Credit Card Fraud Complaints

Credit Service & Credit Card Offers and Loan Offers

  • Don't deposit a check which you have received unexpectedly. You will be held responsible if it bounces. It is illegal for telemarketers to charge any advance fees even if they claim that they can help you to secure a loan.

  • If you don't have a good credit history or if you are yet to have a credit record, it is unlikely that anyone will lend you money, except at very high interest rate.

  • If you aren't qualified to get a loan, find a co-signatory.

  • It is not advisable that you pay to an agency to get yourself a credit card, neither does it guarantee that you will get one nor increases that possibility.

  • It is against the law to charge for a credit card which you are yet to receive. If any agency says that you are qualified but they need your social security number to provide you with that, it's a fraud.

  • Any credit repair agency is required, by the federal law, to give you a written explanation of your legal rights, the contract in details and three days to cancel if it is a for-profit service. This is not applicable on banks and credit unions, the creditors themselves or the non-profit organizations.

  • Free credit reports are not really as free as a free beer so it is advisable to contact the credit rating bureaus directly, like TransUnion, Experian or Equifax and request them for your credit history. By law, you can get one free annual credit report by going to www.annualcreditreport.com Anything you find false, challenge it immediately.

How to Stop Credit Card Fraud

  • If you have been defrauded or you fear so, raise you voice and register credit card fraud complaints with the competent authorities.

  • Be proactive and know about the different con schemes going on around. Protection against credit card fraud is always better than lodging a complaint afterwards.

  • Knowledge is power. Learn how to prevent credit card theft so you can secure own and other close ones’ credit cards.

  • Nobody can issue you a credit card if you have not applied for that. If you receive such a call, be alert. This is a scam and immediately lodge credit card processing complaints at the local authorities.
