We received a call from a customer's child asking for information about a safe deposit box in name of our customer who is now deceased. This person
was listed on signature card but never signed it. Should we give him any information regarding the closing of the box?
When placing a large deposit hold on an amount that exceeds $5,000, are we required to place a case by case hold on the first $5,000?

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 ..."

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

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.

We have a business organized as a trust that is opening an checking account for a bingo unit. There is only one person named in the Trust Agreement. His
name is Mike. Mike is named as a trustee/designated agent in the Trust Agreement. He is wanting to add his bookkeeper, Kim, to be an agent on the
account. Is this allowed for trust accounts, or are only people designated in the Trust Agreement allowed to be on the account? Also, the Trust
Agreement is not signed or notarized, which raised some questions for our New Accounts Rep. Does the Trust Agreement need to be signed and/or
