What to Do When Discovering Unauthorized Bank Transfers
The second you discover an unauthorized bank transfer, or any other unauthorized bank transaction (such as being charged twice for the same purchase or having your online account hacked), you should contact your bank to notify them of the issue. In most cases, when you do so, the bank will reimburse you for any funds lost as a result of the unauthorized activity. If you believe that your account is at risk of further hacking or fraudulent activity, you may wish to freeze your account for the time being.
What to Know About the Electronic Funds Transfer Act
If you report fraudulent activity to the appropriate financial institution, such as your bank, which is regulated by the Electronic Funds Transfer Act, and your bank fails to provide you with the compensation to which you are entitled, you should strongly consider speaking with a California unauthorized bank transfers lawyer as soon as you can. If we can prove that the financial institution in question has violated the Electronic Funds Transfer Act, we may seek statutory damages and actual damages on your behalf. You should also note that, should we win your claim, attorney’s fees will also be covered as well.
