i sent ameriloan a certified letter not to debit my bank account anymore,but today they did so by a check can they do this

Tina, they are ruthless!

You have revoked the right to have them debit your account, yet they continue to do so. I have seen others on this board have success with going after them thru their ACH processor. You might want to give that a shot.

Otherwise, the only way to prevent them from taking $ from your account is to close it and open another one.

Tina, are you saying they deposited a check? Maybe you should stop payment on the check. I'm not really sure how it works when a check is involved, but hopefully someone else will be along shortly to advise. :)

Is this a check that you wrote to them when you took out the loan?

Get right on the phone call Intercept EFT at 1-800-378-3328, ask to speak with Cindy. Tell her that you have revoked authorization on your bank account but ameriloan is still trying to access it. I realize that they put a papercheck through but that is not to say that they will not ask Intercept to try and debit on a revoked account at some other time. Cover your bases. Then you need to send an email to Ameriloan letting them know that you have spoken with Intercept. When I called, Ameriloan had not tried to debit my account for several months but I explained that the possibility of them debiting did exist and I wanted it to stop. You have to stop them at every turn and be one step ahead to do so. Good luck. Keep us posted.

They did the same thing to my account, I revoked the ach authorization and they put through a paper check that they had created a few days later. I disputed it with my bank & was able to get the funds reversed.

I would dispute the check with your bank and get them to reverse it.

This is a classic example of why it is important to close a bank account, because even when you revoke authorization to debit an account, they will try whatever trick they can!

I'm wondering if when a person sends in a revocation letter that they be very specific stating "that they revoke any debits such as ACH, manual check or ANY OTHER MEANS OF WITHDRAWING MONEY FROM SAID ACCOUNT."

ameriloan tried to do that with me a few years ago. I revoked ACH on my account and placed a hard hold on it. After the ACH was sent back to them, they generated a paper check with my account info and tried to send it through my account. Somewhere in their documents it states that if ACH is revoked they will generate a check for the full amount and send it through. Several of these payday loan places try to do this.

I think that pretty much all of my PDLs stated that if the ACH got squashed they had the right to produce a paper document. I don't know if they ever tried as I closed my account pronto.

I just blocked an ACH debit from usfastcash yesterday and I'm nervous they will try to send the paper check through. I won't be able to put a hard hold on my account until Friday because I have a payment that was supposed to post yesterday that hasn't posted yet. I'm sending them out a letter today revoking authoriztion to make any further debits attempts on my account.
