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?
