CHASE BANK SAYS IT’S REAL SORRY FOR RUINING GUY’S LIFE And it only took them 13 months to say it July 11, 2011
Be honest, kind and work diligently and you’ll always receive your just reward.
(REGIONAL) -- We don't know about you but any story that starts off with, “There are tales of corporate arrogance and idiocy. And then there's this,” gets our attention from the get go.
This is perhaps the easiest way to comprehend what appears to be the sheer lunacy behind a bank’s stupidity that evidently cost 28-year-old Ikenna Njoku his freedom, his job, his car and his reputation.
You see, he got arrested – and it went downhill from there - over an unbelievable scenario where all he did was walk into a Chase bank branch inside a Fred Meyer store in Auburn last year to cash his income tax refund check.
To simply cash an income tax refund check. That's it. He just wanted to get his income tax refund money.
Njoku finally got a “Gosh we’re sorry,” out of Chase Bank but it took him 13 months and going to a lawyer to get it.
There is a cautionary tale here somewhere. We’re just not sure what it is.

It should give you the willies if you ever think of the old bromide that goes, "There but for the grace of God go I."
