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.




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.

What is with all of these postings of old news? Who cares about these old cases? I'm sure these have all been settled by now. The second posting is so old that the lady has been sentenced, served her time and is now out of prison. It appears that whoever is posting these is wanting to cause negative feelings toward the bank. This person must be a customer who is trying to hurt the bank by posting these old articles. Find me a business, especially a bank, that doesn't have a dissatisfied customer. This is really low to go out and dredge up all of this old news.

My thoughts exactly! I think they probably were turned down for a loan, or tried to have a checking account and couldn't add! It has been eight years, give me a break.

Well, why am i bringing up old news you ask. Lets see, because there is a new case that has begun. I think people should know about what their bank has done and is doing. If it hasnt stopped in 8 years what makes you think it going to stop now... Any logical person knows that a person who repeats and repeats the same shady actions, most likely wont stop. Whose to say it cant happen to other people. Theres a case against them now for Unconscionable Inducement to refinance, Unreasonable Publication of Debt, Interference with Right to Cure, Unconscionable Inducement, Breach of Contract, Illegal Return of payments, and Misrepresentations in Debt Collections. Its at the Madison Court House. Grab yourself a copy, its public knowledge. Thats a lot of counts against them. They have a pretty big lawsuit sitting in thier hands. I felt that i would just inform the public of this. Its our money, we work hard for it, and at no point should a bank come in and swip it from out of our hands, just trying to pre-warn the smart people of America. Because it might save them from the headache. I wouldnt use a bank if I knew all of this. That is just me personally though.

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

I see this as a winning case. Many individuals deal with these kind of fraudulent acts. Not all individuals are honest and caring as they should be. Karma tends to come around in the Court side of things. I am also sorry to hear about the passing of your wife. I wish the best of luck to on your case Andy.
