Nearly fifty percent of Americans have been victims of credit card fraud in the past five years. The fallout from fraudulent charges can extend beyond the simple hassle of being placed on a “brief hold” when calling the card issuer into taking the time, creditworthiness, and sanity away from even the most sophisticated consumer. Fortunately, we have the tools to combat this, including the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA), Fair Credit Billing Act (FCBA), and Electronic Funds Transfer Act (EFTA). This webinar is geared to attorneys who already have a basic knowledge of the FCRA, FCBA and EFTA and want to better apply these statutes to credit card cases.

• How to help your clients challenge fraudulent or disputed charges the right way
• How to dispute these charges when they appear on credit reports
