But come on, seriously, what the fuck.
I mean, okay, I can see this happening once. I can even see it happening several times before people really got used to the pattern, back when it was a new and surprising thing. But after the fourth or fifth time it happened, wouldn't the banks kinda wise up to this shit*?
Because here's the thing. Wal-Mart can employ a dude to look in on the guys in the storeroom to make sure they're not playing fantasy football instead of unloading Chinese plastic, and the consequences of that lost time is pretty minor. My company can monitor my internet use to make sure I'm not spending too much time dicking around on eBay, and the worst that could happen if I stop doing my job altogether is that a textbook is a week late. So wouldn't you think that, if you had in your employ a guy who, if he's screwing around on the job, he could lose your company $7 billion and help plunge the entire world into a financial crisis, you might just keep a close eye on that motherfucker?
*: Unless, of course, the banks already know about them and don't do anything as long as it's profitable! HA HA BUT THAT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN
