I have a legal question regarding fraud on my credit card

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

MInnesota

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

I caught the fraud in 12/16 and BOA did remove the charges from my account. Then I went back and found the fraud had started in 2014. My wife pays the account and we use the account for business so there are alot of charges and the fraud charges slipped through. I contacted BOA and they said if it's fraud they could go back to 2012 to remove charges

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

They initially removed the charges and then BOA made the decision to disallow and put the charges back on my account

Welcome to JA and thank you for your question. I will be the Attorney that will be assisting you.

BOA is notorious for these issues. Have you filed any consumer protection complaints yet?

"but you recommend filing Consumer Protection complaints with MN State AG office ?"

Not just the AG, however, I would include the AG at https://www.ag.state.mn.us/office/complaint.asp

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau https://www.consumerfinance.gov/

FTC https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/GettingStarted?NextQID=251&Url=%23%26panel1-8#crnt

If you can tell me where in Minnesota I can provide a link for local consumer protection Attorneys that provide FREE consultations in your area.
