It's too bad, I would give you 100 recs if I were able! Creeps. Supposedly, though, they are working on upgrading the security so eventually (how long that is in Uncle's timeline, though, is murkier) you will have full encryption. I thought it was a bad idea when they started the direct deposit option a few years ago with such minimal security-just an invitation to scammers to clean you out. And after all that, they have the nerve to say "Oh, well, sorry you lost it all, we're not responsible, have a nice day."

I've got some prime real estate in the south of Florida to sell
