Elderly Woman Shafted By Big Bank: Let's Submit It To The Empathy Test

A Milwaukee woman recounts how a bank took her long-dormant check from her safety deposit box - - her relatively minimal life savings of about $19,000, actually - - because banking rules said it had been there too long.

Marie Rohde tells the compelling story in The Journal Sentinel.

So where do you come down on this story? Is the bank in the right, or should it return the woman's money.

Put another way...suppose it was your grandmother?
