If your bank account, identity, and personal data are being used fraudulently, it's critical to act immediately to protect yourself. First, contact your bank to report the unauthorized use of your account and personal information. Request that they freeze or secure your account to prevent...View More
I asked them to close it and was told it would be closed the next day but the card is still being reloaded and used. I never received a card the whole time I was employed there and I did not authorize them to open a card in my name after my employment.
If your former employer opened a prepaid debit card in your name without your authorization, this could be a serious issue, potentially involving identity theft or fraud. First, contact the company that issued the prepaid card and inform them that the account was opened without your consent....View More

For $700, maybe. A data breach like that only gives rise to liability if someone else uses that data to harm you economically in some fashion, for instance by getting and using a credit card in your name.
If I were you, I would research what Life Lock or some similar credit and identity...View More
If you are a victim of theft and harassment, you can report the incidents to your local law enforcement agency. You may also want to consider changing your passwords and enabling two-factor authentication on your accounts to help protect them. Additionally, you can seek the assistance of a lawyer...View More
You very well may have a claim for this data breach which could result in compensation to you. A complaint would likely need to be filed against the retailer in order to make sure the flaw in their software is fixed. You should contact a lawyer in Georgia as soon as possible to explore this matter...View More
A Georgia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Your post is very brief and it could be difficult for someone to figure out what kind of attorney you're looking for. You could try reposting (don't include personal information - this is a public forum),...View More
This depends on several factors. However, contacting the prosecutor's office and letting them know that you don't want her to be charged is a first step. You can request to fill out a non-prosecution affidavit, but ultimately it is up to the prosecution to determine if they will dismiss...View More
It will be up to the discretion of a judge if they permit bond. However, your alleged crime is not one that poses substantial risk of physical harm to others, so it is likely they would let you bond out, unless you have prior charges other than identity theft.
A friend of mine had a text from Zelle (aka Synovus Bank) regarding a suspicious transaction. They asked personal questions, in which he answered. Within 6 minutes they transfered over $7,000! He disputed it with the bank in which there turned down. He also reported it to the police with the name... View More
You should go to the bank directly and speak with the branch President and explain what happened and see if they can reverse the charges. If the number on your caller ID is a Synovus Bank number, they may be more inclined to investigate the matter and possibly reverse the charges.
If I have a bank account in my name and my ex is a sub person on the account but her checks are direct deposited to my account and I close the account due to her hacking in and changing all of my information on my bank account where I could no longer get into my account. As well as my emails and... View More
It would depend greatly on what you mean by “hacking in” to determine whether you have a cause of action. If she is/was also an authorized account user, she would be/is legally permitted to make changes to the account. However, if she has defrauded you or misappropriated/stolen funds, you may...View More
I couldnt find my puppies when they got loose but i can hear them whining at my neighbors,and everytime i call for them its like they take them inside,and they have pitbulls so i dont know what to do,what can i do about them keeping my puppies? Or if they dont give them back?
Have you called the police? If you have and they classified it as a civil matter, you will need to sue your neighbors for taking your property. It is best to contact an attorney as soon as possible for the safety and well-being of your puppies.
We are certainly glad to assist you. Contact...View More
Yes. Why? Because you are the only person who has (or had) the $901.70. Surely you do not expect any bank on this planet to eat money just because you accepted a fraudulent check? No; they are making you eat your own money.
Typically, people only use one name. If someone is using two names to be deceptive or commit fraud, then that would not be proper. If you are concerned she is doing something to damage your name and credit speak with an attorney. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
Debt collectors are still harassing me via phone and letter over a cell phone bill that belonged to my mother. The company that issued the collection claims the account was in my name, however I was just an added line on to my mothers account. I also was a minor when my phone plan was added on to... View More
from the sound of your email you have a very solid case. You need a lawyer to represent you. You should not pay anything. You have claims for invasion of privacy and likely, the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act. Search the internet or contact my office if you'd like.
Possibly so, but the circumstances of the event will determine that. For example, if the person claimed being an attorney to convince you to send him/her money to settle a lawsuit or claim, that would likely be something a Prosecutor would want to pursue. Having a recording of the exact statements...View More
