Cash Net USA can be a wrong number...

I am sure you are familiar by now with my computer system. Last month I was looking for some financial help with some truly needed dental work. Got an email that just gave me a phone number to call. That phone number had me call another number and it was answered by a Chicago number that identified themselves as Cash Net USA. After doing some confirmation, the number was qualified. Spoke with a representative, (now a hacker), and they requested that the only credit card I owed on had to be paid. They gave me an account number and routing number. Within 24 hrs the balance of just over $300.00 was paid off. The next day I dialed the number they had given me only to be told to dial another number and only speak to this one person. This person told me to wait a few hours and the money would be transferred to my account.
Because I was an idiot but also trying to be careful I tried to access my online account. Found out my Passcode and ID had been changed and I could no longer access my online account. Contacted Bank Of America fraud/security and got no response. The next day I was told by my rental authorities that June, July, and August rent payments had been disputed and Cash Net USA had been given the money to the scammers known as Cash Net USA. Two months later now, and hours and dozens of calls to different Bank Of America phone numbers the bank says they agreed with my dispute and put the rent money in either the local or corporate account. I contacted Cash Net USA, which is a legitimate but high-interest loan company, that they had no one working for them with the names I had been given let alone the fact they had no office at the Chicago, Ill. numbers I had been given. Filed a police report and went round and round with Bank Of America. The bank says the rent money has been paid but my local rental authorities can find no proof of that. I am still running in circles trying to find where my rent money has gone. Bank Of America gives me a different story for where or when my rent money is although my rental company cannot find any evidence of a deposit of the money. This is after almost a dozen phone numbers that some mysteriously do not work.
I was stupid for trusting this company especially after they paid off my credit card debt they seemed to be legit. A day later they somehow managed to take over my online account and be paid for three months of rent that had already been paid. Whenever I have had a dispute I had to wait for an investigation before I got any money. Has anyone run into this situation? I checked the other day and the phone numbers are still active and they continue to scam the crap out of you. They are not Cash Net USA but run a good line. I was desperate and really need this dental work done and they seemed to do everything right. Now I am out 3 months rent and Bank Of America gives me no help at all. If you have or have not been yet taken advantage of these scammers what can be done? And how does a little guy fight a giant like Bank Of America? My local rental people are being very good about it all but no one seems to know where the rental money is. Any suggestions beyond telling me I was stupid to be caught up in this scam would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Rudy.

Wow, what a horrible story. I have no real suggestions to what actions you can take to rectify your situation. That said.....the first thing I would do is change banks. Open a new account at a different local bank.

Then go get one of those prepaid refillable cards and move money on it to do your online shopping. This way if that card become compromised it's not directly attached to your bank.

Beyond going to law enforcement, which you already have done, and negotiating with the bank there's really nothing else we can suggest.
