A bank made a mistake with a savings account and is saying I owe them money. They did not have my phone number on file after I had my account closed, and proceeded to contact my mother. They proceeded to disclose financial information, how much was owned, facts that I closed my accounts and more. I did not have a joint account. I am over 18. This “debt” is infact an error on their side. I then had my mother get very upset believing I was in debt. Did this bank breach privacy law by disclosing information to my parent? Do I have a case?
