Beware GE Money Bank/GEMB
Just wanted to post this for everyone's info. If you have any accounts through GEMB then please pull your credit report and check them carefully!!! My husband had several accounts through this company in the form of home depot, lowes, and care credit. We received a bill from home depot 2 days ago and there was a fraudulent charge of 3200 on it. My husband called and was told he had bought 2 plasma tvs at a store 250 miles from our home. He disputed the charge and now has to complete paperwork on it and deal with that process. He then pulled a credit report and found that two accounts under walmart and sams club (also GEMB) had been opened in his name and maxed out. He contacted Lowes card which was showing up okay on the report and learned that his credit limit had been raised 4000 dollars last month (AT HIS REQUEST???) and that another 3300 in fraudulent charges had been placed on it. He has disputed all of these, closed any account not affected and frozen all of his othes to prevent new charged. We have placed a fraud alert with the CRA's and filed disputes on the GEMB accounts as well. As soon as we get the information packets from the companies then we plan to report to FTC and file police report on identity fraud. We can not help but believe that this information has been stolen by an employee and used or information sold. We will never use store cards through GEMB again. Sorry for long rant but everyone please check your information and be very careful with GEMB!
