Who would I have filed a complaint with? I was referred out of the bank and into Special Assets within 3 weeks! I didn't even know what was happening! He was terminated..not sure why...I have basically been told my local bank is out of the picture. He later asked my CPA if the bank was helping me! Not one representative from anywhere explained what the consequences of that advice would invoke! It seems to me they have some legal responsibility?
