“My bank account went from very comfortable to negative balance, not to mention extra $5 charges, and overdraft fees,” wrote one user. “As a result my rent check bounced, and my bank went further into negative for a [non-sufficient funds] charge for $25. My landlord is not a nice person and is on my CASE and I have nothing to offer him. I am FREAKING OUT.“

“We can confirm that the unexpected charges are originating from our payment processing network, and are related to charges from previous purchases. To the best of our knowledge, these unexpected charges are not permanent and are in the process of being refunded. We are running joint investigations with all parties involved, and will provide updates as we receive them.”
