Q: Insurance agent took my bank information/ took money out of my account/Do I have a legal suit?

Agent only applied some of down payment to ins. payment when I added another car. I notified Primary insurance company and they have opened an investigation and asked me to send documentation. Agent told me that I could not give debit card info and she needed banking route# and acct # to set up monthly draft but after speaking to primary insurance company I was told that I had restrictions on my acct and that the system would not allow banking info that she requested for draft until Nov 2023.

A: A Georgia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It might be necessary to coordinate between the carrier and bank personnel to eventually reconcile the figures. It's difficult to comment on reason for partial payment without looking at the records in detail or asking the agent. Good luck
