I received a Security emal alert from Bank of America back in August stating that fraudulent activity was noticed on my account and that my account had been closed. I contacted the bank and was informed that ATM deposits that were being conducted in Texas (I live in Michigan) were fraudulent. I... Read more »
There are several ways to rectify this increasingly common situation--all of which require assistance of an experienced lawyer who understands Banking Law and class action litigation. I advise you to use the Find A Lawyer tab at the top of the page and contact an experienced Banking Lawyer.
Okay, so I noticed one day when I went into my mobile online banking my account said negative $574.00, so I immediately went up to the bank and was addressed the issue and their response was "You deposited a fraud check" when in reality I did not. Also, the bank let the check go through without... Read more »
Yes, of course your sister can open a bank account--with one important caveat: If your sister intends to put lots of money into a bank account--or in any other kind of financial account--she may be at risk of having to explain where she is getting the money.
The custodian will not give me access, I am wondering if there is another way I can get the bank to give me the money from the account without having to go through the custodian. I am now 30, I've had the account ever since I was minor. Is there a way as an adult now that I can bypass the custodian... Read more »
The bank is required to give you the money; or it can give the money to the person who set it up. The reason the bank said no might be because the custodian closed the account--years ago. They will not tell you because they cannot. If there was a lot of money, hire a lawyer.
After transferring funds from my Wells Fargo account to chase, they suspended account with $6,000 in it on 3/22/19. They did not reach out about receding any information from me until 4/15. Then finally sent check for funds 5/7. Also I was not notified by any other methods, such as hone or email... Read more »
Accept the $500 settlement and move on. P.S. By move on I mean move completely away from both Wells Fargo Bank and Chase Bank, unless you like this kind of bad behavior from your bank. Choose a small local bank of credit union that is grateful for your business--and does not engage in questionable...Read more »
Manager-Managed LLC in Michigan. I am the Manager (80%), my daughters are silent partners (5% and 5%). We are presently using a UPS Store Mailbox as the business address, but the bank will not allow it. The bank suggests using my personal address.
You present an interesting take on an age-old dilemma. While the loan manager may be held accountable to the bank or dealership for approving a bad loan (in this case, allegedly losing her job), you are and will be accountable for everything you sign as an adult - including this loan agreement....Read more »
Husband died. Had no income. Came and got motorhome. Live in Michigan. I have never received letter saying they were suing me. I am afraid to start a account because I'm afraid they will take it. Thank you for your help.
Quite possibly. I don't know what you mean by the creditor "discharging" the loan. That's probably not the proper term. If the creditor "wrote off" the debt, it is no longer carried as an asset on its books, but the act of writing it off (which also goes by other names) does not extinguish the...Read more »
If you report your son to police, he could be charged with illegal use of a financial transaction device, which is a felony. Because he used the card online, he could also be charged with using the internet or a computer to commit a crime, which in this case would be a felony because the...Read more »

Not quite enough information to answer your questions. You need to ask the bank very specifically about the details of the debt. If your daughter is an adult she needs to contact the bank also. Whose money was taken? Hers or yours. What kind of debt did you have with this bank in your prior case?...Read more »
I was caught in a modeling check scam. I’m not being charged over $23,000 on a $6,000 mistake. I was young and naive then. Not anymore. I know it won’t be dropped but id like to fight it where I pay back the original amount. I declared bankruptcy and now 5 years later the bank comes after me... Read more »
If your wages are being garnished I assume there is a judgment against you. Fighting a judgment is difficult because you are not permitted to challenge the merits of the underlying lawsuit. It's too late. There are some procedural defenses like lack of service and fraud. But most creditor...Read more »
Not necessarily. The decision to proceed with the case is up to the prosecutor, not the judge, and their decision is influenced by numerous factors, only one of which is the willingness of their "victim" to testify. Without knowing more about the facts of the case, I could not say what the...Read more »

I tried on several occasions to make payment arrangements but the refused. They could not garnish my paycheck because years ago i chose... Read more »
Probably. I would need some additional information to accurately answer your question. I am assuming your husband had a repayment agreement with the creditor or debt collector after a judgment was entered in court. Most of the time, creditors will honor that payment plan and not take any...Read more »
Assuming that your sister had no legal authority to do so, she committed a crime. Most anything you can do - short of confronting her and convincing her to make it right with you - will likely involve her getting into legal trouble. As you are the beneficiary of that account, it's up to you as to...Read more »

I suggest you get a copy of all your bank transactions from one week prior to the incident to one week after the incident. Then contact a consumer lawyer in your area and provide him/her with a detailed summary of events and a copy of the bank transactions. Essentially, more information is needed...Read more »
Yes, you are obligated if in fact you agreed to repay. Assuming that the contract was performable within a yesr, the oral contract obligation to pay back the loan is enforceable under Michigan law because it is not in the category of contracts that must be in writing to be enforcable.
