first national bank of valparaiso was bought out by first source bank. i've had a checking account with them since my senior year of high school. a good friend of my family's used to be a "higher-up" at the main branch, brian terpstra. i think he lives in texas now; man, do i miss him!
anyway, when the banks switched my account number from FNB to first source's new numbers, apparently someone else got my info as well. i'm just now realizing it and am PISSED. i'm making the big trip to downtown valpo tomorrow to open up a can. (please tell me you know this phrase.) cuz i can't think of a better way to express my anger that this wan't caught. nor was it even MY OWN CHECK. the guy who signed "hull" didn't even spend my last name right. he was trying to pose as my dad, whose name was also on the account. he withdrew money. and apparently first source was happy to oblige.
there is hell to pay for this. i am pissed. and although it's not hundreds of dollars, it's the principle of the matter.
AND I WANT MY MONEY BACK. i'll update my blog tomorrow to let you know what they tell me. i have no problem picketing their dumb bank just for fun. i need to be outside more anyway. and i love to talk to people. but i hope they do the right thing.
