So, are you saying that there was a third co-trustee who took money out of the trust?
I see you want to chat on the phone. I will send you the additional service offer.
Then who is the person that took the money out of the trust?
This sounds like you may need court intervention. Have you considered it?
When someone takes money out of a trust without authorization, or there is evidence of withdrawal, a co-trustee or beneficiary can demand an accounting of the trust. So, you would write a formal letter to your Brother requesting him to account for his actions. If he does not do so, then you would petition the court for an accounting.
An ideal formal letter would be from an attorney, demanding and account of the moneys and demanding that distribution be made pursuant to the terms of the trust. If however, you do it yourself, you would want to send it certified, return receipt requested.
Sorry. We do not offer professional opinions from this site. You need to hire an attorney for a professional opinion. The bank would not be responsible for the wrongdoing of a trustee. The statute of limitations would not expire as long as the trustee remains as trustee because it is an ongoing duty.
