LOCKED OUT My bank closed my new account after I deposited a check – they refused to return my $10k for a year until I got help

The Sun

A PARALEGAL found his newly opened bank account suddenly closed and frozen, with no clue how to recover the funds.

After being told the money was tied up in a fraud investigation, one move finally pointed him in the right direction.

Leonard Rollock Jr. works as a paralegal paid by the US Treasury Department.

After a paycheck worth over $10,000 was flagged for fraud, he worked for a year to try to get his money back, reported local ABC affiliate WABC.

The Treasury Department said the check was cashed and had been missing since March 7, 2023.

 "Oh, they tried to tell me that the money was tied up in a fraud investigation," he told WABC. "And that would take... they couldn't tell me how much time that would take."
