Was Your Debit Card Stolen? Here’s What You Need to Do.
If your debit card was stolen, the first thing you should do is notify your bank. You have two business days from the date you realized your card was stolen to do so. Importantly, it’s not two days since your card was actually stolen, but two days from the date you realized your card was stolen.
Upon noticing unauthorized ATM charges on your statement not involving an ATM card, you need to report the fraud to your bank within 60 calendar days from the date you discovered the charges.
Once you report the fraud to your bank, they’re required to reimburse you in full for all funds taken without your consent. Unfortunately, banks are businesses, and often care more about their bottom line than they do about your financial well-being, and because of this, it’s not uncommon for banks to dispute allegations of fraud. If this has happened to you, you need to speak with a skilled unauthorized ATM charges lawyer who can help fight for the best outcome possible on your behalf.
