What type of account did they give him. Makes it seem as easy as choosing the wrong thing from a dropdown menu gave him access to all those funds

From the comments after the post:

 

It took BOA 2 weeks to figure this scam out but in 30 minutes they can foreclose.

 

LOL I would have sent DW with the money to Korea and after I got out  in less then 15 months joined her there.

Considering other places money gets wasted, this doesn't offend me one bit. Obviously, it would have been cool if someone a little better prepared got the money but if the dude had a good time, who cares? Smiley Happy
