Overpayment Scam
inflated charge for investment program 
Email Address:
Scam Website:
The site advertised a plan to invest in special situations in the stock/option market.
It was suggested that the price was reduced or negligible, but no price was stated until the reader was required to submit his bank card information.
Only then was it revealed that the charge would be $1950.
I immediately rejected it, but the publication nevertheless put the charge through and my bank accepted it, creating a $700 overdraft.
The publication refuses to make any adjustment quicker than their normal time, which is 5 to 7 business days. The bank refuses to provide a temporary credit since I was able to speak with the "merchant"
I am left with inability to use my bank account for a week and a half, completely halting my business.
Because the publication withdrew $1950 from my account without authorization I cannot carry on my business.
I am losing money every day because of their application of a charge that I had canceled.
