Too bad Whitesville State Bank is being sued for fraudulent conduct among other accounts such as unconscionable inducement to refinance, breach of contract, illegal return of payments, misrepresentations in debt collections, and unreasonable publications. These actions will be taken in the Circuit Court of Boone County, West Virginia. How can the people of Boone County accept a bank that commits such illegal activites. This is not the "Best damn bank in the Country" as Kevin Miliam stated. Legal actions have already been filed in the Court House in Madison, WV. Feel free to grab yourself a copy.

I hope they pull the personal banking transactions of current and retired high ranking employees. You do not get to be a bank officer without a degree any place but Whitesville except by being slick!

When all payments are paid and they forclose as soon as they found out that his wife had cancer they threw it into forclosure without a notice of right to cure. Its pretty sad. His wife died of cancer due to the stress that they didnt know if they were going to have a place to live. They stole about 500,000 dollars back in 2004 or 05 from their comsumers. Its not the first time it's happened. Heres another article about them Boone County woman sues estranged husband after forgeries
1/5/2006 11:22 AM By Chris Dickerson -

CHARLESTON - Insurance checks with forged signatures are behind a Boone County woman's lawsuit against her estranged husband.

Stella Bias filed the suit last month in Kanawha Circuit Court , listing Emory Bias, Whitesville State Bank, Roger Goff & Associates Insurance Inc. and Erie Insurance Company as defendants.

The suit says the couple's home in Peytona caught fire on Dec. 15, 2002. The couple separated a week later, the suit says.

After that, Stella Bias claims Emory Bias began forging or having someone else forge her signature to various documents.

She claims he did so on a state Division of Motor Vehicles Notice of Change in Dealership when he changed the name of Racine Used Cars to Bias Used Cars. She claims he took her driver's license to Whitesville State Bank and employee Toni Coon notarize the document without witnessing Stella Bias sign it.

She also says that on Jan. 8, 2004, Emory Bias had her name removed from a homeowners policy through Goff Insurance and that the change was accepted without proper documentation.

As a result of the house fire, Stella Bias claims Erie issued checks to Emory Bias in the amounts of $1,000 and $4,50 for contractors to remove debris. Two more checks from Erie in the amounts of $10,000 and $31,209.46 were written for personal property.

Stella Bias says she was given none of these funds.

She claims another check issued by Erie to Bank One, Emory Bias and Stella Bias was to pay off the loan on the home. She says he again forged or had forged her signature.

She says three other checks from Erie - for $277,$5,000 and $34,212.26 - were issued to both Emory and Stella Bias. But again, she says he forged her signature and cashed them at Whitesville State Bank. Additionally, Stella Bias says Emory Bias cashed a tax return check for $4,514 issued to both of them with a forged signature at the bank.

In the suit, filed by attorney Anne E. Shaffer, Stella Bias sues on the counts of forgery, conversion, fraud, breach of contract, bad faith, negligence and violation of statute.

She seeks compensatory damages, punitive damages against Emory Bias for annoyance and inconvenience, attorney fees, court costs and other relief.

Stella Bias seeks a jury trial.

The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Duke Bloom.

Why dont you go ahead and get a bank account with them and see if they dont screw you. Check your bank account balance and then when you ask where did my money go, they tell you it was never there, and you would be one of the people to just let it go, when they take your house see what you say.

<quoted text>
WHITESVILLE, W.Va.(AP)- A branch manager of a Boone County bank is accused of embezzling nearly half a million dollars.

An information filed Monday in federal court alleges that Karyn Lee Burton misappropriated $495,670 from June of 2000 and December of 2005 while working for Whitesville State Bank.

An information is different from an indictment in that it generally indicates a defendant has agreed to cooperate with prosecutors.

The filing says that Burton was an assistant auditor at the bank's Whitesville headquarters for the first half of the alleged scheme and later worked as branch manager of the bank's Comfort branch.

The filing contained no specifics about how the alleged embezzlement was carried out.

do you have anything else to say now. This is just what I found on the computer and in the courts. When i found all this I knew sure as hell that i wasnt going to get a bank account from. If the employees are crooks then what does that say about the owner and the president of the Bank. The lawsuit is against Robert Lee Miliam jr. Hes the president of the company, according to the court papers. Sounds like a real winning bank to me. Just like Capitol one and all the illegal foreclosures they were doing, you might wanna check your banks a bit closer before posting smart ass comments like you know what your talking about.

I have something to say to the above posting. You can go out on the internet and find a lot more trash on other banks than you can on Whitesville State Bank. If you have a case against them, get a lawyer and sue for damages. Otherwise, what business is it of yours?

