I went to the credit union where Heather works and told the teller I wanted to open a joint account. “No problem”, she said. “Heather will be on the account?” I said, “Oh no. Pick anyone who has a lot of money.” At least I thought it was funny.
Wouldn’t that be cool? Just join yourself to someone else’s account and spend away! I know! Wait a minute. That happens now anyway, right? Isn’t that called identity theft? This would be different, though because the financial institution would be involved so I wouldn’t go to jail. The person who put me on the account would.
I would be a free man! Sure, there would be a lot of restitution to be paid but no problem. I’d just go to another bank, do the same thing and – bam! Restitution solved. No more financial worries for the rest of my free life.
Eventually I would either be put in jail or spend the money from a drug lord. What a great movie that would be! Running from the law and a drug cartel at the same time? I know! I don’t think I’ve ever seen that story played out on TV or the big screen this week!
