Using online Yellow Pages I've been able to locate several California
based Hanson Managements though only one seems to be an LLC.
Superpages, whose website can be found at:
Hanson Management CO
Po Box 4019, Palm Desert, CA 92261
They are listed in the Category for Swimming Pools Service & Repair,
so maybe you bought a difficult to find pool filter element or repair
Switchboard also lists that business, plus:
Hanson Investment Management Co.
4000 Civic Center Dr San Rafael, CA 94903-4171
This seems a little more probable for an interstate transaction.
Switchboard's website is:
A similar search omitting the State found six other Hanson Managements
nationwide, one of which may be the one you are looking for. Clicking
on "research this business" took me to KnowX 's site. This is a pay
for information site at:
It lists a Hanson Asset Management LLC located in California., as well
as a Hanson Management Corporation which seems to have branches in
both Massachusetts and California. More details can be obtained from
KnowX from $3.95. But possibly you requested investment advice in your
home state, which was billed through a central office. Neither seem to
have a website.
A search through Geektools Whois proxy at:
shows the domain name hansonmanagement.com is registered to a Curt
Grim of Pennsylvania, but the website is under construction.
Finally, typing hanson.com into the browser takes you to the website
of Hanson & Company, also located in California.

So maybe you made a donation to some good cause and it was processed
Remember that many small businesses maintain one merchant account to
cover two business names. We once received a charge to a hotel in
Modena which we had never visited, which related to a genuine purchase
in a souvenir shop in Siena. It took us quite a while to sort it out,
and then only because the sum of money was naggingly familiar and we
had kept our receipts.
I hope this is useful. As probonopublico-ga points out, if the charge
has been made in error or fraudulently you should be able to get it
Search strategy as outlined above.
Searches under "Hanson Management" in Google and other search engines
found mainly a UK investment house, Jeff Hanson the Florida band
manager and references to the band called Hanson.
