A 64 year old man who was dying of cancer was attempting to have his son listed as Power of Attorney for his bank accounts.  The mangers at the above referenced location refused and called the police.  The police were called because the son recorded the managers refusal on his cellphone.  This was a request from a client of that bank, who was dying of cancer and on a life support machine.   

"There was no honest or professional reason for the refusal" said the son.  The son also stated, "Putting a 64 year old man, who was dying of cancer, and on a life support machine through a police encounter was the most inhuman thing they could've done".  The man had to then travel further, while on a life support machine to another First Commonwealth bank location to satisfy his request.  The second location did as he requested and apologized to the man the son stated.  

The bank later closed the son's bank accounts after his father passed away from cancer and forever barred him from the bank.  

When asked why, First Commonwealth bank stated in a letter that they felt the son was unsatisfied with their service and gave no further reason.

 

CONFIRMED AND VERIFIED, THIS ACTUALLY HAPPENED  

Currently the FDIC has accepted a compliant form the son and is conducting an investigation on the bank. 

The cancer victim's son recorded his father while at the bank during the police encounter on his cellphone and has the recording to date.  The man was obviously very sick and clearly on a life support machine.  The son also has supplied the letters received by First Commonwealth bank about this situation to Voice.Gold

    RE: UPDATE AND END STORY 

FDIC sends son a letter that stated generic reasons for First Commonwealth Bank's actions.  Cancer victim versus bank, bank wins.
