My friend (yes, an actual friend)'s car was broken into today and they took her debit card and ID. She told me that all but $20 of her money was taken out of her account and is freaking out because she has to wait like 10 days now to get a response after making the claim. She said that the thief or thieves withdrew multiple times from different banks and said that they tried to deposit a check into another account because I guess they somehow got a hold of her account #. Her bank is aware of this and I assume will be looking into it very soon or have already started. I was telling her that there's really no way for them to get away with this since the banks have the faces of those criminals since they had to withdraw from them and that the deposit into another account is the paper trail that will lead to the account's info of whoever stole her debit card. I just wanted to get your opinions on this. I feel that she's pretty safe and that she will get her money back with her protection program and there's definite evidence of unusual activity and now an attempted deposit. Is she pretty safe though with the events that have happened? I have no idea how they were able to get her account information if they didn't ask the bank teller. Wouldn't the bank teller have to have definitive proof though that the person withdrawing the money was the actual person? If they showed the teller the ID, wouldn't the teller immediately know that it's not the same person withdrawing from the account? That's the only part that is really puzzling and seems to be a security breach. I really do hope that she gets her money back because she had a few thousand that's now in someone else's hands.
