Scam Description

My husband had two $80 electronic withdrawals from his personal bank account today from varomoney. After further looking into this and talking with our bank, these transactions were taken out through his debit card. I attempted to call the 1-877 number our bank gave us that was attached to the transactions and it would not let me talk with anyone without putting my husband social security number in first. I would not do this so I found an email address: support@varomoney.com and received immediate reply that stated the email I reached out with was not associated with a Varo account and that I needed to reach back out from the email connected to the Varo account. We do NOT have an account with Varo. The email further states if we need to update our email to again, call the 1-877 number that wants a social security number FIRST. I called our personal bank back and they said this definitely sounds like fraud and shut my husbands debit card down. He will be signing dispute paperwork tomorrow to further take action against these transactions and hopefully receive some resolve. This company is a FRAUD!
