Default Transaction on my current account from "who internet internet" Who are they???

My bank cant tell me any further details until tomorrow but im pulling my hair out for who this company is?

They took out 2 separate transactions on 2 days. One for 10 and the other for 20.

Im thinking maybe a betting site but not sure.

I registered with bet32 a while back but didnt authorise any funds to be transferred.

Anyone got any clue who they might be????

Your bank will tell who they are as they will get the Originators reference, this will then tell you who it is,

It was with debit card.

Turns out it was William hill so well done and thanks to the guys who identified this.

It actually standard for William hill online but the rep couldn't understand why it came through as who internet internet as opposed to just william hill as per other transactions

So its all good.

Cheers

William hill have just changed their originator name, so they use WHO Internet now I believe.

WHO Internet refers to William Hill Online, it replaces the one you, and I, were familiar with.....it caused me some anxiety too when I didn't identify transactions.

Yes, we've known that for the last 2 1/2 months, so I'm not sure why you've bothered to join just to post that? Unless of course it's a prelude to a deluge of spam from you.

You must agree however that it looks suspicous. Signing up to make a single post on an old thread and then disappearing. Even if they only read the first post and hit replied, surely they understood it was from way back in August?

Everyone signs up to make a single post. Maybe the first of many once they into it,once they have worked out the system, maybe a new format to them. That's why they have a badge.
It was only yesterday, pgtv hasn't had the time to disappear.
Thank me if you want for putting you right.

So it's your view that the poster is legit despite posting an answer that had already been given on an old thread? I would be suspicious of anyone who did that, whether they are a newbie or not, and as most spam comes from people who have just signed up I don't think it's unreasonable to make a connection. You haven't put anybody right yet, only time will tell who is right so let's wait and see what happens.

Innocent until proved guilty and all that.
Not everyone is a Stephen Fry.
I remember once helping out at a library computer session for adults with learning difficulties.
Probably by accident, one of the class found himself exchanging views with a lady gardener from Tennessee.She picked up his circumstances and the tears in his eyes when he realised what he had achieved. Bloody well done. Like making First Contact.

I disagree. Previous posts stated that this stands for "William Hill ONLINE" - the new poster suggests "William Hill ORGANISATION" so he/she is adding new information.
