Hi-I think my debit card has been scammed. I think it originated from a Just Eat survey I was asked to complete. They had my card details already and the website had the padlock sign (I am so careful with websites). I woke up to a total of £770 being taken from my account - some online gambling originating in France. What are my chances of getting the money back from my bank? Surely they should have flagged these rogue ones up as they have been blocking genuine payments from me only last week. I am panicking here
My bank flagged up that there were four unauthorised payments on my account. They are still pending atm and I have to wait until the fraudsters take the payment before `i can dispute them. My worry is that I will not get my money back even though this is clearly fraudulent. Am not even sure it was that website but it just seems too coincidental
Thanks Ben. So I should just be upfront with the bank when I get the forms back. I took all relevant (so I thought) checks and have been genuinely scammed but have googled it and it doesn't seem I will if I knowingly entered my number even if I did it totally innocently and the website looked so genuine. My bank is Barclays. You think the chances are good of getting money back even though what happened is I described. Clearly they had my card details etc the only thing is I did enter them onto the fraud website didn't I - so would not that be classed as negligent?
Hmmm - have had conflicting advice online. Can you confirm that other people have had their money back from being scammed the way I have please? Many thanks - just panicking here :(
I have been on a forum and also Barclays bank website which says if I am a victim of internet scam then I am highly unlikely to get the money back. It also says the same on Which.com
As I have put my card (partly) in then they say I am liable. I cannot see how as I did not authorise the payments essentially. But Im sure the bank will try and wriggle out of paying if they can. Have any other similar cases like mine been paid out?
But in general, where people have given their details over, do people still get money back. I mean its not as if I transferred an amount over to someone willingly or knowingly. I just am so worried. Have you come across people who have been scammed with a false page getting money back?
As the premise is the same on these rogue pages - it seemed genuine and gave me no reason to think it was a scam. It had the padlock sign and everything
