Cash App unauthorized transfers through someone else’s debit card are not possible. As before linking the debit card to the Cash App account, Cash App takes you through a verification process where you need to fill in your complete and real information and provide documents as well. The main thing is Cash App does not allow you to link someone else’s debit card to your account. For instance, if your name is XYZ then you can only link the debit card with the name XYZ and not with ABC. So, someone else can't use your debit card on their cash app to make payments.But, your card details can be used for other unlawful activities.

You can even know the place to some extent but there is still no technological advancement that can show who has used your debit card on Cash App fraudulently.

The use of a stolen debit card on the Cash App is not as simple as it seems to be because the cash app always notifies you about any payment or transaction.
