Addicted: So, some random person is taking this woman's money and simply because s/he refuses to pay it back, the bank simply says "There's nothing we can do. And we can't tell you who took your money."In a way, isn't the bank aiding and abetting this theft? Or at least an accessory?
BraveNewCheneyWorld: ElBarto79: It kind of makes sense, it's not the banks fault you screwed up and they shouldn't have to pay you.It kind of is the bank's fault. Their software asked for the name on the account. It should have been confirming that the number and name matched, just as a teller would. Instead, it asked for the name then threw the data away.
sendtodave: Is this the thread where everyone mocks this woman's intelligence due to her making a simple mistake?Of course it is.
durbnpoisn: nucal: She didn't make sure it was ok after the first month?This.Clearly this woman is an idiot. So is her husband for that matter.But at the same time, they also must have SO MUCH disposable income that they didn't even bother to check on that account for over 2 years. So they are in good shape either way.
LordOfThePings: If there is a wider lesson in Sally's story, it is not to agree to paperless statements.Or to check out your accounts online and verify your biggest transactions (debit or credit).
