    I'm pissed, today I go to sign into Sefcu just to check my funds and it tells me that my bank account has been locked out. I am like "Heh?", I think it may be because I sold 2 RuneScape accounts to a Chinese company and then transfered the money they sent to my PayPal to my Bank Account and they were probably like "OMG! Thats a Chinese Compant depositing monies into his account. LOCK!" In all seriousness though, that is the only thing I can think of. I am going to call tomorrow to see whats going because because I have like 40 or 50 bucks in there that I need.


    Has this ever happened to anyone else?

    Dude this shit happens all the time with pretty much every online banking site. If you think thats bad then you should read up on what PayPal has done to some people

    Huh!? your going to try on/ wear/fit an operating system mascot now that's just freaky!? [​IMG]

    Re acct .... has there been a lot of transactions in and out of that acct lately !? like several in 1 day??

    It could maby caused by you selling virtual/digital items over your paypal and this is whats flagged it up as problematic!?

    when you go see them ask them why exactly this happened [​IMG]

    Early last year I had $499 taken from my account, I got it back within 5 days (missing a few pence due to exchange rates) but it was scary.
    It left me with £2 left on my overdraft at the time.
    I stepped up my security on everything that day, all passwords that lead to something important like money got a new 16 alpha numeric password and if two things were linked (like eBay and paypal) the passwords weren't the same just in case.

    Yeah, I have different passwords for everything now just as precaution. I think there is only 2 things that have the same password just because I don't care about them much XD.

    I am definately going to ask exactly why it happened and if they can unlock it tomorrow because I need my monies.

    This is the third story I've heard in the same amount of days about people being locked out of their bank account, it's starting to worry me [​IMG]

    I say you go into your bank with sawed off shotgun and demand an explanation.
