A prison inmate has filed a $2 million lawsuit that accuses Home Federal Savings Bank of breach of contract and aiding in the invasion of his privacy, according to Washington County Circuit Court records.
M. Abdullah El-Amin, a prisoner at the Maryland Correctional Institution south of Hagerstown, says in the suit that he opened a savings account at the bank last September.
In May of this year, according to the suit, El-Amin sent in a withdrawal slip instructing the bank to make three $100 money orders payable to him. Instead, the suit alleges, the bank sent three blank $100 money orders, which aroused the curiosity of correctional officials, according to the suit.
