Customer Question

I may have responded to an e-mail appearing to be from
my bank and possibly supplied online banking user/pass word
info. A substantial sum was removed from my money market account.
I am aware of Rule E. Bank notified within 48 hours. How
worried should I be? (not sleeping this week-end)

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If you kept the email to show bank security then any type of fraud or identity theft leading to you losing money from your account and timely reported, would be covered under Regulation E. In most all of these cases, the banks will refund the money taken from the account with the exception that your liability could be $50.
