CHARLESTON -- A man is suing W&R Corporation after he claims an unknown employee made multiple unauthorized transactions on his debit card.

On April 10, William O. Jordan went to the defendant's St. Albans location and entrusted his Visa card to an unknown employee, according to a complaint filed July 9 in Kanawha Circuit Court.

Jordan claims the unknown employee requested his PIN number for the purpose of establishing a credit for services to be rendered up to the amount of $500.

The unknown employee placed $2,020.50 in charges on Jordan's Visa card in five separate transactions of which four of them were unauthorized, according to the suit.

Jordan claims the four unauthorized transactions occurred after the initial $500 transaction at 1:02 a.m.

A charge for $505 was done at 1:14 a.m., a charge for $305 was done at 1:23 a.m., a charge for $505 was done at 1:37 a.m. and a charge for $205.50 was done at 2:17 a.m., according to the suit.

Jordan is seeking judgment in the amount of $2,020.50. He is being represented by Walton S. Shepherd III.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Charles King.
