Debit fraud?

#1 Post by Stinky » Tue 17 Feb, 2009 1:39 am

Basicly somebody has being using my debit card to pay for their T-Mobile whatever for the last 5 months. Normally it was £80 a month except one which was £280. On the bank statment it says it's been payed through using a card transaction (not a direct debit), but there is no chance somebody has been helping themself to my card once a month to buy something. How would somebody do this I'm a little confused.
Anyway I phoned up T-mobile and they said they could not give me the number to which all this money is going to. Now I bet it's somebody in the block, all i'll need is the number and i'll beat the 600 and whatever pounds out of him, but seeing as I can't get the number, can anything be done to get the guy who stole the money? And most of all will I get my money back because the charges have been payed using my debit card?

This recently happened to a mate of mine and yes they did get all there money back, it took about a month I think, have a word with your bank.
Don't pull face's, it means nothing to me I can't feel a thing. You must drive forward.

What ever is happening it is theft, try your local police station, but go armed with your bank statements and any thing else that is revelant

Contact your bank first.
They will have a fraud specialist who will contact the police on your behalf.
This happened to my partner last year to the tune of £1500.Took about a month to get it sorted but overdraft charges were waived and a complete payback was made.
