Sadly, debit card fraud in Eastern Iowa and nationwide has increased since 2010. Scammers and hackers know that more and more people are watching their credit reports, making credit card fraud and identity theft more difficult to get away with. Because of this, there has been a shift from credit card fraud to debit card fraud.
Hackers have found out a way to steal debit cards, giving them access to people’s checking accounts and even savings accounts. This has left many people broke for weeks until their banks finish investigating their claims.
In the meantime, people have been left without a way to pay for their mortgages, car payments and other monthly bills. Attorneys know that in these situations you do not have money to pay up-front legal fees. There are lawyers who will take your case on a contingency fee basis, which means that you pay nothing until your case is won.
If you receive a recovery, then your attorney fees are paid at the end.
