ID Theft

Suzanne Begnoche helps victims clean up the aftermath of identity theft, unauthorized credit card use, and other financial fraud.  In some cases, legal claims for money damages may be available against financial criminals, as well as against businesses and credit bureaus that break consumer protection laws in dealing with financial fraud victims.

Some people ask for our help after they learn of security breaches by businesses they trusted with their financial information.  In those cases, Suzanne Begnoche helps these consumers avoid an identity theft outcome.  State and federal laws allow victims of some types of security breaches by some types of businesses to make legal claims for compensation.

If you are the victim of identity theft, unauthorized use of a credit card, or a privacy or security breach, call our office at 919.960.6108 to set up a free initial consultation.  Fees and costs vary depending on the nature of your case.  In some (but not all!) cases, if the right types of legal claims are available, you won’t pay any attorney’s fees unless we win money for you. (You may be responsible for other costs in your lawsuit).

In order to represent you in a case of identity theft, unauthorized use of a credit card, or other financial fraud, our office requires that you also report the incident to law enforcement and participate in the investigation and prosecution of the person who committed the crime.