This is such bullshit. Eight years ago, really? If you keep deposit tickets, etc., no way they can take your money. Foreclosure just doesn't happen over night, there is a history of payments, receipts. Give me a break. You must have really been turned down for a loan! lol

Then why does his lawyer have every reciept for his loans, can you explain? Yet they still foreclosed on a house that all payments were made on. Then turned around and bought the house the same day, without even giving a right to cure notice. Sure seems funny the lawyers just coming up with all this stuff. Its a good thing he kept all the reciepts,etc. And when did getting turned down for a loan come into play. He wasnt trying to get any loans. Sooo who put those words in your mouth. He already had loans, funny a man who make 120,000 dollars a year with automatic withdraw, cant make his payments according to the bank. Seems to me you should do a little more research before you make comments... You must be an employee trying to make the bank look good. I have never heard of anyone sticking up for such criminal acts, but apparently you do a good job at it. Are you trying to let people get screwed over. Thats pretty interesting.

Just to let you and everyone know i am the one who everyone is talking about and for itty bitty I feel your just about as incompetent with your knowledge as Whitesville State Bank is on how to do business. As for a bank they are supposed to be there for there customers not for there pockets. As it is I was taken advantage of by Whitesville State Bank as well as my late wife and as for one of the main reasons my wife passed away is because of the stress that this illegal foreclosure had done to her. As it was stated by her Dr. that she was to stay stress free and with there illegal actions they perform caused her cancer treatment not to work as it should of. When Karen Berton had embezzled 5000,000 I had 3 loans with Whitesville state bank so yes all my loans I had yrs ago is kinda part of this lawsuit as they added parts of them into this loan and now after all this time there trying to rip me off again. They refused my lawyer the paper work from my account as they did when I requested back yrs ago so as for this lawsuit. It is legal and is in progress with the courts. I felt that you, out of all people should be informed as to how well this bank is, but everyone is entitled to there own opinion as I am. If you have anymore smart-alick comments please refrain yourself until you know the whole truth and not what some idiot has told you. Thank you all- Andy Kyser

How many times did bank employees or their families end up buying foreclosures or reposessions? How can bank employees appraise properties that are given loans by the bank? Sounds like a conflict of interest to me. FYI I do not bank there, or have applied for a loan...ever! I think a audit on the officers is a good idea along with tax returns and private business practices!

What does any of the news your posting have to do with you losing your house? Get a grip. I know personally that the bank in Whitesville bends over backwards to keep people from losing their homes or cars or whatever. Theyve been around forever and the local economy has been bad forever and they hardly ever take someones house. I see hundreds of repo notices a day in the paper from most banks and you never see Whitesville. If you're looking for someone to blame, look in the mirror.

This is too funny! The bank has regulations and auditors in place for these things. There are certain procedures, anybody with "common sense" knows this. I am not an employee of the bank, I am just using common sense! You must not have graduated or like I said, had to have been turned down for a loan! lololol

You must be the dumbest individual I have ever heard. Your just dumb. I hope you get royally screwed by Whitesville Bank. If you graduated you would be getting a copy of the court papers. Instead of sitting on your ass and posting dumb dumb DUMB remarks.

And for you, you don't even live in this damn town. Your from Indiana, how the hell do you know them personally and why are you reading WV news when you don't live here! you don't know anyone here. or should I say probably, but when did it become any of your damn business. Whitesville Bank only has like 4 damn locations and Indiana isn't even one of them. Are you trying to tell me you have a bank account with them. And you drive all the wayyyyy down to WV because it is that great of a bank?? Yeeeeeeaaaa I totally believe that, that flies over bout as well as a lead balloon

For everyone out there I wasn't really wanting to file this lawsuit, but as it turned out I had to I had made 3 different attempts to settle this matter.They turned it down then they made an offer of 18,000 + lower the remaining loan. Then they made an offer that would have screwed me over yet again by offering a land contract deal so if they said I missed even 1 dollar they could take my home, but now that they had ruined my credit and any chances to even find another home or to even get back to work I can't. I didn't start this fight, I was just informing everyone that this is real and yes they forced me to file this lawsuit. That is how it goes as they wanted to file illegal foreclosure papers and then sell my home to themselves to see if they could make a quick dollar. This is my opinion on these matters, so the ones that are trying to dog me for suing Whitesville State Bank needs to see the real case at hand so go get a copy like some have already. If you really think there that great then you really are looking to get ripped off as I did, not once, not twice, but 4 times over different loans. For Lee Miliam, he promised me back in 06 when Karen Berton embezzled 500,000 dollars and received only a slap on the hand that he would find me another semi truck which he did nothing but lie. Anyone that has anything to say about me, needs to really know the truth or keep their mouth shut as they are just talking out of there back sides. I have the lawsuit you don't so go get your copy as it is available to the public and for the other things posted about this bank I can see why they posted it as to show that there is a history in illegal activities that the bank has done.

I hope the person that is claiming to be the victim here has proof of what he is saying. This person is posting online for everyone to read. It's different going out and verbally talking trash about a person or business but when you post it online, it is hard to deny. Have you never heard of slander? This bank can sue you for slandering their name and anything else you are posting if it is not true. I think you should let your lawyers handle this. If you have a lawyer, you should inform him of your very public discussion on Topix. I'm sure he would advise you against this.
