While going through your account statements, several direct debits called “GARIP LDEF” caught your attention. What exactly is a scam? What company is behind this transaction? We explain to you what this garip ldef levy from Lyonnaise des Eaux Suez is about, and how to put an end to it.
What does it correspond to?
Have you noticed one or more questionable debits on your account in the name of « GARIP LDEF »? Note that this transaction was carried out by SPB Assurance, which is linked to your subscription to La Lyonnaise des Eaux.
Indeed, when subscribing to the water distribution company, a contract with SPB insurance is offered to you. This contains a direct debit authorization to be completed and returned. However, it would seem that subscribers to Lyonnaise des Eaux are registered without their knowledge for an optional and paying insurance service. Their account is therefore debited each month without their having given their consent.
