Your Personal Plan of Action for Fighting Back
OVERVIEW & PURPOSE
What steps to take if you get scammed checklist is exactly what you need if you get scammed. A simple and straight forward plan of action toward getting your money back. This list is an actual plan that has worked for me and many others. It is intended as a guide to give you a place to start the fight to possibly get your money back, before you spend any money on an attorney.
- My primary goal is to help you get your money back, period.
- The methods I use are free and most people DO get their money back.
PLAN OF ACTION
- Call your bank or credit card company and stop any payment if possible.
- Get all receipts and records organized in a timeline of events.
- Copy all contracts and statements describing what you were promised.
- File a police report. It is not mandatory, but recommended..
- You MUST Contact the Attorney General’s Office BEFORE you hire an attorney. They WILL NOT get involved if you already have an attorney.
- Contact the Attorney General’s Office in your state. Tell them what happened.
- Be patient, and wait. They WILL get back to you, do not call and hound them.
- Fill reports online to the FBI- IC3 unit and the FTC. Tell them who scammed you.
- Wait. You likely will not hear from the FBI, or FTC, but you will be alerting them of the person who scammed you, and they may file criminal charges.
- Only after the Attorney General’s Office has done all they can do, that you then decide if it is worth hiring your own attorney and pursuing a lawsuit.
