National City Bank in Goodyear Heights, corner of Goodyear Boulevard and Newton Street is where my elderly father does the bulk of his banking. He has over $800,000.00 in various accounts there. During a recent investigation we have discovered two checks written for $50,000.00, one check for 30,000.00, and some sort of a debit for 45,000.00 all occuring from march 2005 to november 2005.....That is $175,000.00 missing in a nine month period that my father does not remember writing. We have a sister who we believe knows what has happened to this money. At one time she had a valid power of attorney for my father, but all powers of attornney were supposed to be closed at the order of the court. When Dave Robinson, branch manager was asked about the validity of the "supposed power of attorney"....he stated he did not know if it was valid since (he says) it was opened elsewhere. Seems to me that if $175.000.00 is unaccounted for and there is $800,00.00 more waiting to disappear that the manager would make it his business to find out what is happening. This same manager, Dave Robinson, told us that when he keyed my father's social security number in, that it showed as a valid number for my sister as well as my dad. We believe that something illegal is definitely going on and are getting nothing but the run around from these people.
We asked for and receivced copies of "account statements" that give you check numbers, amounts on the checks, and the dates the checks cleared but not to whom the checks were written to. We need to know who those checks were written to (seeing both sides) and who endorsed those checks. There are many many unanswered questions. They say the copies are in the mail, then what shows up is copie of the same "account statement" that we had before.
