A refund was illegally refunded by XXXX to a closed debit/checking account w/ Citizens Bank XXXX After many phone calls into Citizens Bank, was finally able to find that the refund was in fact sent to my closed account & a check was issued for the refund one month later. After 4+ weeks of no check being received, I began to call into Citizens Bank requesting a re-issue be done as I still had not received the refund check that was righfully mine. Another week passed and they stated they were going to notify the correct department to place a stop payment on the check. Low and behold, two days later I received the check and I did call to make them aware that I had received the check. I received a phone call assuring me that the stop payment had not been placed on the check and it was ok to cash. Upon cashing the check on XXXX XXXX, 2015 when the refund was placed into my closed account on XXXX XXXX, 2015, I received a letter from my current institution on XXXX XXXX, 2015 via mail that there was a stop payment and that the funds had been withdrawn from my account. This refund was performed by XXXX on XXXX XXXX and I am still waiting for that refund as it has been 3 months. Who exactly is getting the interest on this said money that does n’t belong to them yet make it ever so difficult to return to the rightful owner?
