Darcus Ann Phillips and Larry Columbus Phillips II v. Village Bank and Trust Financial Corp. and Rajini Patel, individually
Plaintiff says Darcus Ann opened an account with $60 at Village Bank on Sept. 18, 2018, and over $125,000 was moved through this account with two incoming and two outgoing wires over the next 30 days. Larry Phillips, son of and a beneficiary of Darcus Ann, says he has a valid power of attorney that defendants ignored after he specifically warned them to stop fraudulent transfers, which were purportedly for the purpose of enabling Darcus Ann to pay recurring ransom demands for someone named “Billy,” an individual she met on online dating website eHarmony, and now needed to free from his captors in El Salvador. Plaintiff alleges defendants at the bank at 4221 W. Hundred Road, which Patel oversaw, ignored obvious warning signs of fraud and elder abuse, and facilitated the scam, and violated their own policies as well as federal and state regulations regarding wire fraud. Plaintiffs seek a refund of $123,000 and punitive damages of $369,000.
