ACH Fraud Sparks Another Suit

Linda McGlasson reports:

In another round of bank vs. customer, a Maine business has sued its bank, alleging that the institution failed to prevent fraudulent ACH transactions totaling more than $500,000.

Patco, a Sanford, Maine-based construction company, had its corporate bank account raided over a six-day period last May by cyber thieves who were able to move over $588,000 to dozens of money mules throughout the country.

The business was able to recover only $230,000 of the stolen funds and has sued its bank, Ocean Bank of Portsmouth, NH, for failing to detect and prevent the bogus transfers.
