@MeeShell:  I would determine how easily you could move your business — and your money — elsewhere, and then do it if it wasn’t too much of a bother.  What the hell!!!!

That’s really bad!  I thought my bank had screwed up badly, but it was nothing compared to something like that!

Did you and your ex have a joint account before?

@MeeShell:  WOW – i have no idea how they managed to do that.  I used to work for a Canadian bank and I can tell you that with us, once an account was made joint, it couldn’t be undone (well…if you went far enough up the chain I think they could do it, but it certainly wasn’t easy and wouldn’t happen by accident – it involved a lot of overrides).  

As far as adding your ex – I assume you had accounts way back when that were joint with him.  It sounds like someone was trying to fix things too quickly and didn’t verify the information before making things joint.  That’s a HUGE risk – they owe you BIG.

@MeeShell:  I had no idea the National Bank was gone!  shows how little time I’ve spent back in Auckland recently (boo).  I used to love the stirring music and that horse… yes I’m silly.
