Re: bank laws
No- I would want to review your deposit agreement to confirm-but if NA, their action would constitute THEFT.
Call or email for help.
Re: bank laws
Doubtful. There could be some circumstances when they could, though. So, it is impossible to determine the answer based on the information provided. What does your contract with the bank (i.e. account opening agreement) say? Is the business a sole proprietorship or some other form of business? Are the accounts cross-collateralized or otherwise linked? Is there any other document giving the bank authority to do that? Is there a personal guarantee? I'd want to know the answers to those questions before giving a definitive answer.
