LAVEEN, AZ (3TV / CBS 5) – Pure relief. That’s what Joe Torres said after learning that nearly $ 20,000 is back in his bank account.

Laveen man says he’s missing $ 20,000 while trying to pay off Harley-Davidson
In a previous 3 On Your Side report, Torres explained how he wanted to pay off his Harley-Davidson. So after his finance company sent him a reimbursement letter, Torres asked his bank, US Bank, to transfer the money from his account. But in the course of the transaction, the money sort of disappeared because the finance company kept pretending that it never received the money, although the US bank continued to insist on it. ‘send.
“Where’s your $ 20,000?” 3 Gary Harper of On Your Side asked. âI don’t know,â Torres replied. “It’s in limbo, I guess. Who knows?”
After waiting for a response for two months, Torres contacted 3 On Your Side, and I asked US Bank to investigate. He did, and within days Torres says all the money was returned to his account. Almost $ 20,000.
Joe says it only happened because of 3 On Your Side. “Decisions can only be made if you put things on the right level. So 3 On Your Side knows how to handle these situations.”
