Merrick Bank | Affidavit of Fraud and Forgery

Postby tuyenvo2395 » Thu Dec 29, 2016 2:25 am

Hello everyone.
My name is Andy. On November 28, I found two unauthorized transactions by checking my Merrick Bank online account, and I also opened the dispute case. As a result, they gave me the temporary credit for that situation.
However, I just received a letter about Affidavit of Fraud and Forgery form that they required me to fill out all information and send back to them as soon as possible for them to investigate.
DO I HAVE TO WORRY ANYTHING? DO YOU KNOW HOW LONG OF THEIR INVESTIGATION AFTER THEY RECEIVED MY LETTER BACK?
Because I don't want this situation affect my credit score.

Thank you so much for your help.

You can call the issuer and ask about the typical length of the investigation but it generally takes at least a few weeks from what I've read. The unauthorized charges will remain in dispute and won't affect your credit scores during the investigation, so at least that part shouldn't be a worry for you.
