Would some one, please tell me what does it mean -it is the charge on my checking account by Amazon:
"AmazonCredit AMZC Epay xxxxx8742" $102.23
The only thing I have on Amazon is my own book "Odyssey of a DP" in soft cover and Kindle, nothing else, like purchases and/or sales.
Thanks,
Vladimir

The money was deducted? That shouldn't be! I would challenge it at your bank.

I have never seen such a line. There is a service called Amazon Payments. Have you ever bought anything that way?

Hi, it may be an auto-deduction to pay your Amazon Credit Card if you have one.

Amazon Payments is a service that allows merchants to sell their products on their site using the Amazon checkout service. It does not support questions about the Amazon Credit Card or Store Card.

Hopefully you've resolve this since it's been a year, but I definitely recommend contacting your bank, getting a phone number for where the deduction came from, and also checking if your Amazon Credit Card bill was recently due.

Change your bank account number ASAP!!!!. I have been getting the same charges on my checking account. I have also been receiving emails from order-update@amazon.com informing me that an order placed for a book has been cancelled. I called both Amazon.com and Chase Bank who provide the Amazon Credit Card. There is no record of these transactions with either Amazon or Chase Bank. I notified my bank about these charges and they informed me that Amazon Credit WEB AMZC Epay is acting like a web based credit bureau or credit card company and is deducting the money straight out of my bank account. They are not using my debit card at all. So far I have lost more than $1000.00 from this scam. I dont even know who to report this kind of crime to yet but I am working on it.

Personally, if you have already checked with amazon, the credit card and your bank, I would contact the police. There is some kind of fraud going on here. They will point you in the correct direction and send the complaint to the relevant peole, even if they cannot help you directly.
I'm assuming you have contacted amazon about this and they haven't helped? If not, I'd contact them and state you want the matter investigated. Also contact your bank and block any new payments from going out your account.

I did file a complaint with IC3 which is an organization that investigates internet crime. Police cannot do anything because crime was not committed in my town. IC3 involves FBI and others. I will persue whoever did this until justice is done.

Hello vladrob,

If you haven't already, please be sure to contact Amazon's Customer Service about this charge:
