Unauthorized Transfer

The illegal transfer of funds without permission from the person or company who owns the funds. Unauthorized transfers can be fairly basic; for example, one may steal and use a debit card. Often, however, unauthorized transfers involve using computer programs to find a person's financial information and conduct large transactions with that person's money. The person who owns the funds is responsible for the loss of the first $50 if he/she informs the bank within 60 days. Otherwise, he/she is responsible for the first $500. See also: Identity theft.
