The Office de la protection du consommateur cannot help you if your debit card (ABM card or bank card) is the subject of fraud.

Potential solutions in cases of fraud

In cases of fraud with your debit card, you can:

  • contact your financial institution and your police service;
  • check your contract for the use of the card. You are sure to find relevant information.

Have your contacts with your financial institution not yielded results? Have you lost money? You can turn to your financial institution’s complaints processing system.

If you do business with a bank and your complaint was not processed to your satisfaction, you can file a complaint with the Ombudsman for Banking Services and Investments. If you do business with Desjardins, the Desjardins Group Ombudsman can help you.
