Hello thier , I have some Certificate`s of Deposit Bonds , From Back in the 1980`s , that my parents Gave to me when i was young..

They was never Cashed and When i brought them to the Bank , they refused to honer them , as they said that all the records they had , have been destryed , because they are to old :\

Now these bonds are for sevral thousand dollors , at interest rate 14 1/4 %

renuable every 30 days , with no time limmit on them.

My parebts are still alive and they to tryed to cash them in , and got same problem.

The bonds , show the interest rate , they have a Sir # and are still in mint condition. They also are clearly marked legit , and show the amount and interest.

Now we want to get our money , even face value for the bonds , but we have no clue on what to do..

The bank of nova Scotia is being crooked , and i and we do not no how to take this further!

Any help would be good..

Maybe you need to speak with an attorney or paralegal.

ive thought about that , but im not sure what they charge , as i have had bad luck with one just over a year ago ,due to a injury i had , and i got nailed $4800 a hour in legle fee`s.

I would do that thought , if i could find one that would do it for a persentage of what ever we would recieve back , even a persentage on just the face value. But i wouldent go by the hour.

Hi Chris

Before you hire a lawyer or pay someone a percentage, you should go through the complaint process with the ScotiaBank.

If you have no success, there are government consumer agencies that deal specifically with banks. There are also indepentant consumer agencies that could help.

Good luck.

I would skip the bank complaint process and go directly to the consumer agencies dealing with such issues.
