If you use a vending machine that takes credit cards this is what it shows up as on your statement. You don't have to be in Howell either, I use one in Livonia, MI

I live in Ohio and my bank - KeyBank flagged this with Fraud... this was the first approved charge, then it moved to a few stores after. Please call you bank to have them keep an eye out on your accounts

This charge is for swiping your credit/debit card at a soda pop vending machine for your purchase. It is legit.

I believe the card is being tried to see if it's a good card then used elsewhere. My bank notified me of the fraudulent charge and cancelled the card. I have not lost my card, so the scammers are finding creative ways to get card numbers. Get a real job if you're that smart!

I have 100% found out this is NOT a real charge. It shows as a vending machine charge, I have NEVER used a charge card in a vending machine. I finally had a BofA customer service rep look and tell me if your institute looks past the first page above, they see the charge is out of Venezuela. While the BofA card was being replaced for fraud, my back up card from my CU was used at only 5 places and this charge started showing up on it. Just from these 2 cards it is $1.50 X 20. Multiply that and people that think this is a real charge, $$$$.
