Understanding Digital Signature Fraud

Avvo MikeDigital signature fraud occurs when someone uses your electronic signature without your consent to sign documents or conduct transactions in your name.

This can include forging your signature on contracts, loan documents, or other legal agreements. Perpetrators may gain access to your electronic signature through hacking, phishing scams, or insider access to company databases.

Signs that you may be a victim of digital signature fraud include:

Receiving Unexpected Bills or Payment Demands for Unfamiliar Transactions

One of the most alarming signs of digital signature fraud is receiving unexpected bills or payment demands for unfamiliar transactions. If you start receiving invoices, statements, or payment requests for purchases, services, or agreements you never authorized, it is a strong indication that your digital signature has been used fraudulently.

These unexpected financial obligations can be a significant source of stress and confusion, as creditors may try to hold you responsible for transactions you did not make. Investigate these unfamiliar bills promptly and contact the companies involved to report the fraudulent activity and dispute any unauthorized charges.

Being Contacted About Contracts or Agreements You Never Signed

Multi-Million Dollar Advocates ForumAnother red flag for digital signature fraud is being contacted about contracts or agreements you never signed. If you receive calls, emails, or letters regarding legal agreements, business deals, or other contracts that you did not authorize or sign, someone may have used your digital signature without your consent. This can cause additional distress when the fraudulent agreements have significant financial or legal implications.

Inform the contracting parties that you did not sign the documents in question and that your digital signature has been used fraudulently. You should also request copies of the unauthorized contracts and begin the process of disputing their validity.

Noticing Unauthorized Changes to Your Business or Personal Accounts

Digital signature fraud can also manifest as unauthorized changes to your business or personal accounts. If you notice unexplained modifications to your account information, such as changes to your contact details, financial information, or login credentials, someone may have used your digital. The perpetrator may want to gain further control over your accounts or to redirect important communications and transactions.

If you detect any suspicious changes to your accounts, contact the relevant institutions immediately to report the fraud and restore your account security.

Discovering Unfamiliar Legal Documents or Contracts in Your Name

American Top 100 High Stake Litigators 2018Discovering unfamiliar legal documents or contracts in your name is another alarming sign of digital signature fraud. If you come across legal agreements, such as leases, loans, or business contracts, that bear your digital signature but you have no recollection of signing, someone may have used your signature fraudulently. These unauthorized documents can have serious legal and financial consequences, binding you to obligations you never agreed to.

If you find unfamiliar legal documents in your name, report the fraud and begin the process of nullifying the agreements.

Receiving Debt Collection Calls or Legal Action for Transactions You Did Not Authorize

Receiving debt collection calls or legal action for transactions you did not authorize is a distressing consequence of digital signature fraud.

If you start receiving calls from debt collectors or legal notices regarding unpaid balances or breached contracts related to transactions you never made, someone may have used your digital signature to commit fraud. These collection efforts and legal actions can be highly stressful and damaging to your credit and reputation.

Inform the debt collectors or legal representatives that you are a victim of digital signature fraud and that the transactions in question were not authorized by you.

You should also request documentation of the alleged debts or legal claims and begin the process of disputing them with the help of a qualified consumer protection attorney.

Steps to Take After Discovering Digital Signature Fraud

National Association of Consumer AdvocatesDiscovering digital signature fraud can shock and unsettle you, but act quickly and decisively to minimize the damage and protect your identity and financial well-being.

Here are the steps you should take after discovering digital signature fraud:

Contact Companies and Institutions Involved

One of the first steps you should take after discovering digital signature fraud is to contact the companies or institutions involved in the fraudulent transactions immediately.

Report the issue and dispute any unauthorized agreements. This will help prevent further misuse of your digital signature and limit the potential financial damage.

File a Police Report

Filing a police report is the next step when dealing with digital signature fraud. This official record of the crime can support your case when disputing fraudulent transactions or agreements with companies and financial institutions. Obtain a copy of the police report for your records.

Notify Your Bank and Credit Card Companies

Inform your bank and credit card companies of the digital signature fraud and request that they monitor your accounts for suspicious activity. This will help detect any additional fraudulent transactions that may occur and prevent further financial losses. Your bank and credit card companies may also be able to provide assistance in disputing unauthorized charges or transactions.

Review Your Credit Report

Obtain a copy of your credit report from all three credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion). Review it carefully for any unfamiliar accounts or transactions.

If you find evidence of fraudulent activity, place a fraud alert or credit freeze on your credit report. A fraud alert notifies potential creditors that they must take extra steps to verify your identity before granting credit in your name, while a credit freeze prevents new accounts from being opened altogether.

Update Your Passwords and Security Questions

Change your passwords and security questions for all online accounts, particularly those related to your electronic signature. Use strong, unique passwords for each account and enable two-factor authentication when available. This can help prevent the perpetrator from gaining further access to your accounts and committing additional fraudulent activities.

Document All Communication

Maintain detailed records of all communication with companies, financial institutions, and law enforcement regarding the digital signature fraud. This includes keeping copies of emails, letters, and notes from phone conversations.

A well-organized paper trail can be valuable when resolving the situation and seeking legal recourse.
