I am new this this forum so I hope some of you experienced veterans can help me out. I signed up with Langhorne debt solutions today and was told that I should inform my bank as soon as possible to stop all ACH transactions on my account and change my account numbers. Has anyone ever done this before? If so how did it work out for you?

Thanks in advance




Is this in order to stop PDL's from drafting??

Ah ok.

Couple of things...

What state are you in? i ask this to ensure that closing your account (resulting in the ACH drafts being returned) would not yield prosecution.

Also, are you looking to close the account and reopen a new one? OR just stop individual drafts?

Yeah, read the sticky about closing your bank account. There is infomation about the different holds and blocks that banks can do to stop the ach's from going through. Stop payments on individual transactions won't work.

I am in Maryland.

I want to either close my account or see if my bank can issue me new account numbers.

I think that you should consider going to a totally different bank to open up a new account. It would be too easy for a new account to be tapped into accidently by clerical error at your old bank.

Call me paranoid but I would go to a totally different bank:)

Lady is correct. We do reccommend opening an account at a completely unrelated bank. It is much safer. Go to any lenghths you have to to protect your money.

Just pleae make sure you read the info Goudah mentioned about closing your account...make sure you talk to the bank and make them understand you want nothing to go through or re open the account...the last thing you want are nsf charges on an account you are trying to close.
