Then XX/XX/XXXX I received my XXXX XXXX pay in my checking acct ( XXXX ) which {$400.00} was taken from that to pay a debt I was never notified of per banking regulations. When this happened I called the bank and they refused to entertain why the money was taken and refused to refund it. I drove 3 hours to the nearest bank the morning before I put my XXXX DAughter in XXXX XXXX for XXXX XXXX after having a XXXX XXXX over the bank and their discrepancies. I went into the bank on XX/XX/XXXX where they refused to remove me from account and demanded payment even after seeing my daughter in a XXXX XXXX unable to make XXXX XXXX.

All of this has been explained to XXXX XXXX yet they want to make me the sane person responsible for a debt I had no knowledge of until they took my XXXX XXXX and then setup payment arrangement in order to refund my {$400.00}.
