Additional Notes

Complaint: My former name is Angela Plonski. My son William Plonski had a bank account with NexTier Bank brought to him at his school (Rowan Elementary School in Seneca Valley School District in Western PA) with a "Save for America" kids bank account. They have banking days at the school. I divorced their dad during his time at the school and we didn't save after 2007. He left the school in 2009 or 2010 to larger schools. The account was forgotten. I received a statement showing the amount in the account ($12.27) was withdrew. The statement was for June 2013 and the monies were taken out 4/12/13. I contacted them to inquire June 2013 and they advised to go to state.pa.us to the unclaimed property site. I researched and did not find anything. We were selling our houses and moving and are now settled. I finally looked again and still nothing was listed for my son William Plonski in the unclaimed property section of the PA treasury. Today I called the bank and was given the # for the pa Treasury. I called the number and his info was not there. I call the bank again and on hold. Then I was told that due to inactivity there was a $25 fee applied and his was under that amount so they took the money to cover it. I asked why it was done without contacting me first so I could do something. She stated they contact everyone but I received nothing or I would have done something. It isn't a huge amount of money but this is accounts started in an elementary school that kids move out of. This is money taken from kids as they grow and parents may not remember. I don't feel this was handled well. I was given a line of bull and the run around taking hours out of my life to search for money they took from my child.

Desired Settlement: I want my son's $12.27 and I want all the kids who started these savings accounts via Rowan elementary school adequately notified that this could happen to their kids.

BBB's Final Determination: Business offered a resolution. Consumer did not pursue further with BBB and the matter was assumed to be resolved
