I am curious, how did they "get to her bank account"? A lot of my international friends have this scare of people getting to know their bank account number and I can't understand why. Is it really that easy to pull money from an account that *belong to another person*? Over here I need a valid ID or a PIN-secured cryptographic device (that look like a simple pocket calculator) just to move money between my own accounts. Is bank security really that terrible?

Vital papers will demonstrate their vitality by spontaneously moving from where you left them to where you can't find them.
