A Claysville Afghanistan war veteran had over $25,000 stolen from his bank account and when no one, not his bank nor government agencies would help him, he turned to Occupy Utica.
John McDevitt's story made national headlines when that money was stolen and Bank of America wouldn't credit his account or give him money back.
But, McDevitt says the bank recently wrote him a check, covering the $25,000 fraud.
After trying in vain to get his money back, he says he had enough and turned to Occupy Utica for help.
Brendan Dunn, an organizer of Occupy Utica says they launched a website to spread awareness about john's case.
"We are encourage people to drop their bank accounts from institutions that are too big to fail and too corrupt to fail. So, getting out of institutions of Bank of America and opening accounts with credit unions and local banks like first source among others," explained Dunn.
The war veteran says he will now be moving his money and business to First Source Credit Union.
