ED Magedson – Founder
Wells Fargo15760 Ventura Blvd Encino, California United States of America
I have a safety deposit box at Wells Fargo where I kept over $100k. On Thursday 10/28/10 I went to access my box only to find out that it was empty. No one else had signed my sign in sheet which leaves me to believe that this is an inside job.
About a month and a half prior on 9/11/10 I had new keys made for my box because the box was getting hard to open. I find this too big of a coincidence. I heard from a few people that safe deposit box in particular are easy to duplicate.
Everyone else in the bank has access to the other key required to open the box, and there are no cameras in the vault (which i find unbelievable!!).
When I found out my money was missing I was obviously upset. Three members of the bank came over to talk me through it. It has only been a week and two of the three that were there have already transfered to other branches. Also the representative helping me with the new keys was unavailable because she's been on a leap of absence for who knows how long.
It has been a week now, and I haven't found an attorney willing to take on this case. I am devastated right that my life savings that I worked so hard for has been stolen, and I'm not sure exactly what to do. I have already filed a police report. Any advice anyone has would be appreciated.
