Consumer Complaint: Please refer to prior Case Submission XXXX. I received from XXXX XXXX Office of the President of 5th Third Bank and have contacted and left several messages on her office phone XXXX to address such issues. I was paid monies that were owed to me I believe on stolen bank accounts that was addressed in my prior correspondences. I indicated that aka XXXX XXXX is the individual who had the contacts at your bank to put a bank account onto my XXXX Credit card and paid monies from that bank account onto my XXXX CARD to pay down my credit card bill that monies were owed to me for services rendered on a marketing campaign. I was not involved in knowing who the parties were etc only that monies were paid out for services and payment was supposed to be paid back to me via my credit card. XXXX XXXX acted in concert with XXXX XXXX who has a XXXX XXXX fraud case with the CFTC and monies were probably used to pay his legal bills. The only accounts that I knew what was entered into XXXX as a transaction number. This was a well fueled scam that both defrauded the banking system in addition to myself. Mr. XXXX deals with cryptocurrency and he used his knowledge in the banking world to perpetrate this heinous crime.
I called several times to go over this with Ms. XXXX and as of today still has not returned any phone calls … The number of gave her was my cell phone XXXX or one of my office lines XXXX.
Since the bank security was violated I would not be out my monies if they were not able to violate the bank information that recycled this scam. If the public was to understand this type of crime that the banks are allowing insiders to gain access to individuals accounts this would ruin the banking system …. I want the monies that were rightfully owed to me and for the banks to police their internal policies better to protect people like myself
