|Forged Checks - Unauthorized Withdrawals from Checking Accounts|
In January 2011, while reconciling my elderly mother's checking account statement, I discovered that her bank had processed a check dated December 14, 2010, in the amount of $33.00, but nopayee was listed.The check number did not correspond with any of her checks, and we could not recall writing a check in that amount.I inquired at the bank, which printed out a copy of a check, with her name, address, and account numbers, written to "Advanced Document Institute" and typed in the signature line, "authorization on file." We have never authorized "Advance Document Institute" to create and write checks in my mother's name. The bank is now processing our complaint.
Upon further investigation, I discovered that this company has engaged in similar practices with a number of other elderly victims. Reports can be found on the following website: .From reviewing the Better Business Bureau file as well as the Complaints Board website, it appears that this company also operates under the following names: Advanced Documenting Institute, ADI, Global Reporting Network, GRN, G R N, Prize Reporting Center of America, and United Reporting Alliance.
