Someone got into my checking account at USAA Federal Bank…

Customer Question
Someone got into my...

Someone got into my checking account at USAA Federal Bank and removed approximately $2500 illegally, then when my social security check was deposited into my account USAA charged it against my account, leaving me with no funds for Mortgage or Living needs. they are treating me like I'm the criminal and I'm not. I'm 100% Military disabled and on a very strict budget. If I don't get money back soon, USAA will ruin my credit, cause me to be late on my mortgage and won't allow me to pay my bills. Forget about eating.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

This has nothing to do with Real Estate. it is fraud and robbery

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I have talked to USAA at length since Christmas But no one else

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

USAA said they would issue me credits until the fraud matter was resolved, but then yesterday reneged . I have have ab e-mail saying they would issue these credits, Also they have never given me any written reason why they are doing this Steve Quady ***@******.***

What was the reason they removed the fraud credits, did they claim they discovered it was not fraud? Please explain?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
