Idk what to do about this....I'm in college and I don't really have a job so this is one of the worst things ever....I emailed my bank(Wells Fargo) to see if they could reverse the overdraft but idk....I'll keep everyone up dated. :oops:

These folks are still at it. I received a letter from them today postmarked in Canada, signed John J. Mahoney. Their return address 125 Tuckahoe Rd., Yonkers, NY 10710. Phone number (647) 861-3900. Account mgr. name Mike Davis. Check enclosed for $2,960.00 from Ventura Foods, LLC of Brea, CA. All the same details in the letter as others have noted here. My first clue that is was fishy was the bad grammar used in the letter. It makes me crazy that crooks are out there ripping people off. Thank you for your service Scan Victims United!
