Can any legal action be taken against Regions "J.P. Morgan and Chase Bank" for emotional damages as well as a violation of privacy for leaked personal information?
I ask mainly about the emotional damages because of the fact it left my mother and I with going to my grand mother and great aunt for some money to be given to us for us to be able to last the 14 business days it would take to receive the check.
The lady who is at our local branch also was extremely hostile and verbally abussive, I am high functioning autistic (mentally disabled) and sometimes I can take things too sensitively, however even my own mother felt she was way out of line, especially when she threatened to call security on me for simply asking her to show me one of the things causing us to leave the ties with the bank.
I am sorry that I don’t have better news, but please understand that I do have an ethical and professional obligation to provide customers with legally correct answers, even when an answer is not favorable to the customer.
