The Press-Register reported that Wayne Hartung – owner of Marshall Auto Painting and Collision, Hartung Collision Center and Har-Mar Collision Center – filed a civil suit against the Mobile, Ala., bank that previously employed Anita Fincher as a manager to recover damages for his alleged loss. Recently, criminal charges were filed against Fincher for transferring more than $800,000 from customers’ accounts into her personal account and accounts of family members. Hartung’s suit alleges he’s one of the casualties.

Hartung first noticed cash withdrawals from his business accounts that weren’t made by him in 2005, he told the Press-Register. For several years, he said he accepted explanations from the bank, but the discrepancies in his activity and the activity appearing on his accounts increased. Hartung said that in the end, he was out tens of thousands of dollars.


Hartung’s suit also alleges that the bank in question, RBC, allowed his former assistant to use forged checks to take $179,000 from his accounts. The assistant pled guilty to criminal charges of theft in May, the Press-Register reported.

“You will never imagine the stress I have been under,” Hartung told the newspaper. “I’m ruined.”
