Lawsuit against two US banks and $10k leak from Wells Fargo

A couple from North Carolina has filed a lawsuit against Wells Fargo and Truist, alleging that thousands of dollars have disappeared from their accounts without any explanation.

According to court documents, Kevin Kohl and Taylor Goodnough have accused the banks of violating the Electronic Funds Transfer Act and engaging in unfair and deceptive trade practices and breach of contract.

The incident dates back to 2022 when Goodnough made an attempt to transfer $10,000 from their joint account in Wells Fargo to their joint account in Truist.

On the same day, Truist sent an email to Goodnough stating that the transfer was successful. However, when Goodnough checked her account, she found that the balance was zero.

Upon realizing that there was an issue with their funds, the woman immediately visited a local Truist branch to inquire about the problem.

The bank informed her that the transfer had been flagged as potentially fraudulent due to the large amount of money transferred as an initial deposit, and the funds had been sent back to Wells Fargo.

Upon reaching out to Wells Fargo, the couple was told that the funds were with Truist.

The banks continued to shift responsibility onto one another, causing the couple to become fed up and seek assistance from local law enforcement.

The police referred them to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), but the couple claims they never received any communication from the FBI.

The couple eventually made formal complaints to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) regarding their funds.

However, as of October, they had not received any indication that their funds would be returned. This prompted the couple to take legal action to resolve the matter.
