I wait to turn in the paperwork for the estate of my aunt. I have a joint account with her. BOA is new requesting a bank statement to verify the address. When I asked them why couldn't they just print a statement they said i had to bring one it to prove it. I have every thing else from the death... Read more »
The POA you have is no good because POAs cease to have any affect when the person who gave it dies. It looks like the bank is just trying to make sure that you are who you say you are. If you are an account owner yourself you should not need anything to withdraw the funds. Go down to a branch of...Read more »
Owners of bank accounts can designate beneficiaries by adding a "payable-on-death" (POD) designation. At the death of the account holder the POD beneficiary can claim the money directly from the bank without probate court proceedings. Similarly, owners of investment accounts can designate...Read more »
We planned to file joint taxes but a federal student loan she owes from 29 years ago is coming up. We just opened a joint checking 12/20/19. Can our joint account be frozen and money removed for her 29-year-old debit? And will our tax refund be applied to her debit if we file joint? We are in... Read more »
Let me just say this: If your wife still has an old student loan debt--from 29 years ago--the first thing she should do is thank the Good Lord for the government giving her the 29 years of low interest loans. The second thing she should do is stop trying to avoid paying the debt. Why? Because--if...Read more »
Talk to a stock broker, preferably in person. There is no shortage of them in your area. Assuming the certificates are valid, you probably want to open up a brokerage account and deposit those shares into that account. Then you can easily sell them, option them, collect dividends, exercise...Read more »
A year ago I applied for a Loan at Discover Bank and Agent stated if pay on time, and after a year I can lower APR, and supposedly no hidden fees. I made a payment and it didn't process correctly and they return the funds also the second time I made other small payments and it only went towards the... Read more »
In my professional opinion none of the facts stated by you could be the basis for any lawsuit based upon negligence. So I am afraid to tell you that the only way to get away from this bank is to repay the loan in full. (
HINT: As a former commercial bank operations officer I suggest that...Read more »

Frankly, I would be surprised to find an attorney who is interested in transactional work, who works on an hourly fee basis, who would not jump at the chance to take work on a contract by contract basis.

I used a credit card that is no longer active to make a purchase. Some time later I needed to return the item and contacted Amazon to see if I could have my refund routed to another car. They proposed to send the money (1.300.00) to a gift card.
I asked for them to guarantee it would not be... Read more »
Small Claims is a good option for a $1,300 claim. Or you could contact the credit card company to find out what it can do about the money that was refunded to your card that is "not active". Unclear what that means, by the way. Is it a card you don't use, or a card that you formally closed the...Read more »
I called my place of employment where I would have gotten my pension check from. I called Merryl Lynch also, the distributor of check and they had no record. This would have been in 1987. Please assist. I only know they said it was a check from Bank of America. Thank you.
Knowing banks and bankers as well as I do, I am sure there is a copy of this check somewhere--or perhaps the original cancelled check is buried beneath 100 tons of stuff kept in storage by the bankers--who keep everything forever.
So, yes, there might be a way to find a copy; however, the...Read more »
Bank fraud is NEVER "legal" even if it perpetrated by the spouse of the person injured by the fraudulent acts. Now before you come back and ask if the bank can be held liable for the fraud committed by a married customer, the answer is no. However, upon proper proof the bank could possibly be held...Read more »

You have already asked this question, and at least two lawyers have already responded. If you do not agree with the opinions of the two experienced lawyers then you should hire a probate lawyer to help you.
