Card fraud - my legal options?
Hi, anyone knows what can I do if I’m the victim of credit fraud?
Are there any legal options available to solve this? Thanks in advance for your help!
What kind of fraud are you referring to? There are various possibilities, starting from your actual card to be stolen, to getting money stolen from your account and various other things happening.
I think the solutions depend on what exact type of fraud you are dealing with. But yea, safest way is to report immediately to your bank and ask for assistance.
I didn’t have a specific kind in my mind, I was just thinking in general what can I do if someone is trying one way or another to break into my account and steal my money. Yea, of course I guess the best idea is to contact the bank immediately but are there also ways to prevent frauds in advance? Right now I read something on this forum about credit monitoring which seems to be a service offered by banks to check the status of your accounts. This sounds very interesting, do you know if there are other options available too?
