Georgia Pulls Tax Refund Money Out Of Accounts Leaving Citizens With Overdrafts

Well isn’t this just the nicest thing you ever heard of?

The state Department of Revenue deposited 2010 tax refunds into Georgians' accounts in the last few days then withdrew them, leaving people with strings of bank charges for overdrawn accounts.

Robert Freeman of Valdosta said he noticed his 2010 refund was in his account Sunday, and then it was missing today.

"It happened to me and my brother-in-law," Freeman said. "Unfortunately, he spent his $500 and now he is running around trying to cover bad checks."

When Freeman called his bank, a spokesman told him it had happened to a number of customers.

Will the state payback the people for their misfortune and mounting bank expenses? I highly doubt it.
