Tales which warm the heart...

Unless, of course, it was your account which was being siphoned:

A bank worker who shifted money from the accounts of well-off customers to help cover the overdrafts of poorer ones has been sentenced in Germany. The media are describing the woman, who took no money for herself and is now repaying €1.1 million from a tiny pension, as a female Robin Hood.
Of note:

She tried to transfer the money back once the audits were over, but that wasn't always possible because some of the poorer customers had run up ever-increasing overdrafts.
Maybe they ran up ever-increasing overdrafts because they faced no consequences for their reckless spending in the first place?
