My son was scramed on the computer by allowing access to his computer to uninstall a program .The company was going out of business , so they offered a refund . there was a glitch on the computer and they supposedly credit 30,000.00. my son was told to wire the money back or he would be in trouble. So it was taken from my equity then transfed to my checking and then to my sons checking and then it was wired to a overseas account and bank stated to me they are not allow to question a customer.As there has not been any activite on my equity,why wasn't it questioned.
Who authorized the transfers?
Banks don't transfer money without someone telling them to do so.
Assuming it was your son there are several possibilities:
- You didn't log off from a banking session allowing him to access it. Legally, you authorized the transfers.
- You stored your sign-in credentials on the computer allowing your son to access them. Legally, you authorized the transfers.
- You gave your son your sign in credentials. Legally, you authorized the transfers.
- Your son hacked your account. Your son has committed fraud. Your contract with your bank may protect you from this, however, the bank will pursue your son for recovery and will likely refer the matter to the police.
