Damaged by card theft

By From page A5 | April 08, 2013


I’ll try to make this short even though it’s a lot of information. A fradulant charge was made on our debit card on March 9 to Walmart in the sum of $475.23. The Bank of America knew of this on the same day because they canceled my wife’s card. Walmart canceled the order. Bank of America replaced the money in my account
 and all was well.

Then BofA took the money out of my account again, and charged me because my account was overdrawn.
 Then Walmart in their wisdom, after telling me it was all taken care of, shipped the item to the person who stole from them, or me; I’m not sure which because they can’t tell me who stole my money, because of some privacy act.

Bank of America says that we have to go through some long drawn out process, before we have to jump through an unknown number of hoops that we were told we had already done. Back to square one. I’m not one who wants revenge. But there must be some kind of justice in this world, and I am mad to say the least. Is there a lawyer who could help me bring these people to justice? I don’t understand how BofA and Walmart can take the criminal’s side and tell the victim to go pound sand down a rat hole? Maybe I should pursue this with the attorney general of the State of California?
