We currently keep both electronic copies and paper copies of every change made on our website. This is time-consuming to maintain. How critical is it to keep hard copies of our work, and what questions should we be asking ourselves to potentially reduce or eliminate unnecessary paper trails?
We were recently told that the way we process Reg E claims (and have been since before I was here and never had an audit issue besides wording of a letter) is backwards. Here are the few scenarios that will tell me which is right. It's September 2019: 1. If a customer comes in and says they haven’t balanced their statement for 5 years and just realized that $14.99 has been being debited from their account by Amazon since March 2016. Can you tell me what amounts or for what time periods they are owed and for which months/years? 2. If the same scenario happened but the first charge was on April 10th of this year? Can you tell me what they are owed and for which months? 3. Last, if the customer comes in and says that he is balancing his statements for the past two years and found several different charges that are fraud: a. A cable bill that debited for two months after he revoked authorization in 2018. b. Amazon Prime debited monthly for 12 months from June 2018 to May 2019 and he never agreed to it. c. GEICO debited his account $113.00 when he hadn’t authorized it to debit his account for that payment in August 2019.
How would I complete a CTR for an estate? The Trust Dept. opened deceased customer's safe deposit box and found $75,000 in cash. Funds were then deposited into a trust fund. I know the trust employee will be the transactor but how do we handle the "on behalf of"? Do we just put customer's name even though he is deceased? There's no where to put "The Estate of ..."
What are your thoughts on a sole proprietor using a personal joint account for business transactions? Merchant deposits and payments are going in and out of the account (less than 15 transactions a month). We have insisted that our customer open a business account for his sole proprietorship. Is it wrong for us to require it?
This is about an advertisement that offers a bonus to a customer and one of the conditions to be met in order to qualify for the bonus is having a set number of debit transactions posted to the customer's account within a specific period of time. When disclosing this qualification in the ad for the customer, should it be specified as "posted and cleared to your account" to be more clear and conspicuous or is the language "posted to your account" sufficient? Does Reg DD indicate the need to specify the term "cleared or completed" when referring to posted?
