Money Stolen from Bank Account in Arizona
I am unable to disclose the name of the bank for legal reasons, but when I was 18, I had opened up a bank account, placing $150 into the savings account. It was early 2004, a little into February when I noticed that $100 was withdrawn (this bank in the same year were also responsible for several thousand identity thefts due to a contractor company compromising information from people who held accounts with this bank). The location of the machine was located in Arizona. I live in Maryland and had never been to Arizona in my life, so I contacted the bank and they kept asking me if I went to Arizona.
They told me that they were unable to identify the person (via camera) as to who made the withdrawal. I couldn't believe this was happening and told them I wanted to close the account and go to another bank. They then explained to me that my personal information was compromised somehow and they were very sorry that this happened. They put $100 in my account. Even though they restored my $100, I closed the account anyway and have not had a bank account from there since.
