Q: How can I get scammed money back? I was recently scammed out of 2500$ and my bank and the payment app are denying refund

I have filed a police report and contacted my bank same day. I provided screenshots and scammers information. Including the real company name and real employees names they were using.

A: In most of these cases, you need to sue the individuals and/or companies that perpetrated the scam on you. In many cases, it can be very difficult to identify the scammers as they are often not in the United States. That can also make it very difficult to serve them when they can be identified and may require the services of an attorney where the scammers live in order to collect any judgment.
