hire a lawyer. I had charges thru my checking account where someone used my debit card. I contacted the bank & they resolved it for me. And I did get my money back. Good Luck! The credit card shouldn't be suing you unless the problem has been let go a long time. The first thing you should have done was dispute the charge with the credit card company. Then you should have filed a police report either in the jurisdiction where the card was used or in your own jurisdiction, given your state's identity theft laws. You should forward that police report to your credit card company/bank and to the company with whom the purchase was made. You should also file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commision at 877-ID THEFT or with the FBI at the internet Fraud Complaint Center at At this late date, though, you should probably consult an attorney.
