Whitefish Credit Union (WFCU) crime victim Dennis Thornton moved one step closer to receiving justice for the theft of 500 acres of his property in Somers, Montana, recently valued at over $100 Million, as he has now filed a criminal complaint with the Flathead County Sheriff against WFCU, charging them with theft.
As illustrated several times in articles published by Montana Daily Gazette, it is a violation of the Montana Code Annotated (MCA) to acquire property by threat or deception, and WFCU skillfully managed to employ both methods against numerous credit union members, leaving financial ruin and shattered lives in their wake.
In a move that is sure to send shock waves throughout Flathead Valley’s legal community, Thornton’s complaint accuses the Frampton Purdy law firm, specifically, partner Sean Frampton, of electronically transferring 24 tracts of land into the ownership of WFCU using invalid deeds. If Frampton is investigated and found guilty of the charges that Thornton has alleged against him, the well-known Whitefish attorney could face 30 years in prison.
