My deceased, mentally challenged sister had a savings account with Capital Bank, bought by Union Planters Bank, bought by Regions Bank. Her account was active in the late 1970's when she was working at a sheltered workshop making $0.50/hr. The savings account represented one years earnings for her and was important to her.

After her death, the passbook was found and Regions Bank was notified of the account number, dates, amount, etc. No record existed of the account at Regions Bank and no statements were ever received in the mail. Regions Bank said inactive accounts were turned over to the state after a period of time depending on the state. I double checked with the state unclaimed property and they confirmed the account was never turned over to them as it should have been by law.

Regions Bank has not responded to my request asking where did the money go. Theft is the illegal taking of another person's property without that person's freely-given consent. What is Regions Bank hiding? Where did the money go?

    My daughter was defrauded by U.S. Buildings of Deerfield FL. This company sells metal buildings, and uses lies, subterfuge and outright fraud to obtain credit card deposits. They send an "invoice" that states in small print that it is a CONTRACT. Then when they get a signature and a CC number, they charge a non-refundable "deposit" for "blueprints". Bait and switch is a specialty of USB. In fact, they appear to have worked very diligently to develop many ways to "outwit and outplay" consumers in order to end up with thousands of dollars in deposits, without sending any product.

    If you know anyone who has been defrauded by U.S. BUILDINGS in Deerfield FL, have them file a complaint at: www.IC3.gov. This complaint site is sponsored by the FBI and the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C). You can also file a complaint with the FTC (Fed. Trade Commission). They have websites that will inform you of your rights. You can also contact Evie Wilson at [email protected] to get on a consumer list of USB scammed people.

    My daughter's credit card was issued by Regions Bank. When she filed a dispute with them for the $6884 U.S.Buildings fraudulently charged, her dispute was denied. Banks appear to cater to business, rather than to the "little" guy.
