Dear customer, in relation to your important matter, where your husband has been with withdrawing funds from your credit card without your permission, there may be a claim of theft, however, this will of course be subject to the facts. Where there is violence you may seek a family violence order to restrict his access, if this has not occurred already. There are legal options that you can consider, and each of these will be dependent on the particular circumstances. The most important point is that your are safe from harm, where no harassing, intimidating, or threatening conduct is occurring to your person. Where this is the case, you may seek immediate help from the local police in your area.

The law will come to your aid to protect you and secure your legal rights.

If you would like to discuss this matter further, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards
John Melis
