A Bank Customer Now Gets Their Money From Account Drained

A bank customer now gets their money from account drained claiming she is more upset with the bank than with the actual situation.

A JPMorgan Chase customer who watched tens of thousands of dollars exit her account says she’s more upset with the bank than the scammers who made her a target, reports The Daily Hodl.

Kristal Kuhn in San Diego says she recently received a phone call from someone pretending to work at Chase’s fraud department, reports FOX News 5.

Out of an abundance of caution, Kristal says she asked her daughter to Google the caller’s phone number, and the results showed it belonged to Chase.

At that point, the caller claimed they flagged a $2,000 transaction and would be sending an access code to Kristal.

Soon after giving the access code to the caller, Kristal says she looked at her accounts and saw that the thieves were moving money around, attempting to transfer a huge sum in one go.

Kristal says she immediately called Chase to freeze the transaction but was told she needed to visit a local branch.

It took her about five minutes to get to a Carlsbad branch but no one was available to assist her.

Still on the phone with Chase, the lender said she could try again the next day because there was no one available to assist her, prompting her to rush to a Vista branch where she again received no help.

She abruptly left to visit a third branch in San Marco where her account was flagged, but the employees who called Chase’s back office struggled to freeze her account.

Eventually it was successfully frozen, after the thieves had already drained her account to the tune of $49,500.

“Had the accounts been frozen in the first five minutes when I asked for it to be frozen, we would not be – or even in the second bank, or even at the beginning of the third bank – we would not be in this situation, and now we’re out $49,000…

I am more angry with Chase Bank than I am with the scammers because of how much Chase Bank failed us as a customer.”

Kristal says she reached out to the FBI and filed a complaint with Chase but the lender refused to give her a refund, claiming that she approved the transaction.

US banking laws require lenders to reimburse victims for certain types of fraud, but not when customers are tricked into giving scammers access to their account.

A massive bank will now close more branches as it continues to trim its network in response to falling visits, sources report.

Barclays has announced that it will shutter 22 more bank branches.

The new cuts mean that Barclays is now in line to shut 90 branches this year and another six in 2025.

“Where there is no longer enough demand to support a branch, we maintain an in-person presence through our Barclays Local network, live in over 300 locations, based in libraries, town halls, mobile vans and our banking pods,” said a spokesperson.

“We also support access to cash with our cashback without purchase service, 24-hour deposit-taking ATMs and by working alongside the Post Office and Cash Access UK.”

Lloyds, NatWest, and TSB are among the other UK banks to take an axe to their branch networks over recent weeks, reports Finextra.

“In contrast, US giant JPMorgan Chase will open 500 new branches over the next three years as part of a multi-billion dollar investment in its network, while PNC is to invest $1 billion in refurbishing its existing branches and opening 100 new locations,” says the outlet.
