    WHY did she do that?  Why doesn't she have her own bank account?  She can take it to court.

    This issue is between your daughter and her boy friend.  She should discuss this with a lawyer.

      except a lawyer might cost more than the money in the account

    So she gave him a gift and now demands it back?  Her error giving it.  Her problem so why are you asking about it?

    • Not illegal unless they have an official, signed agreement.  Even then it is an odd thing to do.  But this is a good lesson on how to spot a loser and cheap at the price.

    That is, unfortunately, a hard lesson, but it's one that your daughter has to learn. When you receive money and literally GIVE it to someone else, why would you expect to get it back? 

    She can't claim money she gave away.

    In the breaking news department, Steve Mnuchin has said there will be a web application for taxpayers who didn't use direct deposit.  The app will allow people to provide their banking information to the IRS for purposes of direct depositing stimulus payments.  If it can also be used for those who changed banks, perhaps your daughter can use it to prevent the boyfriend from getting the stimulus check.

      If true, this would lead to massive fraud.

      For what? She asked to have the money PUT IN HIS ACCOUNT. The IRS doesn't audit people because their girlfriends are irritated with them, and certainly not because IT DID WHAT SHE ASKED.

    She would have to take him to civil court. It's not a theft under common law because she willingly put it in her account but, unless she agreed to let him keep the money, it still is hers. Of course, if he tells a different story, it may be hard to win.

    Translation: She GAVE him the money and is upset because the twerp is keeping the GIFT.

    Expensive life lesson.

    Most banks won't accept a direct deposit unless the person's name is on the account so it is interesting that the deposit was accepted if her name isn't on his account.

    She willingly sent the money to that account.  She could try small claims court but probably wouldn't win.

      I took that to mean that most banks would have that same policy.  Apparently, my bank was just referring to THEIR policy.

    What a stupid thing to do. Trying to sue the guy is a waste of time. Kiss your money goodbye and learn how to pick better boyfriends.
