The San Diego Chargers, Dwight Freeney, linebacker is suing Bank of America (BofA), claiming that it was objective of a scheme of fraud, he says, was “aided and abetted” by the banking giant.
“In 2010, Dwight Freeney allowed Bank of America to manage his assets, including his salary of the NFL. Two years later, Dwight had lost more than $20 million because of a fraud of the BofA scheme”, he said in a statement, Jeffrey B. Isaacs, lawyer of the athlete.
“The entire plan - continues-not could have been carried out without the participation and approval of the BofA. It was a nightmare scenario. My client went to one of the largest banks in the country to ask for help to manage his finances. And what did BofA? Treat it badly”.
As a result of the economic loss, claimed the player, was forced to close his restaurant Hollywood Rolling Stone.
Bank of America still has not acted on the matter.
