I have been the victim of unauthorised debit orders.
On 2013/07/31 my bank account was debited with 2 debit orders to the value of R199 each. After investigating with ABSA and the t/p service provider Stratcol I established that the stop order was conducted by Platinum Credit Card Corporation in Cape Town - a company I have never heard of prior to 2013/07/31.
After several attempts I managed to speak to Marelise and I informed her that I have never heard of her business and I have not authorised them to take money from my bank account. She promised to get back to me by the close of business on 2013/07/31, but as expected this did not occurr.
To my shock and horror, this morning 2013/08/01, 2 further stop orders to the value of R250 each were taken from my bank account by the same company!!
I have attempted to contact Marelise again this morning without success and she has not returned my calls.
In the interim I have reported the matter to the National Credit Regulator in order for them to investigate the matter.
I would like to know from Platinum Credit Card Corporation where they obtained my bank details and who authorised the debit orders.
