Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, this is Jim and welcome to JustAnswer.
I am one of the legal experts on the site and I am a dual-qualified solicitor (UK & Republic of Ireland)
Thank you for the question, I am reviewing the details now and I will aim to resolve it as quickly as possible for you.
Sorry to hear of the issue.
Without further delay, you should report this to your bank and ask them (today if possible) whether they can charge back the funds. It may be possible if the funds are still in the recipient's bank account.
Next, as you have been a victim of online fraud, you should contact the Police - there is a specific division for online fraud and you should go to this site to report it : https://www.actionfraud.police.uk
As for contact details for the recipient bank, they have an online form which is to be found here: Click Here
If your bank is unable to recover the funds, you may need a law firm to step in - one which specialises in online fraud. There are a few around and I can send you details if required but do try your own bank first to see if they can recover the funds.
I hope this helps
It was a pleasure to assist you today and I hope this answers the question.
