So, just reading about the lady who had $800,000. tucked away in a bank safety deposit box.
The bank calls the home and "releases" this information to her husband. Now, she is suing the bank.
Good grief, I hope so. (There are a lot of issues in this case re: their marriage, her secrecy, etc.)
What I find ironic is the bank's employee even dealing with the issue by phone and also, his releasing it like, "Oh, by the way, your wife has a dental appt. Monday at 2:30 pm"
Yesterday, I called our gas company to change the name on the account to my name. "Do you have Power of Attorney?" I do.
"Ok, send it to us and we'll change the name."
"I can't risk mailing the original."
After much discussion, they agreed to a photocopy. I understand they need proof but think of the difference on the handling of these two situations. BTW, they have no local office and I'm paying a bill and have been their customer since January 1974 - but, I also understand their need to protect Wayne who set the account up.
