Have You Experienced Financial Losses Through Identity Theft Or Unauthorized Bank Transfers?
Discovering that you’ve been hacked and fraudulent transfers have been made out of your bank account can be more than distressing. It can be calamitous, threatening your personal or business financial stability. Essential business deals sometimes fail over fraudulent bank transfers. A victim of bank fraud can end up in serious legal trouble, possibly leading to criminal charges in worst-case scenarios. A dispute with a bank about fraudulent transfers can cause unnecessary stress and make you feel like you are fighting a battle that is impossible to win.
At SmithMarco, P.C., we are highly experienced consumer rights attorneys. We have devoted our entire careers to tackling difficult problems such as bank fraud, fraudulent bank transfers and theft through banking channels. In many cases, we have been able to recover 130% of fraudulently lost funds. We are available to evaluate your case and devise an aggressive plan of action to correct the wrongdoing and help you recover the resources that you lost if at all possible.
Turn To Us For Electronic Fund Banking Disputes Or If Your Account Was Hacked
Perhaps you were slated to receive an electronic fund transfer in your account, but the money has gone missing, and you suspect banking fraud is to blame. Perhaps you have a dispute with a bank and are struggling to get straight answers. We are ready to analyze the evidence and determine what went wrong and how to make it right.
Previous clients of our firm have turned to us after facing issues such as the following:
- Failed electronic funds transfers such as bill payment arrangements with their banks, debit card payments, transfers arranged by phone or in person, or ATM transactions that left their bank accounts or credit accounts missing large amounts of money.
- Unauthorized electronic funds transfers from their bank accounts that were possibly carried out by ex-spouses, business contacts or unknown hackers.
- Refusals by banks to replace missing funds from the consumers’ rightfully owned bank accounts.
- Getting stolen funds back after an account was hacked
Defrauded customers should not have to battle big banks to get missing funds refunded. When banks fail to prevent fraud from happening and then refuse to replace defrauded funds, consumers can be left with little place to turn.
What To Do If You Have A Dispute With A Bank
If you have a disagreement about funds that have disappeared from your account or a dispute with your bank about fraudulent charges, you should notify your bank in writing about the questionable transaction. It is important to include the date, the dollar amount and any identifying information about the charge that you dispute. The bank has ten days to respond to your request. If the bank fails to respond within a timely manner or if the bank determines that the charges were authorized charges and not fraudulent, SmithMarco, P.C., can fight on your behalf to get your money back. As consumer protection attorneys, we are passionate about protecting consumers from fraud and ensuring that big banks are not violating your rights as a consumer.
When Banks Fail To Prevent Fraud
We are skilled litigators who will not rest until we have done all that we can to set things right for clients who have experienced losses through fraudulent bank transactions. We will utilize ways to apply laws such as the Electronics Fund Transfer Act (EFTA) that have established remedies for bank fraud and fraudulent bank fraud transfers. We are prepared to take your case as far as it needs to go and involve government agencies in enforcing laws if appropriate.
