Please contact us if a bank or other financial institution or issuer of a prepaid debit card refuses to credit your account for third party fraudulent activity resulting in the loss of money from your account. We have recently observed that a number of major, supposedly reputable banks and issuers of prepaid debt cards refuse to honor legitimate customer claims that third parties fraudulently obtained funds, possibly hoping that the customers will simply accept the loss and not take legal action.
We handle such cases on a contingency, for the statutory attorney's fees awardable against the defendant under the Electronic Funds Transfer Act, Consumer Fraud Act, and other laws. The fact that the fraudsters obtained your account information through trickery does not necessarily disqualify you from recovery.
