      I have a friend who had this happen with her house payment- she had

      the company taking the money, instead of the bank sending it-

      someone in there messed up and took out 2 payments instead of 1.

      Well, that put her almost $500 in the hole before bounce fees. She

      ended up getting the money back, but was out the check fees and

      bounced checks, which totalled almost another $500.

      and it caused $286 worth of insufficient funds charges on our

      account. Boy that shot us in the foot like I can’t even describe.

      I called the company and they basically said too bad, then I called

      the bank and since I had done a “check of the phone” instead of my

      debit card there was nothing they could do either……we were out

      all of that money for NOTHING!! Oh I wanted to just cry. We

      actually had to sell one of our vehicles (68 VX Bug) tp cover it and

      still be able to pay our bills (we have no savings right now). But

      thank God we had that car and it did sell.
