Wowee - a bank where I've never opened an account is emailing me (yes, moi!) that they have upgraded their system and it shows I've got a HUGE frikkin' balance! Never mind the ethics of the situation - hell, it's a big bank - they can afford a screw up once in a while, so YAY! Gotta take advantage of this deal! Even considering the money has to come from somewhere - it probably would be from some rich Scottish dude, not a bunch of widows, orphans and nuns or anything. They wouldn't miss it either. Or maybe it's like a genie and three wishes - the money just appeared like magic! Kinda like how Teh Won sees funding for his projects!

I'd better be calling - what could go wrong?

Scotland - that's a new twist. At least it's not Nigerian drug money!

They lost your bank account number, too?

I'm beginning to think these guys aren't that good of a bank. I sent them my account information and then they wanted my PIN, and I thought "But you should already know my PIN, right?"
