Consumer Complaint: I had an invoked power of attorney over my father who was deemed XXXX early in XX/XX/2018. I made dozens of calls to NFCU overseeing his accounts to prevent any more fraud and theft from occurring. I had a valid POA in place and the very person who had abused him financially was then allowed to take over his financial through a fraudulent document and phone calls by manipulating the system/him and calling in saying he wanted my valid POA to be revoked and to place her in control. They went with the criminal activity all along, which in essence is aiding and abetting crime. He was XXXX by two medical doctors, in a locked XXXX unit, and had no ability to make XXXX XXXX. NAVY FEDERAL should have protected his accounts by not allowing the theft to occur as I gave them all evidence prior, during and after the fact. I have continued to fight to get this money back that was stolen from my father and that NEVER should have been, had Navy Federal done their job. There is no way his financial documents should have been taken over and diverted, period. There is no question as to the FRAUD that took place. He was XXXX! My power of attorney was invoked to protect him. They not only did not protect him but have given me the runaround for the past 7 months trying to dispute this. Credit Union NAVY FEDERAL CREDIT UNION Desired Resolution They need to take responsibility for allowing a XXXX XXXX adult who was in a locked XXXX to be the victim of upwards of {$20000.00} in theft by a known perpetrator. They need to refund his account as they ALLOWED the theft to occur. They did not do their background check and erroneously took part in this crime and argue that he should be held responsible.
While this is not technically Identity theft per se, it is similar, as the person who stole form the account holder impersonated herself as some one who should be given the POWER of Attorney under false pretenses. She knowingly and willingly knew she was not to touch any of his financial accounts. She had just been deemed to have exploited him in a state investigation for elder abuse. This was all conveyed to the NAVY FEDERAL credit union, along with phone numbers and documented paperwork. She in no way had any notarized power of attorney, had not revoked mine and no authority to take over his funds and steal from him. The fact that NFCU is in my opinion a crime, as I worked tirelessly to protect him and what they did is not only help the perpetrator but force me to get an emergency court injunction, adding thousands of dollars in legal fees.
