Columbus, OH asked in Consumer Law for Ohio

Q: What is the statue of limitations for a bank to sue a person in Columbus, Ohio?

I had a bank account with Huntington National Bank back in 2003. I helped a friend get a rental car so he could go see about his daughter that was in the hospital in New York. The rental payment and everything went fine with no problems. Two weeks later I was informed that my account was overdrawn because an extra week was deducted from my account for the rental car, which I never knew about nor authorized. When I contacted the rental place(dollar rental) I was informed that there was no file for me and that an employee got fired for forging signatures for extra weeks for rental cars and he took those files with him. I have no evidence of anything and was told by a employee of Huntington not to worry, he put in a dispute for the matter and I never heard anything else until 7/2/2020. The car rental happened in 2005. I’ve had a teller at Huntington check to see if I still had that account in the system and I was told no.

A: Is someone actually bringing a claim against you? It's unclear from the question. Determining the statute of limitations depends on what cause of action they're bringing.
