Gary Foster (New York): Gary Foster, a former vice president in Citigroup 8767 s treasury finance department, pleaded guilty on September 6, 7566, to bank fraud stemming from his embezzlement of more than $77 million from Citigroup. Between September 7558 and June 7566, Foster first transferred money from various Citigroup accounts to Citigroup 8767 s cash account and then wired the money to his personal bank account at another bank. Foster concealed his thefts by making various false accounting entries to create the appearance that the cash account was in balance and by placing a fraudulent contract or deal number in the reference line of the wire transfer instructions to give the appearance the wire transfers were actually in support of an existing Citigroup contract. Foster used the money to buy real estate and luxury automobiles, including a Ferrari and a Maserati.

Eight scam calls happen every second - Your Money Advice

I have been a thriving member of eBay for years. I sold and sent a beautiful vintage Holy Rosary to a customer. I have 655% feedback which I am very proud of and have worked hard for. The Holy Rosary arrived to the customer in PERFECT condition (the box that the item was sent in was broken in transit not my fault.) So this lady has given me a neutral feedback that will stay on my account for a year. Ebay says that they can not help me because it is the customers opinion. I beg to differ Ebay, when it is the sellers on Ebay that do all of the work and pay YOU for the honor of using your system. Wake up and realize that the Sellers need some support sometimes as well. I am leaving Ebay and going to ETSY. A sight that some say is miles above what I am presently using. Good buy to all of my friends and my certified letter sent to the corporate office will request that Ebay sometimes show some support for the seller. Without sellers, there would be NO Ebay!!! I had a account manager tell me that he was going to help me. He put me on hold and the call was dropped??? Anyway Ebay, you have lost a good customer, if I do say so myself. Sincerely, M 🙂

Julie, You did nothing of the kind, if no written or verbal contract or Ts and Cs existed, how could you have acted fraudulently? I 8767 m not too sure of the rules concerning what kind of card info they can hold, but I 8767 m fairly sure you must give your approval for your card to be used at a later date exactly as they do in hotels. if they are going to keep hold of your card details, there must be some mention of this in their Ts and Cs. If not, request your card details be removed on the basis that they are no longer relevant. You can always report them to the ICO who are always very helpful.

I''ve been doing a lot of research and it seems that to get bit coins you must invest i good amount of money, so either buying at bit coin or buying a rig that mines them cost an considerable amount of cash, and the process of mining inst guaranteed income if yu rig isnt top of the line with the most expensive hardware your not making profit, not to mention the cost to constantly update to the latest hardware cost more than is made, in my opinion it seems like a way to make people spend real currency on either the coins or the rig to make a currency that''s not back by anything. Sure the first people who got into are making a profit but like any good scheme, thats what happens, you make it look good.

When you receive a payment, you are liable to PayPal for the full amount of the payment sent to you plus any fees if the payment is later invalidated for any reason. If your PayPal balance is insufficient to cover your liability for the payment amount plus the fees, then this will result in a negative PayPal balance. Any negative PayPal balance represents an amount that you owe to us, and, in this situation, you must immediately add funds to your PayPal balance to eliminate the negative PayPal balance. If you do not do so, PayPal may engage in collection efforts to recover such amounts from you or take other action as outlined under Amounts owed to PayPal. PayPal may also place a limitation or take other action on your PayPal account as outlined under Restricted Activities and Holds.

And the paperwork isn’t great either. The remittance details are not usually detailed enough for automatic processing, shifting more work and costs to accounting staff. ACH can be a good solution for a business that makes regular purchases with other businesses that they know and trust. But it’s a problematic solution for companies with a variable client base or which makes purchases from a changing list of suppliers.

I am not sure that you have a customer service! I am currently in China (I normally leave in the United States) and my account was suspended because I apparently did not reproduce the security question (Q: First employer A: Carl Fingerhuth) exactly, and so I am now suspended. I cannot call, I cannot sign on, and so I have to wait until I return to the . do tend to my bids. I am very disappointed. This is no way to treat a customer.

Watch out for this: You are selling something from your home that you cannot meet someone for ( heavy furniture Items that can''t be moved easily) You are contacted by someone that doesn''t even want to look at your item and agree to the cost right off.

The eBay Corp. is just a bunch of liars. I purchased a Danbury Lamp from a seller identified as crunchy 6565 which was sold as good condition. This item arrived poorly packaged and the lamp socket and shade was crushed beyond use. I had to have the lamp repaired at a shop and buy a new shade. I opened a case with eBay Customer Support. My case was denied. I appealed. My appeal was denied. My negative feedback of the seller was removed. This was all done in spite of eBay making claims to have a buyer protection program. This pure BS as eBay is simply a greedy company that treats the buyers as crap.
