    Believe me, I fought this tooth and nail for 2 weeks.

    I went all the way up to the executive corp. office.  And still they flat out denied me.

    They simply.don't.care.

    They're a big bank and they think they can get away with it- but they've got another thing coming.

      I've had this sort of thing happen twice, and like you, when it was just me calling and complaining to the bank, they refused to budge.

      But each time, when they heard footsteps coming at them from some other direction (letters from my friend who is, yes, a lawyer who did it pro-bono) I got my money.

      But other posters are right; you don't really need a lawyer, not yet anyway. Try things like comsumer protection agency etc. listed in the replies.

      Good luck.

        My step-kids are coming in 3 days and now what I had planned for them is ruined.

        My husband and I are newlyweds.  We had JUST FINALLY get settled to where we had a little money to enjoy with the kids. (They live in Europe and we don't get to see them much).

        If you only knew what all we've been through in the last 11 months!  That money isn't a lot to Chase but was to us.

        It pisses me off to no end.

        I do see your point though, and thanks for caring. I'm just kind of venting here.

          ...for me to be telling you or anybody else to relax, I'd probably have had papers served on me by now if I'd lost $4k. Venting's good.

          Congrats and good luck on the new marriage thing.

          •  yeah. Until it happens to you (1+ / 0-)

            you just can't fully imagine how you feel.

            Waking up on a relaxing Sunday, check the account online and find out it's empty!

            It's one of those things you think will never happen to YOU.  It happens to someone else.

            Then you're in for surprise #2 when you THINK you're covered but the bank decides otherwise.

            I feel like I've been robbed TWICE- once by the thieves and again by the bank.

            Pissed off doesn't even begin to describe how I feel right now.
