Was looking online at my statements and saw this interesting entry: USD 36.04 ST-SAFE2COLLECT.COMat 0.7240* in the description of a charge totalling $50 (rounded to the nearest dollar)... not sure where this came from (no its not porn, dont do that nonsense) Anyone seen or heard of it?

It's discussed here http://phoneowner.info/Number.aspx/4420313990/10

Sure you haven't entered your CC somewhere on the net? You will need to contact your credit card company to dispute it, as it could be a scam.

Contact the bank, it looks dodgy.

lots of unauthorized withdrawals.

I am not sure about your one, but some companies use payment gateways that display the gateway name instead of the company that you purchased the item / service from. However in your case it looks like it is dodgy as there are so many complaints about it. I recall reading in consumer that a printing company advertising in NZ, but operating out of asia, got in trouble for charging a regular cusomter fee, after you had purchased some printing from them, which you had to 'opt out of' . There are a lot of dodgy companies out there.

I remember once going and purchasing a washing machine and dryer from Betta Electrical using EFTPOS. My bank statement came up with a purchase from an electricity supplier. I went and checked it out and it was OK but had a minor panic at the time.

If you have had a shipment of KoolAid from, say, the US by someone - it may be a back charge for the import duty.

It is, after all in USD.

Psssst! Want any more KoolAid sent to your door?

It's the bank trying to claw back their part of the $2Bil they have to give back to the IRD..
