Wachovia Bank Accused Of Conspiring|With Telemarketers To Defraud Old Folks

     PHILADELPHIA (CN) – Wachovia Bank is accused of conspiring with telemarketers who defrauded old people of millions of dollars. The federal class action says Wachovia set up accounts for fraudulent “payment processors” working with the telemarketers, even after Wachovia had been warned by other banks of the extensive fraud being committed against the elderly.



     The payment processors named in the complaint are Payment Processing Center, Netchex, Your Money Access, and Guardian Marketing Services Corp. The action says the bank knew its accounts were being used to target old people for fraud, and that “Wachovia continued to participate in the scheme after being told by other banks of the fraud committed by telemarketers and their accomplices, the payment processors”.
