The "Everything Else" category in Budget lists extra unwanted expenses that never happened, and won't show me where its getting that bad data, its making Mint unusable.

Per the Title Mint is becoming unusable because budgets are listing additional expenses in "Everything Else" that never actually happened, and I have confirmed this with the bank and been told by them that I should stop using Mint "because mint is clearly not showing my account data correctly or may be showing me somebody else's data by mistake".

I go to budget, look down at items, view "Everything else" and it lists expense categories that have not spent ANY money in the past 7 days as having been spent this month.  I HAVE MANUALLY VERIFIED THIS USING MINT, AND ALSO MANUALLY VERIFIED THIS WITH THE BANK. When I search on mint is shows me NO TRANSACTIONS TO SUPPORT ITS CLAIMS THAT I SPENT MONEY. 

Nothing I do can show me what transactions its referencing.  The bank says they never happened and I shouldn't worry; But I am because Mint is saying I spent thousands of dollars I never did and its messing up allot my budgeting efforts and making mint unusable, as well as stressing me out to tears and ruining my weekend.,

Nothing I do changes this amount it says I spent, and if I  add an additional budget for the category (In this case, "Taxes")  it just says that category is over budget, but will not allow me to see what did so. I have tried clicking the link on the page to see the transactions, and it shows me NOTHING.  I then went back to transitions and looked at all the items in that category. No items returned because I never spent any money on that category. I then went and looked at EVERY SINGLE Transaction in my history for the past month and a half and NOTHING is listed as being tax related so what I am seeing is IMPOSSIBLE unless I am being shown somebody elses data or Mint is broken.

I am a computer programmer by trade so please don't tell me to clear my browser cache etc as I tried that a dozen times and van reproduce this issue in Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer.

I have tried to contact customer service but they are not getting back to me.

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
