I'm from the UK, I've been in Spain for few days and I've checked my bank statement recently, and I'm have the following transaction which I can't recognise:

4 Sep 2014  POS 0158 02SEP14 , KIRCHSTRASSE , 6####SCHA , . LI , EUR 23.54, VRATE 1.2507, FGN PUR FEE 1.00  -   19.82

Googling it points me to some Switzerland and German websites where I haven't been there for a while.

How I can check who (which company) charged me for the above transaction?

  • Since you've found out for yourself, try finding a better title for the question: it's wayy to specific as it is since "Kirchstrasse" is just the name of a street as part of an address. – Michael Borgwardt Sep 10 '14 at 13:01
  • I didn't find completely yet what's the company name. Actually bank said that the POS could be also on-line transaction. I think that specific title would help other people identify that kind of transaction by Googling it. – kenorb Sep 10 '14 at 13:09
  • The problem is that it's way too specific (to one store address rather than to a kind of transaction). – Michael Borgwardt Sep 10 '14 at 13:23
  • After investigation, I don't think it's too specific, as it was used by MultiCards global on-line cashier service. And that kind of statements only really confuse people and I believe the following Q&A will help people with their statement issues. – kenorb Sep 10 '14 at 13:30

POS stands for Point of Sale (like a specific store location) which indicates that the purchase occurred by using your debit card, but it can also be the on-line transaction done via 3-D Secure.

Checking with bank, they said that Kirchstrasse transaction could be related to direct marketing subscription service ordered on-line.

Investigating further what I've found these kind of transactions are performed by 2BuySafe company registered at Kirchstrasse in Liechtenstein with went through the MultiCards on-line cashier which can be used for paying different variety of services (e.g. in this case it was polish on-line storage service called Chomikuj).

These kind of transactions can be tracked by checking the e-mail (e.g. in gmail by the following query: after:2014/09/02 before:2014/09/02 Order).

Remember, that if you still don't recognise your transaction, you should call your bank.


I have found also some other people concerns about that kind of transactions who ask: Is 2BuySafe.com and www.multicards.com some sort of Scam?
