NJ based Law Firm sued Bank
Sapiro Gottlieb & Kroll, a New Jersey-based law firm has filed a state lawsuit against TD Bank N.A. after it allegedly stole $200,000 from the firm’s attorney. According to the suit, a username and password were set up by the fraudsters that enabled them to snag $202,660 between July 6 and July 15, 2021. The firm’s partner, Lawrence Kroll, has noticed the anomalies while checking the account status online and not until then did the law firm have known what had happened.
The law firm has sought reimbursements however, they were left disappointed as the bank has rejected their request. This action has resulted in a pushback as Sapiro Gottlieb & Kroll claim that the incident is a breach of “contractual obligations”.
