FULTONDALE, AL (WBRC) -
Leo McGoogan, an 80-year-old man from Fultondale, and his wife watch their bank account very closely, every day in fact. But last week when Leo's wife checked it, she noticed a withdrawal of $29.95 by Zeal Money Solutions, a company they had never even heard of.
"She said, 'Well there's $29.95 taken out of the checking account and I said I absolutely know nothing about it," Leo. Online, the company's website says it prides itself on getting customers out of debt.
To Leo and his wife, they were stealing his hard earned cash.
They had never heard of the company nor had any contact with them.
They're still clueless as to how the company was able to get their checking account information.
When his wife called to get their money back, Leo said, "They just said if you want your money back, you've got to go through this website and file for it back."
That wasn't the answer Leo was looking for. He contacted the U.S. Attorney's Office and is now having to fill out paperwork from his bank.
"My money is hard to come by and for somebody to take it with no authorization. I can spend it real easy myself but for them to take money out of my account that I've worked hard for, it's a very serious proposition," said Leo.
The company has its share of red flags. There are thousands of complaints online across several other states, including Utah.
There, the state attorney general's office has even taken legal action to stop Zeal Money Solutions from withdrawing money from people's accounts.
