Bank of Mingo Officials under Federal investigation

CHARLESTON – An investigation that has been over shadowed by those involving political corruption in Mingo County is now emerging into the spotlight, and involves a local financial chain of banks as well as individuals who are well known in the county and the City of Williamson.


The federal investigation has been ongoing since the first part of this year into what role officials with the Bank of Mingo played in assisting local coal-mining contract companies with illegal withdrawals that enabled them to pay workers in cash, in an attempt to avoid paying workers’ compensation insurance premiums.
