Good evening! I can help you out with your legal question tonight. I'm sorry to hear about your fiance's wire. Chase can refuse legally to work with anyone based upon any reason that is not protected constitutionally. So she is at the mercy of Chase unfortunately so long as they don't refuse her service because of her race, color, religion or sex.
She should transfer the money to another account with a new bank and pay the bills from that account.
Even if she were to sue Chase for discrimination, it would take longer than switching accounts.
Yes but they advised her that she might not
Might not what exactly?
Move her account?
Are you still there?
You typed that she might not, but I need clarification on what that means.
BizAttorney: I tried to complete the sentence my I-Pad left hanging. What I was saying is that in their letter Chase implied that she would have a difficult time opening a new account anywhere because of them reducing her credit rating. Like you recommended she intends to open an account in another bank today to test the water.
My question for you is there a way to contact the Feds who exercise the regulations she got caught up in? I would like to enter into dialogue with the Feds in an attempt to right this unjustified wrong. Thank you again.
