Synovus Bank Provides Update on Lawsuit

Synovus Bank announced that it 'strongly denies' allegations in lawsuits that claim the bank failed to stop irregular and suspicious banking transactions by the owners of several temporary staffing firms. The bank issued a response after a request from the Tampa Bay Business Journal, on the heels of the lawsuits, filed Oct. 31. Seven separate lawsuits - each with nearly identical language - were filed by the trustee for the bankruptcy estates of the Clearwater-based staffing firms, collectively referred to as the Able Body Labor Businesses, and owned by Frank Mongelluzzi and his wife, Anne Mongelluzzi. The suits - which are unproven allegations - describe a check-kiting scheme and an attorney representing the bankruptcy trustee said the bank knew or should have known or discovered the scheme as part of standard banking practices. The trustee is asking the court to order Synovus to pay some or all of the $21 million it received in overdraft fees, so other creditors can be repaid. In a counterclaim to the earlier lawsuit, provided to TBBJ by Synovus, the bank offers several defenses, citing both federal and Florida law.

Trustee for Bankrupt Able Body Staffing Firms Sues Synovus Bank

The trustee for the bankruptcy estates of several temporary labor staffing companies has gone to court against Synovus Bank, alleging the bank failed to stop irregular and suspicious banking transactions. That failure caused 'significant damages' to other creditors of the firms - collectively referred to as the Able Body Labor Business - and owned by Frank Mongelluzzi and his wife, Anne Mongelluzzi. Several lawsuits - each with nearly identical language - were filed on October 31, 2014 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida in Tampa by Christine Herendeen, the Chapter 7 bankruptcy trustee for seven companies: Able Body Gulf Coast Inc., Professional Staffing-A.B.T.S. Inc., Westward Ho LLC, Westward Ho II LLC, YJNK III Inc., YJNK XI CA LLC, and Organized Confusion LLP. Each lawsuit alleges that Frank Mongelluzzi and others issued checks drawn on accounts which lacked sufficient funds to cover them, and 'in order to provide cover for their check kiting scheme,' Mongelluzzi and others would continuously write checks drawn on the accounts of other affiliated entities and deposit them before the float period expired, so the checks would not bounce.
