By Philip Gonzales | Sep 20, 2018

WILLIAMSON — A Mingo County depositor is suing banking corporations and a caretaker, alleging fraud and conspiracy that cost the plaintiff more than $120,000.

Daisy Aveline Steele, individually, and by and through her power of attorney, her niece Romona Baker, filed a complaint in Mingo Circuit Court against Branch Banking and Trust Company, Community Trust Bank Inc. and Barbara Hill Gooslin, alleging they intentionally conspired to convert the plaintiff's deposit funds for their own use and control.

According to the complaint, as a result of the defendants' fraudulent actions, Steele has been financially damaged in an amount totaling more than $120,000. 

The plaintiff alleges Gooslin negligently and fraudulently forged Steele's signature and cashed the checks and that Community Trust Bank and Branch Banking and Trust failed to check the plaintiff's signature on file.

Steele seeks trial by jury, actual, compensatory and punitive damages, with interest, attorney fees, court costs and all other necessary relief. She is represented by attorney Justin J. Marcum of Marcum Law Office PLLC in Williamson.
