This request should be made as soon as possible and explain why CPLR 1012 is relevant to...View More
In May 2022, I invested $8M in a U.S. Treasury note, due in April 2024. I instructed my ETRADE manager to liquidate $5.6M for property buying. Unexpectedly, ETRADE initiated a $5.6M margin loan, leaving part of my investment intact. I discovered this during a routine review, not through direct... View More

Your question may have gone unnoticed under this heading. That's probably why it remains open. Some questions go unanswered, but you could try reposting under "Banking." Attorneys who are familiar with banking laws and operations would have the best insight into this. But as a...View More
The section you refer to (I am assuming 15 USC 1662, which does not have a subparagraph "B") deals with advertisements for the extension of consumer credit. It prohibits such an ad from stating that a specified down payment is required *unless* that creditor usually and customarily...View More
You need to contact the bank’s legal department through an attorney to determine the nature of the alleged violation, and to file an appeal with the bank’s internal compliance department. There are usually strict deadlines to follow and you may be prevented from filing a lawsuit if you have not...View More

"Illegal" presumes criminality. If the account was a joint account, it was not illegal. But you need to start a divorce action right away. You can ask the court to have him pay some of the money back. You can also get child support or spousal support. See a local matrimonial attorney right away.
The bank said only the executor of the estate can get it. Aren’t beneficiary accounts outside the realm of the estate and the executor? My sister lived in Arizona when she passed. I live in NY.

Questions about Estate matters are controlled by the law of the State where the decedent resided at the time of death. Therefore, although you may live in New York, your question is better directed to attorneys practicing in the State of your late sister's residence.
The bank is saying we're short in escrow $400 but also trying to raise our monthly payment by $8.78 saying we can't pay the entire shortage to remain at the same payment we have. We'd rather pay the $500 we're actually short to remain at the same payment but they're saying we cannot do this.
I would need to review with you the documents on your account dashboard for the reason for the hold. Depending on what my investigation uncovers we may issue a legal demand letter to the Stripe legal department.

The facts aren't fully clear here, but this sounds like it might involve a repossession action. Your question remains open for five weeks - you could try reposting and adding Banking & Collections as categories. There's no guarantee of a response - most attorneys would ask to see...View More
It's probably best not to. An attorney who works in banking could probably give you detailed reasons not to, but anything fake or false like that in terms of credentials, ID, etc. is best to avoid. Good luck
