Draconas Posted October 9, 2015 Share Posted October 9, 2015 (edited) I had a third party app that's linked to my paypal that monitors my spending automatically, it pinged me that I had spent over $200 this week somehow, paypal pulls from my bank, so I went to my bank shoddy website and logged in, the damn thing always begs me for a security code over phone so I did that, then a familiar screen that I always dread appears "your password is out of date, please enter a new password"I grab a password gen from my password manager and it auto-enters one, not noticing that A. it overwrote the stored one, and B. didn't fill in a required field of entering the old one, then a massive clusterfuck begins, it repeatedly attempts to log me in with an invalid password until "LEL FOR SECURITY REASONS U R LOCKED OUT OF UR ACCOUNT" I enter my username, clicked password recovery, answered the stupid fucking question and... im brought back to the "failed login, you're locked out of this account" screen, so I repeat this process... another 3 times, it just loops, so I look up the phone recovery instructions "call [NUMBER] and press option 6" I called and did just the "WERE SORRY THAT OPTION DOESN'T EXIST, PLEASE ENTER YOUR PARTY'S EXTENSION NUMBER" shitSo not only do I have a broke ass website that hates my password manager, has a broken account recovery on the website and over the phone, but im locked out of my OWN ACCOUNT until I can call them at really annoying hours that impedes my sleep schedule (I sleep during the day) to unfuck my account because everything else is broken.So I get to go sift through paypal and other shit and figure out what's going on until I get a definitive answer tomorrow.Anyone else have any fun stories about their bank's fuckups?
