As it says in the subject. Back in mid-February I saw there had been three ACH withdrawals totaling just over $11k from our personal checking account (both my wife and I are on the account). The funds had been withdrawn via ACH to NFCU (Navy Federal Credit Union). Once I saw the withdrawals, I called Capital One to report it.
After getting transferred to the fraud department and filing a report, we were told to wait for their investigation (they also explained all the in’s and out’s of the investigation and the timeline to expect).
Fast forward to present day and we’ve been notified from Capital One that NFCU has documentation that this is a confirmed transaction (as in NFCU has documentation that we approved it, which we absolutely didn’t). In theory, Cap One will (is required to) send us the documentation - though we’ve yet to receive it. We’ve now filed a claim with the CFPB, although I don’t expect it to really help.
According to Cap One, all someone really needs to withdrawal funds is our routing number and account number (which is on our checks).
There’s lots of smart people on here... anyone know what other steps we can take to recoup these funds? I’m happy to share additional details/timelines as needed. We’ve discussed hiring a lawyer, but we just received the latest update today from Cap One - so are going through the options.
Thanks in advance!
