From the financial-chutzpah dept.:
Bank of America allegedly refuses to reverse an identity theft victim’s bank charges, claiming that she — wait for it — benefited from the withdrawn (read: stolen) funds:
Van Valer said they made her feel responsible for the fraud. Initially, the bank reversed $21,000 of fraudulent charges but it refuses to reverse the remaining nearly $9,000 that was taken. Van Valer showed us a letter from fraud investigators at Bank Of America. The letter states Van Valer benefited from the funds that were taken.
Some of the charges that remain include several payments to bail bondsmen. Van Valer has never been to jail or knows anyone who’s inside.
