An Air Force servicemember seeks pro bono assistance with a consumer law matter involving a bank account. The Airman tried to close an account with this bank while she was overseas, but they would not let her do so over the phone, so she froze the account. The bank is now claiming the Airman owes several thousand dollars for cash advances and a personal loan that she did not take out and were made while she was overseas. She became aware of this debt once she returned stateside and has informed the bank that the debt is fraudulent, but the bank has denied these claims and demanded payment. She would like to dispute the debt and avoid making payments for these debts she is not responsible for. (#22788)
