If someone refuses to return your property to you, then they are committing a theft. You can call the police. You could also hire an attorney to "politely" ask the person to return the property.

You should go to the bank directly and speak with the branch President and explain what happened and see if they can reverse the charges. If the number on your caller ID is a Synovus Bank number, they may be more inclined to investigate the matter and possibly reverse the charges.
