PNP Bill Pay charged my bank account and I cannot find out who initiated it. I have called the city and county offices in my area and they do not use that service. How can I find out who charged me?

12/2018 This charge is not a scam, I found that it is property tax payment in my county. It is probably .50$ or a dollar higher than your bill since it includes processing charge.

I had forgotten about the small business personal property tax I paid and saw this charge from PNP Bill Payment on my account. Looked it up like many others and realized that was exactly what it was. It took a while to show up so that was what confused me because it posted as if I made the transaction last night!

Stormwater bill for my city. PNP did NOT disclose the fee (20%!!) anywhere on the utility statement nor on the website portal. Shame on PNP! I've removed myself from automatic payments. NO HIDDEN FEES!
