WHEELING – A Morgantown woman is suing WesBano Bank over allegations her ex-husband was allowed to take out mortgages in her name without her knowledge.
Amy Tingler filed a complaint in Ohio Circuit Court against WesBanco Bank Inc. and Scott D. Tingler alleging slander of title and conversion.
Tingler claims her ex-husband Scott, who was charged with unlawfully distributing controlled narcotics in 2018, obtained fraudulent loans in her name. Tingler alleges she "did not apply for credit with WesBanco, did not sign" two mortgages made in her name in 2017 "and did not receive any benefits" from the mortgages.
Tingler seeks damages, a declaration to make the mortgages null and void, a trial by jury and all other just relief. She is represented by Edmund L. Wagoner and David E. Goddard of Morgantown.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Jason A. Cuomo.
