Oakdale, CT asked in Banking and Small Claims for Connecticut

Q: I got scammed and my bank has the person’s information who did it but cannot give it to me what can I do??

I got scammed for concert tickets. I sent the money through Zelle. My bank launched an investigation and it took them 2 weeks to find the person who did it. They told me they have the persons name but cannot give it to me without a subpoena. I tried to go to small claims but they said to even get to a judge I need the person’s name so I can get a subpoena. What can I do?

A: Why do you want the scammer's name? You should concentrate on getting the money back; and the bank and regulatory authorities are much better at doing that than you are.
