Watch out for MSP scam

If you think MSP on your bank statement stands for Medical Services Plan you might want to check where the money is going.

If you think MSP on your bank statement stands for Medical Services Plan you might want to check where the money is going.

My bank informed me that anyone who has a direct debit on your account can use the letters MSP alone, along with the amount, no other information required. When alerted to this I asked the bank what the MSP charge is that has been on my account for some time. Without hesitation they informed me it was from a gym, not Medical Services Plan. Bank records show I joined this gym in July, 2012 and canceled Sept., 2012. The gym however did not cancel but continued it as an MSP deduction, $1,100 has been siphoned out of my account so please check your bank statement especially if you have been a gym member. If you want to cancel your membership go to your bank and cancel the debit.
