Unauthorized ATM Charges Lawyer | Serving Los Angeles & Southern California
Unfortunately, most of us have lost at least one credit or debit card in our lives.

If this has happened to you, we’re here to help you get your money back. Give our California consumer lawyer a call today so we can start working on your case.
What Should I Do if I Can’t Find My Debit Card?
The first thing you should understand is that you will have two business days from the date you realized you lost your bank card to contact your bank and inform them of the situation. An important distinction to make here: it’s two business days from the date you discovered your card is missing, NOT two business days from the date your card actually went missing.
Upon discovering unauthorized ATM charges on your bank statement, however, (that don’t involve an ATM card) you’’ have 60 calendar (not business) days to notify the bank. That said, of course, you should contact your bank as soon as you possibly can. Once you do, your bank should reimburse all unauthorized withdrawals. Note that in some cases, banks will dispute the fraud and will insist on not reimbursing you. In this case, you’ll need to hire an unauthorized ATM charges lawyer who can help you fight for the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled.
