Corner Bank and Trust would never do that. The big boys think they can get away with anything. I think that I would write a letter to your bank manager stating your case and the preferred resolution. I would give him a time period to resolve the matter. In the letter, I would state that if it is not solved to your satisfaction by this date you will be following up with: President of Chase Bank Your State’s Attorney General Your State Senator Your State Representative Your US Senator (both) Your US Representative Small Business Administration Fraud hotline Your State Banking Administration The President of the company he claimed lost your deposit The FBI Chamber of Commerce Etc, etc, etc. Let him be sorry that he ever messed with you and spend the next month on the phone answering inquiries. And I would apologize if he’s offended ! That’s what the radical Irish side of me would do. Make lots of noise.
