy? Right, we got rich after Wachovia back in 2002 stole $600,000.00 in investements from us, with the aid of DeKalb County Probate Court (another really long story, for which I have all the evidence), and James is 100% disabled, since he could not get a knee operation when he got hit by a car in 1990, he became 100% disabled, and receives Supplemental Security Income, and I guess we got rich off of that.

Or was it from my inheritance? My mama had three kids still living, and there was a struggle over the inheritance, then since Wachovia had stolen our investments, we had to live off of my inheritance till it ran out. $10,000 kept us alive for two years through trading, just short of day trading, until all that was gone. Then I started freelance virtual paralegal, and trust me that won’t get anyone rich.

So after struggling to finally save $900, someone in Florida ended up stealing my identity, and Chase at first reversed the charges, and put the $900 back into my account but sent me a letter stating that I could not access the money, because they were doing an investigation, and if they found against us, they would take the money. I did everything I was supposed to do when your identity gets stolen. Had a DeKalb County Police Report filed, contacted the FTC and did identity theft report there, contacted the CFPB and complained about Chase, and put an alert on my credit reports.

Today, April 28, 2020, they took the $900 back out of my account. I guess they decided that I had done it.

Lets go back to the day it happened. I received a call on April 22nd a little before noon. I didn’t make it to the phone in time, but the caller called right back. I managed to answer the phone, and some lady said she was Lisa from Chase calling. “Lisa” asked me some yes or no questions. For example she would ask you’re debit card number is XXXXX____, and I said yes. Then she asked me, your account number is xxxxx___ and I said yes. Then she told me my street address, and I said yes. That is exactly what Chase had done in the past, in order to confirm my account info.

She proceeded to tell me that Chase had noticed that someone in Florida was using my debit card at Walgreens near Palm Beach. She said that they were going to try to catch the people using my card, but the card at that time had a hold on the card. Someone was debiting my card for $105.95, multiple times. She said not to worry, there was a freeze on my account.

Later that day, I checked my account, and sure enough there were multiple debits against my account from a Walgreens in Florida. I checked to make sure there had been a freeze put onto my account. It did not show a freeze, so I put a hold on my account. I tried to call Chase, but there was a 25+ minute wait, so I figured the account was locked down, and since Chase had called me, everything was ok, cause they knew what was going on.

The crooks hit my debit card with 22 total times at Walgreens. I had $900 in my account. Can you believe Chase’s sorry ass let every transaction go through? I don’t believe it either, they would have cut me off from continuing without the money. I know for a fact, I have overdrawn before and they refused the transaction.

Anyway, the next morning, I checked my account, and it still showed that all those debits had gone through, at that time, I was $1300 in the hole and my $900 gone. I called the number that Lisa had called from the day before, when she told me what was happening to my account. The person answered the phone “Arvest Bank”, and I inquired about what bank, and they said Arvest Bank. I told them that Lisa had called me the day before from that number and asked if Lisa was in. They said no, that she was not there. I asked if she had been there the day before, and they said she might have been.

I called Chase, after being on hold for over 20 minutes, someone answered my call. I told them Lisa from Chase had called me the day before, and all what happened. They said there is no record of anyone named Lisa calling me from Chase. I got a really sick feeling in my stomach. I knew what was going to happen from then on. I called Chase no less than 5 times that day, the shortest hold was 22 minutes. I was arguing with Chase all day.

I called them back the next day around 3 times. The last time, a nicer lady answered and talked with us. She agreed that it was crazy to think we had gone on vacation during the lockdown. She advised that they were closing our account, and that we should open a new account. So that is what I did. I opened a brand new checking account, thinking I could transfer the $900 showing back in our account, to the new account. Plus James’s SSI check and both our stimulus checks would be coming soon, and I needed an account for the money to go into. PLUS I needed to pay some bills.

I receieved the letter from Chase saying that they had put the money back into our account, but we could not access the account, that if after their investigation, they found in our favor, they would release the funds. That was April 25th. I have tried to transfer the money numerous times since they put the money back, I have bills to pay, none of the attempts worked

I checked the account around 7PM on the 28th, today. The account has a balance of $00.00. I think the fine employees at Chase stole the cash. Just like when they created all of those charge accounts for people without the people’s knowledge. They got away with it, so the latest thing is stealing money from accounts.

The odd thing is how did Lisa at Arvest Bank know about it, and know all of my information?
