Jerold Smith is a single parent from Seattle. With his daughter going to kindergarten, a full-time job, and side gigs, you could say that he had a lot on his plate. Though Jerold was doing his best, still, the budget was tight. He was careful about every penny and he was constantly on the lookout for shop discounts.

In August he received a promotional email from a highly popular chain of stores, offering huge discounts if he were to participate in a survey. It didn’t occur to Jerold that he had never left his email on any of the store sites, or with any of the store personnel. Mr. Smith welcomed the chance to get store discounts, especially since his daughter was supposed to prepare for the first day of school.

He happily filled in the questionnaire and submitted it. Jerold was unaware at that time that he fell for a phishing scam. Unsuspectingly, he gave away all the relevant information that crooks could use to exact credit card fraud. Eventually, when Jerold went to the store he realized he didn’t get the promised discounts. Though he was disappointed he didn’t think much of the questionnaire, that is until his credit card statement arrived later that month.

To his great shock, Jerold discovered his credit card had been used for cryptocurrency purchases on several crypto-trading platforms. More than $3600 was taken from his account, and that made a huge dent in his budget. As he was searching for help online he discovered the Money Back Experts Step-by-Step Guide and thought that was the right thing for him, so he bought it.

He immediately got on top of it and he spent every spare moment reading it. Very soon he got the gist of what he had to do and he prepared for his case. He was a victim of credit card fraud and he wasn’t going to let it stay that way. Armed with complaint documents, and an understanding of the chargeback procedures he made claims for reimbursement from his bank.

After 6 weeks of going back and forth with his bank Jerold finally got his money back in its entirety and he even got 8% interest, which was a welcome cash infusion after the whole ordeal.
