Celebrating the end of a bad relationship, a woman discovered that something was wrong when she was buying groceries. Her ATM card showed insufficient funds. The bank informed her they had proof she withdrew all her money. Later that week, her bank recorded a deposit that equaled what she had lost. Confused, she wondered if the bank had caught a mistake and fixed it. The bank insisted that, according to their records, she withdrew the money and later made a deposit to replace it. It was not a bank error. This incident was just the beginning. Early on, the woman realized only her ex-boyfriend had access to the passwords and personal information to manipulate her bank account.
If you have ever watched a crime drama on television, you have likely heard an officer inform a suspect of his right to remain silent. After all, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a decision in 1966 requiring officers to advise detained persons of this important right. Still, during an arrest, individuals often forget to exercise their right not to speak to investigators.
